I’m trying to use a 8bitdo Controller SFC30 on Retropie 3, I read many posts on forums, and tried several things but i still don’t manage to get it to work. Here is my problem.
I followed the Bluetoothctl Wiki for Bluez V5 (the Retropie tutorial writes about Bluez V4, with Wheezy not Jessie :s)
Which told me to:
power on scan on agent on devices (to get the mac address of my device) trust *Mac_address_of_my_controller* pair *Mac_address_of_my_controller* connect *Mac_address_of_my_controller*
I managed to make it work once, but now when i try to connect i always get
[bluetooth]# connect my:controller:mac:address Attempting to connect to my:my:controller:mac:address [CHG] Device my:controller:mac:address Connected: yes Failed to connect: org.bluez.Error.Failed [CHG] Device my:controller:mac:address Connected: no
I don’t know why it worked once and it’s not working anymore, the pairing is already done, i get an error “AlreadyExists” when i try to pair again.
I tried to look for error by using :
root@retropie:~# systemctl status bluetooth Failed to get D-Bus connection: Unknown error -1 root@retropie:~# systemctl --user status Failed to get D-Bus connection: Unknown error -1
Without any success :(
If you have any idea I would be grateful !
P.S. I would also like to automatically launch the synchro by connecting automatically the blueetooh controller when i boot my Raspberry, maybe something inside rc.local ?, the Retropie tutorial is for Bluez V4, not working the same way with Bluez v5 !, I tried what was advised on the wiki to auto. launch this, but it’s not doing it :s)teirichParticipant01/16/2016 at 01:10Post count: 2

I think i’ve seen this error before. Try doing all the commands as root. in the terminal, type: sudo su
Let me know how you get on/FloobMember01/24/2016 at 20:02Post count: 1629
If you are trying to get your bluetooth controller working with RetroPie, please check the Wiki. The process there will auto reconnect on startup.
