Impossible to connect BT Gamepad (RPi3)
José Manuel Nieto Sánchez
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.
@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.
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.
