Works for me from GNOME settings.

Make sure you paired it. Press and hold both PS and Create buttons. It start flicking blue light, meaning it's discoverable and ready to be paired.

I am on 5.12 and I can't seem to connect it via bluetooth. It works via USB but that is quite inconvenient. How do you connect it?

Is this AUR needed after updating kernel to 5.12?

No, if you are running 5.12 you should uninstall this package as it's not needed anymore.

How do I disable touchpad and gyro? I want Steam to handle them.

Thx for your fast reply!

I just reinstalled 5.11.6 and tested Stardew Valley and Hades (with Proton) with the USB-C cable attached and everything works fine. Furthermore bluetooth (the controller and a BT mouse) works fine too head scratch. I'm a little stumped because yesterday I tried it several times (always with a reboot after installing 5.11.5 and 5.11.6) with these games. I tried repairing the controller, but this didn't work either. And today it does... I checked /var/log/pacman.log and there're just some haskell-* packages I didn't have when I had the problem.

Please consider this NOT reproducible!

Not sure, I have not had this issue myself on those versions, but I have only tried to use the DualSense with USB as some point release of Linux 5.10 (or was it 5.11?) broke support for my Bluetooth dongle :(

Do you have this issue over USB too? If not, try and see what happens with other Bluetooth devices if you have any.

Since upgrading to Linux 5.11.5 and 5.11.6 I experience strong input lag and sticky input. After downgrading to 5.11.4 everything works fine. Any other info I could/should provide?
