Usually, people don't use License keys and they face the bugs and error during working. As explain they need to use these keys so they work on this version and other related versions as well. If you have any guide must share.

@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.

bluerider commented on 2014-03-04 03:11

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.
