I'm trying to use two gamepads over bluetooth. They are the same gamepad (8Bitdo SN30 under Xinput mode). Pairing one works fine, but pairing a second never works, it will connect, but it will stay at "Not Set Up" or just give me the option to disconnect.

Using the gamepads over USB 3 works fine and they both get correctly assigned as Player 1 and Player 2 (shown from the light on the controller).

Does anyone know of a way I can fix this or a way I can troubleshoot this to give more information? Thank you.

Trying with bluez version 4.48 and 4.50 has the same issues.

I'm using Pop!_OS with Linux Kernel 4.18. I had the same issue with Linux Mint 19. This on a HP Envy x360 13.3 Ryzen 2500u laptop.
