If you want to force a connection you can try this script – make it executable and put it in /etc/init.d/

#!/bin/bash
sudo bluetoothctl << EOF
power on
connect [MAC Address]
exit
EOF

For others reading this, dont do this as the retropie bluetooth menu covers most situations doing this on its own.

Floob,

I tried this script and it does not connect when switching between modes. It will only connect the last MAC that was paired through the config tool.

Here’s the script.

I placed it in /etc/init.d

And then ran sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/xxxxx.sh

No go
