Most of the guides out there are for old versions of bluez (3.x). I have
applied the patch from Fedora and made a debdiff against the version in
oneiric. With this patch applied, all I need to do is plug the
controller in via USB once for the pairing, then unplug and use the PS
button to connect. Note this is gamepad only, no rumble or accelerometer
support. I haven't reviewed the guts of the patch (I assume the Fedora
devs have); I'm only responsible for the packaging.

My main reference was http://www.netswarm.net/sixaxis-support/

Note there's a brainstorm for this:

** Patch added: "Patch to enable USB pairing + gamepad over bluetooth."
