PS3 controller issues
SireGo last edited by
Good Morning Gamers,
I am fairly new to the retropie scene and I am having issues keeping my PS3 controllers connected via bluetooth. I am working with Retropie version 4.5.1 on a Raspberry Pi 3 B+. The issue I am running into is that after I connect the controller via bluetooth the select buttons no longer which makes it impossible for me to get back to that main menu. Another issue I am running into is when connected via USB the controller vibrates non-stop and the four lights blink slowly. I have tried installing the PS3 drivers as well as the sixaxis and enabling third party controllers but as of right now nothing works. I have also purchased a dongle just in case which doesn't seem to work either. This is also happening with a Sony PS3 controller.
I am also attaching a picture of the controller that I have.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.![alt text]( image url)
sixaxisare the ones you need to install, but not at the same time. Remove both and try with the
sixaxisdriver only - both for the PS3 and the clone (for which you might have to enable 3rd party clone support in the driver).
I don't think the dongle will help, the Bluetooth connection should be ok on the 3B+ model.
How did you install your RetroPie system ?
