Hi falk-t-j.

I'm aware you no longer support QtSixA, since now Linux have native
support for PS3 & PS4 controllers. However, I have five reasons why I
think you should resume the support:

1) Native support doesn't work properly yet:
Even though it should work out of the box, it doesn't, or at least I haven't be 
able to do it. When I have "luck", I can connect one controller. When I don't 
(most of the time) I can't connect anything. In addition, it's happened years 
since Linux "included" native support.

2) QtSixA still work on newer distros:
Using the repository for Ubuntu 15.04 (the last supported version of Ubuntu) I 
had been able to install and use QtSixA under Ubuntu 15.10/16.04 and Linux Mint 
18. The only major issue I have found is when sixad runs at the boot, it 
doesn't work and I have to stop it and re-start it. So, with only enabling the 
repos for newer versions, it would be a great improvement.

3) I believe only small modifications are required:
Since QtSixA still works, it would require small modifications IMO, to just fix 
the start at boot or to disable that feature.

4) The community still wants to use QtSixA:
As you can see in ubuntuforums and in the following askubuntu questions, the 
community still tries to install and use QtSixA:

5) I could help you:
If you want me to, I could give you a hand with the repository compilation, or 
even with the code
