As difficult as 2020 was, one of the many open source achievements came to us during it.
The driver supports PS5 controllers via USB and Bluetooth
Namely, Sony took over the “official” maintenance of its HID driver and on the eve of Christmas, to the great surprise, announced the official PlayStation 5 DualSense open-source controller driver for Linux. The PlayStation 5 DualSense controller driver was originally released back in December, just days before Christmas and is completely open source. The driver supports PS5 controllers via USB and Bluetooth and supports almost all functions, including accessories such as LEDs, motion sensors, battery reporting, light-bar control, rumble, and the like. Sony has committed to maintaining this open-source driver and they have continued to upgrade it to the main Linux kernel.
Now that the Linux 5.12 kernel merge window is expected to open next week, the HID-PlayStation driver has been queued in HID-next since yesterday. Hid-playstation the driver in its current form amounts to just over 1,500 lines of new code and gets new PlayStation 5 DualSense controllers that work well for Linux games.
