I finally got my PS3 controllers to pair today via bluetooth, after modifying the code per brian9640’s instructions in this post: http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=78&t=16702&start=25
However, now I’ve hit a separate issue. It appears I need to re-pair the controllers (using sixpair) after a cold boot. Obviously this is a hassle because it requires re-attaching the controllers via USB, and a reboot or two.
Does anyone know why this is happening? How can I make the pairing “stick”?

Could you please find a new post for it? I can not find that topic. Thanks!
But I am guessing it does not read it during first run. So it needs to be edited so that it runs right when all the GUI loads.gaucheParticipant02/25/2014 at 14:03Post count: 17
Actually, I was playing around with this more today and it’s more sporadic than I thought. Sometimes it works, but mostly it doesn’t. I noticed some USB errors in /var/log/messages and did some googling. It looks like this might be a kernel bug, fixed in 3.3 (see https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/5/27/86). Lot’s of people with the same issue.
I have no idea when Raspbian or other debian-based distros will be moving to 3.3, but I guess my only real option is to wait and see. I don’t particularly want to attempt compiling my own kernel.
