Debian :: How To Pair Bluetooth Keyboard Via Command Line On Jessie

Mar 27, 2015

I installed the Open Source Media Center (OSMC) on my Raspberry Pi 2. It's based on Debian Jessie. I bought a Blueooth Keyboard (Keysonic KSK-3211) and an USB-Bluetooth adapter (CSL Bluetooth Stick Nano). And now I am looking for a way to pair the keyboard with the raspberry via command line.

I'm new to all this bluetooth stuff in debian. It's the first time I try to install it. As far as I've understood I need an agent that is started with the pairing PIN. Then I type this PIN at the keyboard and that's it. Am I right?

The problem is, that every agent I've found in howtos or descriptions like bluez-simple-agent or bluetooth-agent (like described here [URL] ....) is not installed (and as far as I know can't be installed) under Jessie.

The bluetooth adapter is recognized

Code: Select allosmc@osmc:~$ hcitool dev
Devices:
        hci0    00:1A:7D:DA:71:0C
the keyboard is found
Code: Select allosmc@osmc:~$ hcitool scan
Scanning ...
        00:12:A1:70:42:28       Bluetooth Keyboard

And I can ping the keyboard

Code: Select allosmc@osmc:~$ sudo l2ping 00:12:A1:70:42:28
Ping: 00:12:A1:70:42:28 from 00:1A:7D:DA:71:0C (data size 44) ...
0 bytes from 00:12:A1:70:42:28 id 0 time 14.82ms
0 bytes from 00:12:A1:70:42:28 id 1 time 9.91ms
0 bytes from 00:12:A1:70:42:28 id 2 time 32.62ms
0 bytes from 00:12:A1:70:42:28 id 3 time 28.81ms
^C4 sent, 4 received, 0% loss

So everything seems to be ok ... but I can't find the command for pairing the keyboard. Looks like something changed in Jessie so that the old tutorials are outdated.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Can't Get Bluetooth Keyboard To Pair In Maverick?

Oct 13, 2010

I think my computer must be haunted, as I've so far failed at 3 different ways of installing Maverick on my 2007 aluminium imac! I've written off using a VM, and I'm currently stuck trying to make a dual boot setup.

So I've followed the guide at [URL].. and got as far as rebooting with the CD in, and selecting Ubuntu, but then when everything loads I'm left at the screen where I can select try or install, with no way of selecting either as my mouse (apple bluetooth mighty mouse) and keyboard (apple bluetooth wireless aluminium keyboard) don't seem to be connected. I've got past this point by hitting random keys after booting and selecting the CD - this takes me into a more basic looking menu where the keyboard does still work and I can select install, try etc.

So I can get as far as selecting try, and get a working Ubuntu desktop. However, when the desktop loads, my keyboard and mouse are again not working. By connecting a USB keyboard and mouse, I'm able to get my mouse to pair, using the bluetooth menu and going through the setup. However, I'm stuck trying to get my keyboard to pair.

Going into set up new device and searching initially shows up my keyboard, then it disappears. If I wait it randomly comes back and disappears again. If I click on next whilst it is available, I can get as far as putting in a pin, but when I press enter it says Failed..

Sorry for the rambling post - I basically have 2 questions: 1- Is it expected that bluetooth keyboards and mice won't work during the installation menus? Half my problem is that I don't know what should be working and when (should I have to boot into the trial installation and setup the keyboard and mouse, or should it be set up automatically?).

2- Has anyone else seen the same problem with the apple wireless keyboard failing to pair? I've searched the forums and google, and found lots of people with problems with bluetooth keyboards, but none which seem to match what I'm seeing. I don't know if there's any point in pressing on with the installation using the USB keyboard and mouse in the hope that things will work in the full install, or if they don't work in the trial install then thats my lot.

Debian Hardware :: Failure To Pair Bluetooth Mouse In Squeeze

May 9, 2011

I recently upgraded this machine from Ubuntu Maverick 10.10 to Debian Squeeze, x86_64, by wiping the root partition (I kept my backup and my home partitions). Everything has gone OK except this: for whatever reason I cannot pair my Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 with this machine any longer. In bluetooth-applet I can see the mouse when I go to pair it with the machine, but it simply times out and the pairing fails.

The target mouse definitely used to work in Ubuntu, so I doubt it's a problem in the physical layer. I tried another Bluetooth mouse (a Rocketfish/BestBuy POS), and it doesn't pair either. The Microsoft mouse I would like to use pairs just fine with my Debian squeeze laptop, but they're not using identical Bluetooth adapters as far as I can tell. lsusb reports that I've got a Broadcom BCM2210 in my workstation (the subject of this post), and lsusb on my laptop reports some kind of Broadcom Bluetooth adapter, but doesn't report its chipset.I'd really like to stay on squeeze if possible, but my googling for this has only led me to old documentation, or stuff that applies to wheezy or sid.

Debian Configuration :: Jessie Upgrade Ssh Command Line Reboot

Nov 13, 2015

I've upgraded a server on our LAN from fully functioning Wheezy to Jessie. All seems fine except remote administering using Putty from my windows workstation when issuing reboot from command line, it goes down and reboots but stops at login prompt asking for username and password and does not come back on the LAN network. This server does not normally have a monitor or keyboard so my ability to remote admin this server in effect is disabled.

If I log on, it will come back on the LAN network. I've checked the logs but can't see any errors. Is it in the configuration of Jessie somewhere or perhaps a Grub issue. I have 5 other production Wheezy servers that I intend to update to Jessie once I understand how to deal with this problem.

Debian Installation :: Bluetooth Not Working On Jessie

How to get Toshiba Satellite's bluetooth to work. Here is output that I think may be useful.... but I could be wrong. Pretty much everything I have found is outdated, has dead links, or didn't work.

So far, I've learned (at least from what I've understood) it has to do with kernel drivers/modules not working. I'm on Jessie right now since my graphics driver didn't work on the stable kernel.

Debian :: Bluetooth Headphones In Jessie 8.0 As Output Device

Mar 24, 2015

After a lot of messing around and research, I figured out how to actually get my bluetooth headphones to connect and stay connected. Although once I shut them off, remove the device and re-add it using Blueman.

Right now, `pavucontrol` shows "Headphones (unplugged)" and there is no sound coming out of the speakers. But there is no sound coming out of the headphones either. They are set to the fallback. I've opened `alsamixer` and made sure everything was turned up. Still, no sound.

Since `bt-audio` isn't on Jessie, I don't know what I should do. It seems like this may be the missing step but I am unsure.

Debian Installation :: Custom Keyboard Layout On Jessie

May 23, 2015

I was using a custom layout for my keyboard as I've a UK laptop but still use french accents sometimes. After the update from Wheezy to Jessie my configs disappeared so I have put them back:

- Defining my layout here: /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/gb
- Adding here: /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.xml and here /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.xml in the gb configItem

Code: Select all       <variant>
          <configItem>
            <name>accentsFR</name>
            <description>English (UK with french accents)</description>
          </configItem>
        </variant>

- Adding the declaration of the layout here /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.lst and here /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.lst

Code: Select all  accentsFR       gb: English (UK with french accents)

So everything looks alright, if I go to System Tools -> Preferences -> Settings -> Keyboard -> Input Source my layout is well selected and I can even see the correct layout by clicking on the keyboard icon (cf my snapshot)

Here is the snapshot of the keyboard input source settings: [URL]....

Debian :: Bluetooth Keyboard Reconnect

Jun 1, 2015

On my Raspberry (I know but I could not get any response in raspberry-forums) running raspian I have a problem with a bluetooth-keyboard.

It has bluez 4.99-2 installed and I was able to pair the keyboard and make it trusted and when I run "bluez-test-input connect <address>" I can use it as an input device, but the problem is that when the keyboard goes into a standby-mode after some inactivity the connection is lost and not reestablished. To make it work again I have to run the bluez-test-input command again.

Now when I use the keyboard on my Android-device it also goes into standby but as soon as I start to type again it automatically reestablishes the connection - this is what I would like to achieve on the Rasperry.

My fundamental problem is that I don't know anything about bluetooth really...

I assume that on Android the keyboard initiates a connection when it comes back from sleep but on Raspbian the connection is initiated from the Pi and when the connection is lost the keyboard may try to reconnect but maybe there is no "bluetooth-server" on the Pi to accept the connection but that is just guesswork from someone that really has no clue...

Debian Hardware :: Bluetooth Keyboard - Logitech Edge?

Jun 1, 2011

Used to be it worked fine natively in 'direct' mode. I didn't need to do any bluetooth setup, I just booted and it worked in BIOS and in Debian. Then one day after a dist-upgrade it quit. I fussed with it for two days, finally installing the Bluez software and trying to make it work as a true bluetooth keyboard/mouse. That's how it's been for six months.

[Code]...

It will not hardware pair once X is started. I've tried it with the bluetooth service started and stopped. Something is preventing it from pairing.

Ubuntu :: Disabling Keyboard Repeat From The Command-line

Apr 11, 2010

Some Flash games don't work very well on Linux because when you hold down a key (such as one of the cursor keys) the Flash player sends the game multiple KeyDown and KeyUp events, leaving the game unable to tell the difference between a user holding a key or a user tapping a key quickly. (On other platforms it seems that typematic repeat generates multiple KeyDown events but not KeyUp events.)

Anyway, to work around this problem, I go to System->Preferences->Keyboard and disable "Key presses repeat when key is held down" when I want to play a Flash game, then put it back afterwards. I do this often enough that I'd like to set up some shortcut keys to change the setting. I figured out the following commands to turn it off and on again:

gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/repeat --type bool false
gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/repeat --type bool true

My problem is that when I have tried entering these on the command-line (in a gnome-terminal), X-windows seems to get confused and behaves as though I'm holding down the enter key. It doesn't stop if I press enter again. I tried pressing ctrl-alt-f1 to switch to a text console and it worked fine, but when I pressed ctrl-alt-f7 to go back to X it still behaved as though I was holding down enter. I had to press ctrl-alt-backspace to reset X before it would return to normal. I *think* it happens in particular when changing the setting from true to false. I'm running Karmic Koala with all the updates.

Debian Hardware :: Bluetooth Keyboard Disable On Lock Keys

May 6, 2015

I've got myself a a Filco Majestouch Convertible 2 which is a USB/bluetooth keyboard.

When I use it in USB mode it works perfectly. I would like to use it in bluetooth mode and I've found that it has problems. When I hit either Numlock or Capslock it stops responding.

I'm running Debian Testing and it was last updated a few days ago (02/05/2015). I've tested the keyboard using Ubuntu 14.04 live cd and it worked flawlessly even hitting Numlock & Capslock didn't stop it.

If I run btmon to monitor the keyboard it shows that after I've hit capslock or numlock it still sends signals to the computer. So there is information being sent to the computer but these characters do not make themselves to my application. I'm just testing with a terminal window.

Here is the output from btmon whilst the keyboard is connected and working:

Hitting the 'a' character
a> ACL Data RX: Handle 35 flags 0x02 dlen 14 [hci0] 16.769645
Channel: 65 len 10 [PSM 19 mode 0] {chan 1}
a1 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ..........

Debian :: Run Script / Command Before Shutdown / Reboot In Jessie

Feb 20, 2016

How to run a script/command before shutdown/reboot in Debian Jessie.

I created a script myshutdown.sh in /etc/init.d/ to shutdown rTorrent if the reboot or shutdown now -h command was executed.

#!/bin/bash
#rTorrent Shutdown Script
echo "Shutting down rTorrent!"
kill -2 `pidof rtorrent`

I set the file as executable.
sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/myshutdown.sh

I inserted a symlink in the rc0.d directory with the process order K04.
sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/myshutdown.sh /etc/rc0.d/K04myshutdown.sh

I also inserted a symlink in the rc6.d directory with the process order K04.
sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/myshutdown.sh /etc/rc6.d/K04myshutdown.sh

Apparently rc0.d is for shutdown and rc6.d if for reboot

After reboot it appears that rtorrent does not run (I cannot connect to rtorrent via rutorrent) but really what is going on. I am trying to do this because rtorrent does a hash check on all files if it is not shutdown properly. I just want it to shutdown automatically and safely, before the system shuts down.

Debian :: Make A Boot RAID0 LVM On A Pair Of SSDs

Debian :: Installing Command Line Debian Squeeze System On Eee PC 701

May 29, 2011

I have been trying to install a command line Debian Squeeze system on n Eee PC 701., but have run into a number of problems:

1) All install info I can find assumes that the person wants to install a GUI system of some sort.
2) The Eee PC has a unique 2 MB. partition that needs to be preserved, so no guided install.
3) The Eee PC has an SSD instead of an HD. Most postings I have seen recommend an install without a swap partition, but the install (both live and text) seems to choke and despite a fresh formatting of the existing partition, claims to be overwriting existing files.
4) I can understand from the wiki that the Eee PC wireless driver (Atheros) should be included in Squeeze, but when the wireless connection and password is added, the installer claims that the password is not correct, despite me having checked it a number of times.

I hope someone can help me out. I just want to use the Eee PC for low resource stuff done on the cli like using a text based web browser to access the net through a wireless router and to hook it up to an external USB HD and to my stereo, to play my music collection.

Debian :: How To Use The Terminal Command Line?

Apr 28, 2010

direct me to a good beginner's guide to Debian? Or explain some things briefly. Where can I learn how to use the Terminal Command Line? How do you add programs to Debian and what all is supported? What are packages in Debian and what can they do? Installing programs is different as expected. I tried installing Firefox, I downloaded it and extracted it into my home directory. I can run it with the Terminal Command: ~/firefox/firefox [When in the home directory] and it works. Is that how it is intended to work? Just random thing there. I guess in a sense, I just really want to learn about every aspect of Debian Linux in a user-friendly type environment.
