I recently installed openSuse 11.2 with KDE4.3...When I try to pair my phone, the bluetooth manager finds my phone. However when I try to connect it says "your phone doesnt support input". My phone is set to "discoverable" (ie. visible to all). But, it just wont work.I had it working on previous systems. But not this time.
I recently installed opensuse 11.2 with Kde4.3.I am having trouble with the bluetooth. I'm trying to get kanyremote to work, but i cant pair my phone.I searched google and the only option I see is to downgrade bluetooth.Can anyone help me pair my phone without downgrading my bluetooth packages?
I have laptop with bluetooth and I bought PS3 bluetooth remote. In windows this remote is working with EventGhost and I would like to use it in Fedora as well. This remote has to be paired without a pin code, which is how I paired it in windows.In Fedora, however, there is no such option "no pin" when using a standard way to connect bluetooth device.How can I pair this remote in Fedora?
I have a laptop with no bluetooth on it.So i bought a bluetooth dongle.It works flawlessly under windows but i am having a problem with it under Ubuntu (As well as other Linux distros). As soon as i plug the dongle i see a bluetooth icon in the Notification Area.
When i click on it and choose setup new device....its scans and shows all the bluetooth devices like my Nokia 5800 xpressmusic cell phone but when i try to pair it simply fails....
I have tried all the Pin codes available and even tried the custom pin option but still no success. By the way right now i am using Ubuntu 10.04..i have also tried it with other linux OS but still the problem remains....
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.
I'm using debian lenny (5.0.4) on 3 different laptops, two fresh installs and one was installed with etch and then updated.In the one that has been updated pairing works without any problem, while in both the others it doesn't work. I can see this on syslog when I try pairing from the phone:Jun 15 10:31:02 robertof-lt hcid: io_capa_response sba=00:22:5F:00:C2:1F, dba=C0:38:F9:D3:29:A3)Jun 15 10:31:02 robertof-lt hcid: io_capa_request (sba=00:22:5F:00:C2:1F, dba=C0:38:F9:D3:29:A3)Jun 15 10:31:04 robertof-lt hcid: No agent available for user confirm request
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.
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.
i have three type of linux distributions installed on vmware- centos 5.5 , rhel5, fedora14.i have installed centos 5.5 on a seprate hard disk.i want to use internet on linux using my nokia 2630 cell phone.how to connect my phone through bluetooth to use internet?
when i open up to configure bluetooth it says i don't have any plugins available and when i try to search for appliences from my phone it cant recognise anything. Please help me! I want to transfer mp3 music from my laptop to my phone. I am using Linux Mint 9.
I have a dell precision m4300 laptop with a 360 wireless bluetooth dell adapter On my system there is a debian lenny with kde3 and backported enable(everythings is p to date except bluez-utils and bluetooth holded at version 3.36-3)
Nowadays bluetooth more less works fine, I can send and receive single file to/from my phone (nokia n70)
The hell begin when I try to browse my phone files from konqueror...with bluetooth:/ I can see the list of all the device near me with sdp://[address]/ i can see two icons (obex file transfer & obex object push) but I cant see or access to any file or folder into the phone.
I also try to update my bluez-utils to 4.60-1~bpo50+1 but in this case kbluetooth totally fail and a see the contextual menu of the system tray icon all disaled.
Is there an app out there that will at least mute my speakers or pause my music when I receive a phone call? This would come in handy since I listen to music a bit loud and have a phone that vibrates like a kitten.
So I can send pictures from my phone to my PC, I've bought a Bluetooth USB adapter, just a cheap one.
System>Preferences>Bluetooth without the adapter says 'no adapters are plugged in'. With the adapter in I get a preferences screen to find new devices, so my PC is seeing the Bluetooth adapter. I've then got it to successfully find both my phone and my wife's and entered the provided pin into each phone. My desktop is duly listed as a device on each phone.
However, if I try and send a picture from either of the phones to the PC the phone says it can't see any devices and the sending fails.
Also, how do I send files the other way, from PC to phone? I installed Obex but it simply hung then closed itself.
I am trying to connect my cell phone through a Bluetooth dongle in Ubuntu 8.10 but when I try setting up a new device my cell phone is not seen. I tried reading some guides, I installed everything needed but still it doesn't work, some files are even missing (probably because they guides are for older versions of Ubuntu but i can't find a new guide on it) like.
I tried the following commands: jessica@jessica-desktop:~$ sudo hcitool scanScanning ... 00:16:75:15:14:81 Hill Billy jessica@jessica-desktop:~$ sudo hidd --connect 00:16:75:15:14:81 Can't get device information: Success jessica@jessica-desktop:~$
I guess they work but how come my device is still not seen in the Bluetooth applet? How can I send files? Why can't I connect to the computer using my phone? I don't want to depend on windows for this too.
I have HP mininote 2133 with Suse SLED 10. I am trying to connect internet via bluetooth and a mobile phone. The machine itself does not have bluetooth, but it recognizes the Belkin bluetooth gadget, which I inserted into the USB port. I started the bluetooth with Yast and "Information about the equipment (I don't know what the correct term is in English, because my OS is in Finnish language)" tells that there is Belkin Bluetooth adapter connected.But my mobile phone cannot find my computer (there is nothing wrong with the phone, because it can find other computers!) when I try to pair up the phone and the computer. What should I do to connect?
I have a liveusb running Fedora 11 on my hp laptop. I would like to use my T-Mobile Dash 3G unlimited data connection. I have seen many posts regarding wvdial, modem scripts, etc that are going a little over my head. I was able to connect my phone to the laptop, but when I tried to initiate internet sharing on the phone via Bluetooth PAN, nothing happened on the computer. I was connected but not able to do anything.
I saw some developer in a blog mention that he had put Bluetooth PAN support in Fedora 12. Is this not available in F11? Should I try moving to a F12 liveusb for this?
Has anybody had success getting a Tmobile 3G to work with F11?
I would rather use the USB connection so I could charge simulteously, but this looks a lot tricker.

I have recently installed open suse 11.2 on my hp hdx18 laptop replacing windows 7. trying to use my phone as a bluetooth access point so i can connect to the internet when im out and about and there isnt a bt openzone network around. my phone is a sony ericsson w910i. i can connect to my phone via blue tooth and use it as a remote control and browse, send and receive files. but cant figure out how to use it as an access point to the internet. win7 had an option to connect via access point giving me instant internet access over the vodafone mobile phone network, but i cant find an option like that in open suse, if there even is one.
There is a feature in MS Windows OS that allows users to play the songs on their mobile on the computer via bluetooth, i.e., the users can use the computer speakers as a bluetooth headset. Are there any ways or any software to do the same in GNU/Linux?
I can send files to my bluetooth mobile phone, but when sending a file from the phone to the PC, the phone issues an error message "Sending failed", and I can not figure out, why. /var/log/messages does not contain any related entries. Do you have any idea where to look for the problem? I am using KDE. I found many complaints about the same problem, but they all date from 2007-2008, so I guess this is not the same problem.
I am having an problem with bluetooth. Computer seems to find my mobile phone, I can send files from PC to my phone, but not vice versa. As I try to send, it pops "Failed" (in phone) and nothing happens. Kubuntu 10.04 Windows mobile 6 (HTC p3450).
I have a samsung messager touch R631 with 3G capability and I am trying to connect my laptop to the internet through it via bluetooth. Everything worked when I had the MAC OSx on my laptop, and after I switched to ubuntu 10.04LTS (32 bit) I cannot get it to work again. I did some searching and checked a few things out, but Everything I've tried with the BlueZ isn't working. It shows I'm connected, but it just doesn't work...is there any way to get it to work or another program or something I need? these are the 2 pages I refferenced...[url] [url]
I use fedora12-Gnome as my major desktop OS. Every basic need was fulfilled , until I tried Fedora12 KDE and now Fedora13 KDE. The problem is with Bluetooth connectivity to my cell phone device. It connects to the cell phone and set trusted but I can't seem to see any option of "Browse files on Device". Does that mean in KDE I actually can not browse my Bluetooth connected devices?
I am working on Ubuntu-10.4 and I want to transfer 'hello.txt' file form my computer to mobile phone (Nokia 7210).When I run command, My mobile ask for accept the connection from ubuntu (device name connected to ubuntu). I accept the connection, Then I got the error log given above.
I'm using it on a small IBM machine in my closed ( ) which is my multimedia center, file sharing, router, http server & others. To escape the cable paradox, lately I came up with an idea to stream music from my mobile phone (LG GD880) via bluetooth to my SUSE box (which has it's audio output linked to my HIFI Sound system). This means pairing the devices and of course set the SUSE box as reciever. I found how to accomplish this here and here .
The problem: While trying to complete the above tutorial(s), I found that in /etc/bluetooth there is no ' audio.conf ' file, only ' main.conf '. If I insert the option: Enable=Source in main.conf, it has no effect what so ever. This means that org.bluez.AudioSource will not show up in D-Feet, thus I cannot take the next steps. What can I do? Is there another way to accomplish the audio streaming?
