    Hi everyone, first post.

    So I received my Raspberry Pi 2 yesterday (first time user) and installed Retropie without trouble.
    Today I decided to try out my PS3 Wireless controller and after following this excellent tutorial ( everything worked perfectly.

    Trouble is, after rebooting I can’t seem get a connection. I’m not sure at what point I should press the PS button or if I have to connect it by wire first to force it to make a connection but I am unable to get it to work.

    The controller still works if I connect it with the usb cable but I have no idea how to get the wireless up and running again.

    Is there a simple thing I’m missing ? I’m sorry but i’m an utter layman at these kinds of things.

    Thanks in advance.




    Okay thanks I’ll try and get back to you.



    There was a problem related to the bluetooth address setting in /opt/retropie/supplementary/ps3controller

    this solved it :

    I’ll try the process again, seems my bluetooth was not communicating with my ps3 controller anymore.
