    I’m trying to usb my DS4 controller wirelessly but I have some problems.

    What I have done :
    – PS3 drivers installation
    – DS4 Controller connected with a USB cable
    – A lsusb command shows my BT dongle and my DS4 Controller
    – Test with a jstest command is OK

    But when I execute sixpair the following message is displayed :
    no controller found on usb busses

    I don’t understand, my DS4 is connected with a USB cable and, a priori, recognized.

    Why sixpair can’t see it ?



    sixpair won’t work with ds4 (sixpair = sixaxis pair, ds4 is not a sixaxis), but you actually don’t need sixpair to pair your ds4 with your pi, the following guide should work on any distro with blueZ >= 5.14 and kernel >= 3.15 :



    Thanks, I installed blueZ 5.20 but I still have a problem, my BT controller is up but bluetoothctl can’t see it…

    you need to enable pscan for the bluetooth adapter to actually search for any bluetooth devices.
