@weirddan455 thanks, fixed now. i never would have noticed because i'm not very frugal with my dependencies :3

libusb-compat should be a full runtime dependency, not just a buildtime one. Without it, running the sixpair command fails with the following error:

sixpair: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This has the wrong checksum for sixpair.c, and also it is missing a dependency on bluez-utils. It fails to run without it.

sixpair.c has a new checksum from the website. Not sure if the version has changed. 0a9f03cd08f1483341f60c9b7cf5204c is the new checksum for sixpair.c. No other md5s changed.

@ultraviolet: I fixed my issue. I used sixpair to change the bluetooth master, then I ran $ hcidump -t -X and located the bluetooth address of the controller. I then used bluetoothctl to trust the bluetooth address of the device when it was connecting. I let it stop trying to connect, once I pressed the PS button again it asked to pair and synced.

@ultraviolet : Oh no, I just used sixpair to change the bluetooth master to my PC, then I attempted to connect the controller via bluetooth (in gnome-bluetooth and bluetoothctl). The device showed up but would disconnect rather quickly. In bluetoothctl, I manually trusted the device (w/o pin pairing) and the device still disconnected. I figured since bluez and the kernel has upstream sixaxis support, it would be more plug and play.

have you thoroughly read/followed the source link? i've never had any issues with bluetooth-only mode on my system.

I was wondering how to use this a sixaxis controller solely over bluetooth. The controller keeps connecting/disconnecting for me.

Can you also add a dependency on bluez-utils. It fails and complains about hcitool being missing.

thank you! fixed now.
