    Hey all

    Wonder if you can help (again!) I am trying to get an official Sony PS3 controller to install

    Rasp Pi; Model 2b Retro Image 3.01

    SO i followed Floobs video verbatim, and as usually the steps were simple and made sense, I looked for an update, ensured I had Bluetooth utils, installed the PS3 controller via the ‘set up’. The lights flashed then 1 came on (akin to it pairing with a device such as the Playstation)

    However on entering Emulation Station no GamePad was detected. I did some snooping… Via hciConfig i found the USB “down” .. the js file appears to be EMPTY jstest jsO will not work and when i check the values in ps3controller/ sudo ./sixpair i get nothing like Foobs does on his video 7.15 here

    It seems something has gone south, probably simple (I hope) when i do a lsUsb all are listed and the BlueTooth is brand new so should be compatible.

    I include an image of the code in case anyone can advise or has solved similar.

    Have you updated your setup script and tried the latest ps3 Bluetooth pairing script from the setup script?
