I ran into issues trying to pair a PS3 dual shock controller with a Raspberry Pi to be used for training an autonomous mobile robot (e.g. Donkey) running on ROS. Note that I am using Ubuntu Mate as the OS as opposed to Raspbian, the de-facto OS for the Raspberry Pi.
First try the ROS recommended method.
If this does not work try the following:
Start with the PS3 controller disconnected. If you see the PS3 Controller listed as a device remove the device first using the remove command, otherwise you can skip that step.
$ surferta@surfertas: sudo bash $ root@surfertas:~# bluetoothctl $ [NEW] Controller B8:27:EB:05:90:2E surfertas [default] $ [NEW] Device 28:A1:83:4B:3A:30 PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller $ [PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller]# remove 28:A1:83:4B:3A:30 $ [bluetooth]# scan on
Connect PS3 controller to the Raspberry Pi.
$ [PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller]# power on $ [bluetooth]# devices
Disconnect the PS3 controller from the Raspberry Pi.
$ [bluetooth]# agent on $ [bluetooth]# trust 28:A1:83:4B:3A:30
