I am having problems setting up a PS3 controller in RetroPie. I have followed the instructions up to the point where you do ./sixpair after this the controller seems to connect the disconnect. I have checked this by using the sixad -s command as the controller is Detected but then it drops and I get the bad sixaxis buffer (out of battery?) error.
I had this issue when you use the PS3 to charge the controller, it re-pairs the controller to the PS3 and you have to run six pair again.
My issue at the moment is the pie doesn’t start my blue tooth controller every time, like the third start up it tries to start the controller….
i was able to pair mine the first time and it worked all night. today I boot up the pi and PS3 controller no longer connecting. says BT is down. did you find a way to fix this? i’ve only charged my PS3 controller (real ps3 controller) to a computer to charge. Now i just get blinking LEDs
