Impossible to connect BT Gamepad (RPi3)



  • I'm using the latest stable version (4.0.2) and when trying to pair my BT Gamepad from the menu, it immediately shows the following message:

    "CANNOT FIND CONTROLLER"

    The strange thing is that it seems that no actual scanning of BT devices is performed. I'm using the built-in Bluetooth controller of the Raspberry Pi 3 B+

    I had no problems in the past with my Gamepad and Recalbox. I remember I have paired in previous versions.

    What's wrong?

    @josé-manuel-nieto-sánchez the internal bluetooth of the rpi3 is only available since version 4.1, which isn't currently available for download (but soon!). Until 4.0.2 you must have had a bluetooth dongle for anything to pair.



  • Hi,

    I have te same problem.

    I just installed recallbox 4.0.1 on my RPi3 B.

    The dongle I use is Asus USB-BT400 Bluetooth 4.0 which is describe as not working out of the box in the wiki. I'd like to make it work, any good advice on how I should do/start ?

    My controller is a Sixaxis wireless ps3 controller.



  • Erratum : Actually it works 'out of the box' !!!

    Rebooting the RPi may be useful ;)

    Should I update the wiki ?



  • @paradadf About the 4.1 version, it was available to download some months ago right ? Why is it not available anymore ?

    @totocrenn please, do a forum search and you will find the answer. It has been discussed just too many times that I don't want to keep talking about.
