I have edited the config-file and rebooted twice (As I tried the bluez and official option) - However w/o success.
My procedure used to be as followed:
#1: Edit recalbox.conf for bluez / official driver
#3: Plug the PS3-Controller when Batocera-Linux is up and the ES-interface is running
#4: All Leds of the PS3 controller are slowly blinkin' - I have waited for ~25 seconds and unplugged it
#5: I have hit the PS-Button: All Leds are blinkin' rapidly fast
#6: The BT Dongle LED used to blink fast as well, however, the led has stopped blinkin' after 30 seconds - The controller leds are still blinking
#7: Tried it again with step 3
I was also in bluetoothctl and tried to set up the controller by hand - however - it was not found by bluetoothctl - The controller model no is: CECHZC2E - Might I have got an unsupported/defect controller? It's workin' like a charm with the USB cable attached - and according to my PS3 it's fully charged.
What a bummer - According to bluetoothctl the device is recognized with the following MAC:
So I issued the command:
Attempting to connect to 60:38:0E:17:70:7C
However - the LEDs are still blinkin' extremely fast and it still doesn't get recognized 😢
I might call it a day and order the BT dongle which you've got 🙂 Thanks for the link/commendation!
