Well thanks for the help, I have fixed it now. The problem was me with the input.conf. DOH.
Well once again Thanks

Whoops. Forgot to check the forum for a while...

hidd has been deprecated by bluez. You can still use it, but it'll probably go away at some point in the future.
Glad you all were able to figure out the input.conf / keymap.xml mess without me. (Thanks pumkinut!)
@Asure: There may be a way to get it to work; it's hard to say. I can try to modify the source to try the device. I'll need the class ID, device ID, product ID of the device. (Look in previous posts to find out how to get it.) I'll then build a custom package for you. (If you're building the source yourself, add it to the fake_hid_table in fakehid.c)

sorry for the up but I can't figure out my problem
I can't remap my ps3 remote button...
I don't understand whre to put my .xml file
really I didn't do it :|
This took me AGES to figure out.... - limeysod - 2010-04-04 10:57
So the answer for me to getting my Blu-Link remote (PS3 BD Remote functionality + IR) paired was to pair using blueman and to work across reboots, it was apparently very important to set my Broadcom Bluetooth dongle 'Link Mode' to MASTER.
This means that the remote could initiate 'connect' and the dongle would accept. I also made the Bluetooth dongle 'always discoverable'.
I hope this helps someone else!!
P.S. A lot of assumptions there, based on the volumes of documentation about Bluetooth connectivity on Linux (kidding).

I've been trying to setup my PS3 remote with XBMC as well, but apparently it's not as easy as the how-to's suggest.
I'm running XBMCLive (9.11) and try to set the thing up with the guide on the wiki, but also tried to get it to work with a script mentioned somewhere here in the forums (clean install and then run some python scripts from a 'bash gui'). Unfortunately I somehow cannot get it to work. Been reading almost all of this topic, but no help .
After fiddling around with packages I get up to the point where it should be listed in /proc/bus/input/device (which it doesn't). It does appear in /usr/share/doc/bluez/examples/list-device, so I assume the pairing went fine (which is also suggested by the logs of bluetoothd.
Is there a definitive how-to for XBMCLive users? Or is there more information on how to debug this?
I tried using the suggested blueman package, which simply wouldn't run (giving errors saying that there's already an agent running). Frankly I don't want to run a full desktop environment to get a remote working.

Can anyone tell me for the love of god how to manually remove a device? I'm getting tired of my own ps3_pair bluetooth script...

Anybody got kitlaan's patched packages that work on ubuntu 10.04?
- TREX6662k5 - 2010-05-02 15:44
The patches are included in bluez now. No patching is required.
This is stated in the wiki.
Its too easy now. I've finally dumped lirc and bdremoted since upgrading to 10.04.
troubles with Lucid Lynx - hotdogger - 2010-05-02 16:39
Hi everyone, I'm a long time user of xbmc and have never had any problems that weren't caused by my own stupidity.
That being said, I have recently updated my xbmc box and installed Ubuntu Lucid. I have bluez 4.63 installed and using the ps3pair script my remote is paired. The Remote connects via any button press, and the center buttons as well as return and eject are working, but the remote will not disconnect on timeout, and I cannot get any other buttons to work.
Initially I had simply reused my old input.conf file from Ubuntu Karmic, and I have tried using the example from the Wiki. Neither of these give me any success, does any one have any ideas as to what I could be doing wrong, or what I should be doing to troubleshoot?
- TREX6662k5 - 2010-05-02 17:51
Yeah, the remote doesn't time out here either but all my buttons work. You may have changed your keymapping in xbmc?
