Playstation3 controller causes random mouse movements and the button mapping of the controller has changed in fishsteerings.
The new Ubuntu kernel introduces a bug in the driver of the Sony Playstation3 controller. We cannot fix this bug, but we provided a workaround to be able to use the controller again.
First, disable the controller to affect the mouse. Open a new terminal by pressing ctr + alt + t and type in:
xinput set-prop "Sony PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller" "Device Enabled" 0
This will stop the controller affecting the mouse, but only until you reboot your machine or until you unplug the controller from the machine. So you have to this whenever you reboot your machine.
Next change the button mapping of the controller in fishsteering. Launch fishsteering with the fishsteering icon. Here you have to choose "/dev/input/js1" as Input device and as the mapping file you choose "joystick_mapping_ps3_kernelbug.yaml". You only have to do this once.
