I made some progress with connecting PS3 SIXAXIS controller as joystick to my N900 device. :D
You may find details here: http://tomasz.sterna.tv/2010/01/ps3-...on-nokia-n900/

Now I need to find a nice way to start/stop the sixaxisd and package it to deb.

Next step would be a tool to map joystick keys to keyboard keys, to control the console emulators similar way the wiicontrol does.

Please say this patch is going to be put in the official maemo kernel.
I have been able to build my own kernel with custom patches since i was 12, but i still like my OS to be as clean as possible.

Re: Using PS3 SixAxis controller with N900
 
I'm going to handle sixaxisd with a status menu widget. It will sit hidden waiting for connection, and show status menu icon and reveal itself once controller is connected. The only option of the revealed widget will be to break the controller connection. It will then hide again and start waiting for the controller connection again.

Is that a good idea, or do you have a better one?


And I'm still wondering how to approach the joystick-2-keyboard "converter". Normal application running in background? Another status-menu widget?


It would also be "nice" to notify user, that the device kernel does not support joystick device (if so). But I don't know how to detect that (yet). Do you know?

This is exactly my goal.
N900 connected to SixAxis and large TV, acting as a portable console. :D
