    Hey There.

    I’m building a retro console from my old broken NES to a new one with help from the raspberry pi2. I have found a bluetooth dongle in my car that works perfectly with retropie and pairing a dualshock 3 controller is easy and everything works.

    Now the issue I have encountered is when I don’t connect my usb keyboard in the bluetooth dongle won’t start. (doesn’t blink)

    Is a keyboard needed to boot the system or do I need to change a setting?
    can anybody help me?



    Weird.. after a few reboots it now detects the dongle again and I can pair as soon as the splash screen from emulationstation comes up.. Maybe it’s the dongle that sometimes does and sometimes doesnt work?
