I have a bit of a frustrating problem and no amount of Google research is helping me. As the title says, I have a Playstation 4 gaming controller that I am 100% is functioning properly, however, when I connect through bluetooth, it doesn't seem to be allowed to be used as a controller.
What I do get, is a solid white bar on the controller, indicating that it has established a connection. GNOME 3.34 knows it's a wireless controller and shows that it's connected, but the controller just doesn't do anything.
To me, it sounds like a permission issue or something just isn't letting the controller communicate wirelessly. I have searched all over and have only found troubleshooting steps for the controller itself. Again, I'm positive the controller is not at fault, as it connects just fine to my Debian 10 laptop running GNOME 3.30. Is it maybe a GNOME issue? I'm not sure, but I figured writing about it so that the problem is out there may help resolve it.
