Dual Shock 4 Controllers

So now that Steam controllers work good, How about some love for the Playstation 4 controllers. There is a bug in the kernel that prevents the use of them using bluetooth. It has been fixed in the 4.5 kernel, but it’s not backported.

https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=107081

So, has anyone got the DS4 controllers work in bluetooth using userspace drivers? JW, while I am waiting for either a kernel upgrade or a patch.

Pulling out my long micro usb cord for gaming. LOL

You might submit a request to the openSUSE bugzilla for a backport of the
fix.
