PS3 Wireless controllers

Unread postby NewAgeRetro » Thu Jun 28, 2018 2:09 am

Is anyone else having trouble pairing Bluetooth controllers on the OGST image?

I installed blueman and have the Bluetooth Manager under System => Preferences, when I select Search and plug in my PS3 controller it shows up in Bluetooth Devices with the MAC address but I can not get it to actually connect...

I gotta be doing something wrong.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Code: Select all
apt-get install sixad

after that you should restart the ODROID as it starts a couple of services.
Then you can just plugin your PS3 controller and it should automatically pair it with the bluetooth dongle.

If you unplug it again and press the PS button the controller should work.
Doesn't work all the time but most of the time. If it does not work, try siaxd --start it should start the service in foreground and you should see if there's an issue.

Please be careful with Kodi though, as there is an issues with PS3 controllers and Kodi. I haven't had time to fix this yet (there is only a workaround).

Is there another step if the controllers are generic clones?

I greatly appreciate your time.

clones can be a little bit tricky.
You can try installing sixad-gasia which is for clones, but I haven't tried this package as I only have a genuine PS3 Dualshock 3 controller.

sixad is all that needs to be installed.
Please Note: sixad disables standard bluetooth functionality in favor of PS3 support.

Not pre-installed, but you can simply install blueman if you want.

Not by default, as the XU3/XU4 has no bluetooth capabilities on it's own. But as said above it can be easily installed.
Let me know if you have any issue and I can try help you figure it out.
