  • Hi to all.
    I finally have a ps3 gamepad working bluetooth, but if i turn off the system... i have to go again to retrosetup, and pair, etc. i mean just with press PS button dont get pair. (so i need to allways get working a keyboard...)
    What can i do?

    It could be that sixad isn't running. You could try this quickly to see if it fixes the problem.

    From the wiki entry:
    For bluetooth pairing to persist between reboots you need to make sure sixad is executed during startup. Exit EmulationStation and and edit rc.local.

    sudo nano /etc/rc.local
    Add sixad --start & before the line exit 0 and save (ctrl-x then y)
