According to the hid-PlayStation driver update submitted by Sony to Linux, users will soon receive official support for the Sony PS4 DualShock handle in Linux version 6.2.
At the end of 2020, Sony released the official Linux driver “hid-playstation” for the PS5 DualSense handle. Since then, many users have been looking forward to the official expansion to support more handles, and now this update has finally arrived. This support has been merged into HID’s for-next branch and will be introduced later with the Linux 6.2 kernel.
The new driver brings USB, Bluetooth connection, touchpad, battery, vibration, accelerometer, gyroscope, LED brightness, light bar, adapter, etc. support to the Sony PS4 handle, which is relatively complete.
Other Linux developers have previously launched hid-sony drivers for Sony PS4 controllers, and this solution can still be used at present, but when official support is launched, everyone can compare which is better and make a decision. own choice.
