    I’ve got a name brand PS3 Controller (Sony…duhhh), and a bluetooth dongle. I went through the menu system to add the PS3 controller drivers and paired it up with very little issues. jstest shows everything working correctly. I can control the menus from within EmulationStation and even launch an emulated game. But within the games the PS3 is non-responsive…like it doesn’t even see the controller.

    While waiting on the bluetooth dongle to arrive, I just played my games using my PS3 controller…but connected via USB. No issues.

    So if it works while wired to the RPi…then why won’t it work over Bluetooth? I know that someone has had this issue before…care to share?
