    Hi!

    I’ve just received my RPi3 and in order to try more and more game/emulator i tried to install my 8Bitdo NES30 Pro controller with the Bluetooth wiki but no luck!

    I can pair my controller, and even configure it, but if restart the whole system i need to do everything from start again…

    My controller works perfectly with my other RPi2 and retropie (but the 3.3 version)

    It seems that the bluetooth doesn’t start at all on boot.

    Any idea?

    Thanks a lot!

    I had the same issue but doing the following fixed it for me:

    sudo apt-get install pi-bluetooth

    I already tried this on a fresh install and it didn’t work 🙁

    I’ve done this to connect on boot. I’ll update it when I find an easier way.
