I am unsure the onboard bluetooth chip can be used. I never heard about anyone using it with GIMX. This does not mean it can't be done, but you are probably not going the easiest way. You'll better get a dongle with a CSR8510 chip, as suggested on the wiki:

I plugged CSR8510.
Removed previous pairings (rm .gimx-launcher/PS3Pairings)
Created new pairing using bluetooth dongle.
When I click Start after several seconds it fails and appears log.txt window and message box:
Pairing Requested
Device 'raspberrypi #1' has requested a pairing. Do you accepd the request?
Cancel OK

On Ok appears new message box:
Pairing Requested
Pairing successful - creating connection...

And this message box stacked

May be this log will help:
When I click Start in gimx then in bluetoothctl console appears
[CHG] Device B8:27:EB:6C:33:C6 Connected: yes
and after several seconds appears
[CHG] Device B8:27:EB:6C:33:C6 Connected: no

I think the bluetooth service is interfering. It probably sets the master address of your DS3 when you connect it, preventing GIMX to read the PS3 address.

Try disabling the bluetooth service:

Code: Select all

sudo systemctl stop bluetooth
sudo systemctl disable bluetooth
And make sure to pair again the DS3 with your PS3 before attempting a new GIMX pairing.
