I can't seem to get the my official PS DualShock3 to connect, so I hope I can get some pointers here.

I followed the github instructions to the letter (manual pairing - adding the MAC address to the DS3, etc.), but the DualShock3 just doesn't want to connect - the 4 leds on the DS3 stay blinking, nothing more.

Using a Wii controller works just fine, so I know that the UniJoysticle2 works fine.

In the Unijoysticle2 trace I see that the DS3 connection is complete (after pressing the PS button on the DS3), yet the 4 leds of the DS3 stay blinking and I can't control anything on my C64.

What I see in the logs (red part):

Hi Bart,

DS3 support is disabled by default.

You have to edit this file:

and enable DS3 from there.
Then re-compile (make clean && make -j) and flash the firmware
