Input and output different (PS4, DS4)

Post by Malacko »

hey,

i just now got my adapter from the the shop. When i test my config file without output in the command line everything looks good. Left is left, cross is cross...etc. (D4, Ubuntu) But after i connect it with the PS4 (DS4 => Ubuntu => GIMX adapter => PS4), the output different. So when i press the UP button, on the PS (in the log window too) its recognized as RIGHT, CIRCLE as TRIANGLE, L3 as PS4_Start...etc.

Any tip what is wrong?

config

Hi,

Recent changes in the Linux kernels changed the mappings, forcing an update of the dualshock4.xml. This is quite a bad decision on the Linux kernel side.
