ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 5949
Rosa Detects Wii Remotes incorrectly in Rosa 2014.1
Last modified: 2015-07-17 10:39:30 MSD
The udev rules for Wii Remotes makes Wii remotes appear to be a mixture of Keyboard and Game pad, with no use of the IR Sensor or Accellerometers. This is due to bad udev rules. Please add working udev rules to permit Wiimotes to use their IR Sensor as an Analogue Joypad Axis. Addditional Information is
As it is for most of the hardware-related bugs, please upload the hardware info and the logs from that system to us using hw-probe. Better - when that Wii remote is used there.
Besides the incorrect udev rules, there may be other problems there, so it is better to see them as early as possible.
The IR Sensor and Accellerometers do show up in dmesg as event devices, I'll have to setup a test to show dmesg output.

With it paired like this, I can use the arrow keys and A button as a Space Bar. Face butons act as Joypad buttons.
Driver version is 2.1.0.
Joystick (Nintendo Wii Remote) has 0 axes ()
and 7 buttons (BtnX, BtnY, ?, (null), (null), Btn1, Btn2).
Testing ... (interrupt to exit)
JSTest says this device has no Axes. But it should have two Analogue Axes for Accellerometers and IR Sensors.
http://hw.rosalinux.ru/index.php?probe=5a40921970 Here is the results of your Probe request. Ignore what it says about Rosa 2012.1, its an upgrade system and they sometimes report wrong version numbers.
http://hw.rosalinux.ru/index.php?probe=0942ac94b9 I gave you one without the Wiimote Paired by mistake. Here is the real Probe results with the Wiimote Paired.
