All this does is make the lights blink faster. If I reset it will I be able to connect it back to the PS3 afterwards? If so how? Yes, by following the same procedure while it is attached to the PS3. My Mac still doesn't detect the PS3 controller.

I am using OS X Mavericks. Can someone please help.
I, too, have zero luck connecting my PS3 controller. VERY odd. Also running Yosemite. In new versions of OS X like What to do to KEEP it connected? Is is possible that this is the issue you were having? Is it possible to use multiple wireless PS3 controllers simultaneously on a Mac game?
Specifically 4 players at once for a game like Broforce? Or at least 2? And how woyld this be done set up? If anyone is trying this on Yosemite, it looks like Apple accidentally or on purpose? There are a bunch of system logs which point to this when the controller is trying to connect to Yosemite. What do you mean there is no support for it? I hope this helps you…. I have 2 ps3 controllers.
One factory original for 1st gen ps3. And one aftermarket ps3 controller.
Tried syncing both with mid charge levels. Both via usb and wirelessly. I also have a bluetooth keyboard and mouse which work fine and show up on the list.
When plugged in via usb the controller charges. The light pattern only shows the charging sequence and the ps3 button is unresponsive. It does seem at this point that apple might have blocked compatibility…. Retort to my last post. Then go to bluetooth menu at the top right of osx desktop. It does show the controller. Hey im trying to connect to a late macbook pro running on OS X I tried this but it does not work on CS: GO though. Any one got any answers to fix this, and yes I enabled controllers on CS: However, it is still in the and automatically loads it in the Xbox Xinput Format so I barely now any controls.

Mavericks and Yosemite are notorious for being a hassle to connect any bluetooth device, especially the PS3 controller. Perhaps you are the problem, and you need to read the article and follow the instructions before complaining in the comments, because it works for everyone except for you. That means user error, by you. Even though pressing the Playstation button on the controller in step 5 caused no change, that step is necessary for this 6th step to work. Tried to remove the profile and pair again.see url
When I plug in the controller, the 4 lights come on and all four blink slowly. I have a PS3 controller and would to to be able to use it on my macbook pro s. I have a Macbook pro and a macbook pro, one running Yosemite and the other running El Capitan. A PS3 controller does not work on either, either wired or via bluetooth.
I think, as others have proposed, that Apple broke the driver compatibility, and they never fixed it. Someone in another thread reddit? I can get a controller to appear in the bluetooth preferences in either laptop, and I can get it to allegedly pair by pressing the PS button, but no functionality works for the controller while paired and it never appears as a viable controller under OpenEmu while connected via bluetooth. Unfortunately, it just appears dead as well while connected wired.
I can use the PS3 and PS4 controllers this way.

In some other games the controller is identified immediately as a game controller, it kind of depends on the apps and games. I want to be able to use the PS3 controller as a mouse to open files and close windows etc. Any ideas how to configure? You can only use it in apps that have been optimized to use a game controller.
