If you have ever tried to utilize a PlayStation controller with the Raspberry Pi, you may have found it’s not very simple to do. The Raspberry Pi PlayStation controller guide will walk you through the process of setting up and connecting both PlayStation3 controllers and PlayStation4 controllers.
For PlayStation3 (PS3) controllers,I show you how to install the Six-pair Software and utilize it to set up your PS3 controller so it can connect to whatever Bluetooth device you are using on your Raspberry Pi.

In this PS4 controller tutorial we walk you through the process of pairing it with the Raspberry Pi’s Bluetooth and also offer alternative solutions if your controller doesn’t work with the standard Bluetooth stack. You can also set up Xbox controllers on the Raspberry Pi, as well as several other types of game controllers.

Setting up controllers is the perfect way to have your Pi ready to play some games. You might also be interested in using the controllers in other Raspberry Pi projects that make use of a gamepad.

In this Raspberry Pi Wiimote controllers guide, we will walk you through the process of setting up a Wiimote on your Raspberry Pi and show you how to setup both cwiid and wminput.
Utilizing Wiimote controllers on the Raspberry Pi can be painful to deal with due to its handling of the Bluetooth stack. While they run over standard Bluetooth, their actual functionality is not picked up as a conventional joystick device like Xbox controllers and PlayStation controllers.

Instead to support the full functionality of Wiimote controllers in a way that most applications can support we must utilize two pieces of software.

These being cwiid and wminput. One acts as a library that interprets the Wiimotes actions into joystick actions, the other being somewhat of a driver that creates an input device that applications can utilize easily.

For a while I have been looking into a compact Video Monitor to use with a Raspberry or Banana PI. Whilst in a opportunity shop looking for a couple of 12V, 2A+ plus powersupply, I discovered what appeared to be a brand new Dell E196FPf 19″ LCD Computer Monitor for a mere $10. I couldn’t resist. Although it is a 19″ Monitor, the display isn’t widescreen and measures 410mm x 340mm. This results in a reasonably compact footprint.
