    How do you use the Playstation 3 Controller as a Mouse or Game Controller for a computer, more specifically, in Ubuntu?
    I would like it to be used over Bluetooth, but wired is just as fine.

    Not sure about Ubuntu (never really tried to do it on that), but for windows I just found the drivers online then used Joy2key (i think) to assign controls to the ps3 remote.

    There's a thing called DS3tool. The version for linux is kind of hard to manage since there's no GUI, all commands

    Look in Chaz's thread, I posted a response there about this doing some quick research. For now, look into the "PlayDeb" repository and the two input mapping programs they have there.
