    Hey all,

    Trying to get my bluetooth controller to work properly with RetroPie, everything works so far except for a usser friendly connection on startup.

    I have to manually run the following to get the controller connected:

    Put controller in pairing mode, holding the pair button for 5 secconds or so. and then run :

    hidd –connect xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

    I have the feeling hidd is an old method of pairing devices, just cant find my awnser in the massive ammount of ps3 controller questions 🙂

    So i’m basicly looking for a daemon that is waiting for a single press of the pair button to connect. That keeps listening because my controller disconnects after a certain period of inactivity 🙂

    Thanks all and sorry if the question has been asked a trillion times… i couldnt find it:)



    I’m having the same issue with a 8bitdo controller.

    @retrolium did you find a solution?
