This working ps3 six-axis / wine 2.14 setup, for which I’m sure there are far better.

So far so good… 

…for wine-2.14 (Staging), WINEARCH=win64 and a little patient gaming on this Ubuntu 17.04 rig.

Using  xboxdrv (Note: That ubuntu-xboxdrv setup did not work).

THESE PHREAKING STEPS

Soft link xinput_3.dll from an imported 64bit  x360ce windows setup to the target exe directory.

winecfg the xinput_3.dll  library to native, builtin.

Run the following command prior to running wine application:

sudo xboxdrv –silent –detach-kernel-driver

Profit.

A pain in the arse but is working nicely for Dark Souls 2. Scholars.

Patiently waiting for that elusive native support.
