I have an IPEGA PG-9025 bluetooth controller and I'm able to connect it to my Ubuntu 15.04 without problems.

It's added as a joystick (js) with all correct data and receiving input, but it stops sending events in a few seconds after connected. It's still listed, but it won't change input states as I press buttons.

I also remember using this controller model successfully using this same notebook, but it was on an earlier Ubuntu version. (13.XX?)

Can someone help me figure why is this happening?

All above I did only using the program Blueman to connect the controller. After I used BlueDevil from Kde, it suddenly works!

It's connected as a Joystick(js), so I have to use xboxdrv for it to work on most games and emulators, as seen here: Using IPEGA bluetooth gamepad with Steam @ Linux
