  • Tried to pair, no luck

  • administrators

    @Paholainen It's running correctly, so not sure why the official ps3 controller won't pair. Mine pairs fine. I just connect USB, disconnect and press button. I'm out of ideas, sorry.

  • @BuZz I even tried 3 different cables and on two separate Raspberries. When I plug it in nothing happens with the lights on the controller. I´ll just have to use my 2,4ghz dongle gamepad instead

    the controller doesn't even work when connected via usb ? That's the main problem then as that's the point where the controller is "told" to connect to the raspberry pi bluetooth when disconnected. It should work out of the box over usb.

    In case something is wrong with your install, you should download a fresh images, then update it before doing anything else via retropie-setup, then try. If you get the same problem, I suspect it's a hardware issue or something with your controller that makes it incompatible.

  • @BuZz Downloaded fresh image, and did the steps. still same issue. Strange that none of the two ps3 controllers worked via cable or BT, on two different Raspberries. The controllers are confirmed working on a PS3

  • @BuZz Thanks for trying to get it fixed.
