Hello everyone,

I installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my MacBook in VMWare and I had suspected the Kinect to fail, but not ps3joy. Sixpair seems to pair my controller fine, but the controller does not seem to connect to either ps3joy.py or ps3joy_node.py. The controller just keeps flashing the leds and the python script is not saying anything at all. According to Ubuntu the Bluetooth is found and turned on, but perhaps it's not 100% working?

Any tips are appreciated.

Do you have any other bluetooth devices you could try? That might narrow down where the problem is happening.

Have you figured this out? I'm having a similar issue. It pairs ok with sixpair, but then when I push the pair button on the controller my mac pops up a pairing password dialog box, it doesn't go all the way through to Fusion.

I stopped trying soon after, I'm attempting to install ROS directly on OSX now.
