Unrecognized PS3 controller

I've got latest Retropie running on Raspberry 3. It has been installed on top of OSMC using retrosmc script.
I own a genuine red PS3 controller but can't have it recognized by Retropie, neither with original USB cable nor onboard bluetooth. I tried both GUI and CLI. The 4 red LED flash forever.
I have a MX3 2.4 Ghz (radio) wireless keyboard with a dongle which is recognized.
bluetoothctl and sixad didn't help. I can't even get my PS3 controller mac address.
I'm confused about concurrent bluetooth support for OSMC and Retropie (should it be on? can I connect more one than device?). However it doesn't explain why the controller doesn't work when plugged with USB cable.
Can anyone help me troubleshoot this issue?
@mrbloo Your Linux install (OSMC) doesn't seem to contain the PS3 drivers. What's the kernel version on your OSMC ? What's the output of
dmesg | tailafter you plug in your controller ?
