No chance to control the RETRO PIE? No PS3 Controller, no Keyboard...

  • Hi!

    I have got many problems to connect my Controller or to just control the whole RETROPI.

    I installed RetroPie manually from the git clone --depth=1 source.

    Then the RetroPie starts nicely and the WELCOME Screen shoes up. NO GAMEPADS CONNECTED. HOLD A BUTTON... ect. PRESS F4 TO QUIT AT ANY TIME.

    I try to connect my PS3 Sixaxis Controller (also installed the Driver from the RETROPPIE_SETUP)... Plug the PS3 Controller with an USB Cable into the PI (Console says its connected "Isusb"!!) but he doesn't show anything on the Screen. There is still NO GAMEPADS CONNECTED. I also can't connect a Keyboard with USB (Works fine on Console!).

    Has anyone a hint? Its so frustrating!
