PS3 Controller registered but not useable
I searched for a similar problem, but it looks like I´m the first one with this.
I followed the setup instructions for (sixaxis) PS3-Controllers in the documentation (https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/PS3-Controller) and it seemed to work.
If I check the connection in the Bluetooth section, both controllers appear as registered devices.
I can´t use the controllers via Bluetooth, they´re only working with a plugged in USB-cable.
When I try to configure the input via Bluetooth, my PS-Controllers do not appear as detected gamepad and they don´t get an ID if I press the PS-button.
Did I miss any steps or has someone any idea what could be the problem?
@mKs You may have bumped into a recent problem with the latest Linux Kernel from Raspbian, which rendered some (if not all) Bluetooth controllers unable to connect.
Check this topic for a solution to this problem. You can check if you're experiencing the same problem by exiting Emulationstation and checking your kernel version:

If you also have
Linux 4.19.42-v7+ armv7l GNU/Linuxshown on the 2nd line, then you're likely affected by this issue.
Thank you @mitu , but the problem is still present.
Ich will put my experience to the other topic.
