I'm trying to play Spider-Man Miles Morales via PlayStation Plus installed in WINE. I have an official DualShock 4 v2. The game doesn't really understand that though, and I have several points in the game where I need to boot into Windows just to use the touchpad for a moment. If I don't use the touchpad, I can't progress. Just the regular sticks and buttons work, and I can use the touchpad as a mouse controller in Linux, but I haven't been able to use it in WINE.

Windows does automatically install drivers and detect it as a game controller. If you press the joypad, button 14 is shown as being pressed. I don't see the touchpad touches themselves in the Game Controllers part of the configuration screen on Windows. I don't know if PlayStation Plus does some sort of direct access and skips the Windows drivers, or if it uses the drivers for the buttons and joysticks as well as the touchpad.

Is there a way to make WINE fully aware of my controller? Maybe even use some sort of passthrough method? I don't know if passthrough or direct USB access would work though since I don't know what PlayStation Plus does.

About

Guidelines

  • /r/Linux_Gaming is for informative and interesting gaming content, news and discussions. It is not (primarily) a tech-support forum.

  • Tech-support requests posted outside the Weekly Tech-Support Thread should be readable by and useful to others. Include relevant details like logs, terminal output, system information. What exactly did you do, and how, and with what version of what? How have you tried to troubleshoot the problem? Vague, low-effort tech-support requests may get removed. This wiki page can help you gather system information.

  • You can now flair your own posts. Please mark your "standalone" tech-support requests as tech support and re-flair them as answered! if an answer has been found (even if it was "can't be done").

  • Respect other users. Heated discussions are fine, unwarranted insults are not. Remember you are talking to another human being.

  • Devs and content producers. If you've ported your game to Linux or created some GNU/Linux gaming related content (reviews, videos, articles) then, so long as you're willing to engage with the community, please post it here. If it's a link post, think about writing a comment to tell us more - the more you engage with us, the more we like it. We all need to support each other to help GNU/Linux gaming grow.

  • Spam will be deleted. This means things like repetitious posting of similar content, low-effort posts/memes and misleading/exaggerated titles on link posts. We know spam when we see it and will delete it.
