DS4 on Arch Linux
Hi, it took me literally three hours to get to no result. Can't get controller to pair with my manjaro arch Linux box.
Any one was successful?

Many thanks

RE: DS4 on Arch Linux
Do you have CONFIG_INPUT_JOYDEV=m in your kernel config?

I believe I didn't need any other module for this, just plug it in and it magically works.

Ensure you can read device /dev/input/js*, either being in the group or maybe your systemd login session will set this up for you. In my case I didn't want to log out/in after adding myself to groups so I used newgrp and launched ppsspp from the new shell.

Anyway, first step, in dmesg you should see something like:
usb 1-5.1.2: Manufacturer: Sony Interactive Entertainment
input: Sony Interactive Entertainment Wireless Controller as

Second step, when you start ppsspp you should see something like:
