I don't understand why a fix replacing a package in extra with an aur package which has an unsolved compile problem (see latest comment in can actually be considered a fix...

There is an issue with this tool as it uses 'hcitool', which is deprecated upstream (, see Note).

Fix: Replace bluez-utils with bluez-utils-compat in depends= section

In the source for 0.5.1 backends/ has three entries for HID_DEVICES However this package, there are only two.

The PKGBUILD is getting 0.5.1 which is the latest version, so why is there a discrepancy?

@Ape, bluez-hcitool as well.

trustin commented on 2017-09-02 06:06

@izz-j You need to install 'bluez'. @Ape, the dependencies could be updated?

As root:
$ systemctl enable ds4drv
works fine but then when you start the service
$ systemctl start ds4drv
I get :
"Failed to enable unit: File bluetooth.service:No such file or directory"

The instructions don't say it directly but

$ sudo systemctl enable ds4drv
$ sudo systemctl start ds4drv

python-evdev 0.6.0 compatibility is fixed with ds4drv 0.5.1.

Until the fix gets pushed into master, and released, the -git pkgbuild works if you use instead chrippa's

@Theredbaron1834, I can confirm this. It seems be caused by python-evdev update 0.6.0-1.
