I didn’t know whether to add to one of the other threads or create this new one as I have slightly different configuration etc. I have a Pi 2 and RetroPie 3.5 and updated setup script at the time of this post.
I connected my knock-off PS3 controller with the USB cable and went to controller configuration just to find out what make it was detected as, it said ‘Gasia’. I selected and installed the appropriate drivers from the menu (I selected ‘Gasia only’). I then went to the pairing screen and it kept locking up and not doing anything. I tried uninstalling/re-installing drivers, resetting the pad (by pressing the little button on the back) but nothing would work. I then found in another one of the many PS3 controller threads this command line :-
sudo apt-get install pi-bluetooth
My controller now works without the USB cable. I haven’t had a good check yet but I did reset and it still pairs correctly. Other peoples threads have mainly noted that they are on Pi 3’s but this problem is still current for Pi 2 also. I hope these drivers can be included in the RetroPie setup and the bugs found and squished because i’m starting to get a list of things I have to do/download manually after installing. It just gets confusing.
