Ubuntu Networking :: The Bluetooth Manager Does Not Detect A Bluetooth Dongle?
The bluetooth manager does not detect a bluetooth dongle .trying to use ndiswrapper to fix.I installed device manager and the results are shown below.i downloaded the windows driver suite. It has 4 .exe self extracting driver archives and a setupconfig.ini. The .ini file is below.I was able to extract one of the 32bit archives on a windows machine and it had about 8 .inf files that are titled weird and would not install properly using ndiswrapper probably because im using the 64-bit architecture. there are 2 64bit .exe's in the driver download, but how can i extract them in ubuntu and do i really need to install all 8 .inf files. also do i actually need to make a .inf file? if so how?

Asus - BT211 mini bluetooth dongle

Code: http:[url].... - windows driver under download section.

Device manager

Model: Unknown model (id =0x3000)
Vendor: atheros Communications, inc[code]....

Fedora :: How To Use Bluetooth Dongle
I had a lot of problems at first working this one out. So I made a program to create the bluetooth com port.

1. Download and install the program sjdsoftbt-tool from my website[url] or directly here *sjdsoftbt-tool*

It was made in gambas 2.0 but it should install the required dependencies automaticly .

2. Follow the instruction on my How to Guide this covers most phones and there pit falls and problems you can have.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't Get Bluetooth USB Dongle To Work
based on the HW compatibility list, I bought a Conrad "Bluetooth Stick Micro" (Order number 97 19 99) => Does someone know, if this is "really" the one mentioned in the compatibility list ? Can I find out, what chip(set) is used ? (I'm somewhat "afraid", that the name might be the same, but the chip(set) changed. No, it is unfortunately not mentioned in the documentation coming with it) Unfortunately I didn't get it to work on Suse 11.2 (64 Bit) so far. This is what I tried: Installed bluetooth packages, based on the information I found.

These are:

root@godot:~ # rpm -qa | grep -i blue


I looked for a bluetooth section in yast2, but couldn't fine one. (I think I saw one in earlier releases...) => Did I miss it ? Do I miss a package ? (I checked all packages containing "yast" for something.) So, with no yast2 module present, how do I do the basic configuration ? The documents I could find all describe how to use the bluetooth connection, if the basic setup suceeded.

General :: Bluetooth USB Dongle - Communication Setup?
I am very new to linux and I have been given a school project that involves getting my windows pc talking to a linux single board computer that I have. It can be found here. [URL]. I have two bluetooth usb dongles, one to plug into my pc and one to plug into my linux board, I know that both work as I have tried talking to them both using my mobile/cell phone. Also when I plug the dongle into my linux board it recognizes something has been plugged in. However I am unsure where to go from here. I have tried "searching" for the device using my windows pc, but it will only find my cell phone and not my linux board. I also tried mounting it similar to how i would mount a usb drive e.g. mount dev/sda etc. How to setup the linux board for bluetooth communications?

Hardware :: Bluetooth Headset - USB Dongle Support For A2DP?
I'm running Slackware with 2.6.26 kernel. I've got bluez-utils,libs version 3.26 (Slackware 12.1 precompiled package), and kdebluetooth. I'm using a Digicom Palladio Usb Bluetooth adapter. In general, bluetooth seems to work; I can send files to my Nokia phone. Now, I've got this Bluetooth stereo headset (brand rather unknown, and I've thrown the package away, I've only got the little user manual, and there is no indication on who built this thing).

This is what I've tried so far:
- turn the headset on and turned pairing mode on;
- kbluetooth -> Configuration -> Input devices (input?) -> Search;
- kbluetooth finds the headset and asks that I insert the pin code; a little star appears next to the name of the headset ("Stereo Headset"), but after a couple of seconds disappears and at the same time I hear a beep coming from the headset (disconnection?). Anyway, just before the beep, noise came from the headset (as if it had turned on), then, after the beep, nothing.
- Important thing: the headset manual says the Usb dongle must support A2DP and AVRCP. I don't know how to find out whether my dongle supports them, anyway, if I execute 'sdptool', in the "Services" section I get: [Code} ....

Does this mean that bluez/my usb dongle doesn't support A2DP? Anyway, I followed the instructions on "Bluez - Trac - AudioDevices" [URL] and added the specified part to .asoundrc. Of cource, even if I tell xine to use "bluetooth" as pcm device, it says the device is unknown.

General :: Bluetooth Dongle Connection - How To Activate Adapter
I've an Acer Aspire One A110 Netbook running Linpus Lite. All seems relatively well however I've plugged in a Bluetooth USB dongle and nothing has happened - oh well, I didn;t expect it to. Of course I'm used to MS Windows OS plug 'n Play and I know this isn't generally how Linpus Lite OS operates but despite looking around I can't find an explanation on how to activate the Bluetooth adapter. There are instructions and demos on how to add a Bluetooth component to the board but I'm not an engineer, neither professional nor hobbyist, so Im not interested in doing that. I've downloaded the Bluetooth zip file from the Acer Spire One support site it has been installed on the Netbook but there still appears to be no Bluetooth connection.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Pair Bluetooth Dongle ?
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....

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Successfully Use Bluetooth Dongle
I recently purchased an inexpensive bluetooth dongle for my laptop running lucid 64-bit. the device, however, doesn't seem to want to work in ubuntu. most functions (everything but turning the device OFF) fail, causing gui windows to hang, and i mostly receive messages relating to the device timing out.

Before you ask, it is not the device: the dongle works flawlessly in windows 7 after being autodetected and autoinstalled. i attempted to boot from the lucid cd, and the problem persisted.

Ubuntu Networking :: Bluetooth Dongle That Works / Compatible
I'm shopping for a Bluetooth dongle and I'd like to find one that "just plain works" with Lucid. I've searched and found a few posts about bluetooth, but nothing encouraging so far. Hopefully someone is using one and can vouch for its compatibility with Lucid.

Hardware :: MSI Bluetooth USB Dongle Connection - Certainly Not Long Enough To Send Or Receive A Single File
Problems with Bluetooth. The dongle appears to be working, but then it craps out on me after only a few minutes!

I'm using the blueman-manager GUI to connect to my cell phone. If I load blueman-manager almost immediately after connecting my dongle, I can use it for a few minutes, but only long enough to add my phone, pair it and mark it as trusted. Certainly not long enough to send or receive a single file, though. Eventually and inevitably, the connection breaks, blueman-manager hangs/freezes up, and I start getting errors in dmesg.

Here's all the relevant diagnostic stuff...




I added the MARK myself to separate where the dmesg output stops immediately after plugging in the dongle from what appears after the connection is broken. It's right when that timeout error happens that the connection severs itself, and the error usually repeats itself several times.

Even if I just connect the dongle and not do anything except wait a few minutes, after a few minutes that timeout error will still happen. I'm running fluxbox and I don't believe I have any automounting programs, so there wouldn't be any interference from something like that.

Ubuntu Networking :: 0a5c:2148 Broadcom Corp - Bluetooth Dongle Not Working ?
Decided to upgrade my usb bluetooth dongle because it is slow, old and bulky. Bought a Konig (broadcom) mini dongle. Ubuntu (natty) shows me a bluetooth icon and appears to be working. But: It doesn't find anything, nor can it be found...



It looks like there is no module loaded for it. Does there need to be?

SUSE :: USB Flash Drive Produces No Output For Dmesg - Hotplug Quit - Bluetooth Dongle
OpenSuSE 11.3/KDE4 32-bit

It's been a while but I just hit a brick wall. Well, this has been building for a week or so, I can't figure out what's causing it. I thought there was a sudden conflich with the bluetooth dongle, since that one piece of hardware is not listed right from boot (sometimes has a dmesg error related to loading the module), but I find now this is not the case. Today I ran the full update to the current kernel hoping to fix the problem, but to no avail (caused some interesting issued with the video (intel 945) which I ironed out). Symptom: With the exception of the bluetooth, all devices hooked up to the USB ports at boot are recognized and usable. No device that I plug in after booting is recognized, period. lsusb output does not change. Plugging in a USB flash drive produces no output for dmesg.

Software :: Auto-connecting The Bluetooth Devices?
I have bluetoothd,hidd,and bluez-simple-agent running. I can manually connect my if I use


"hidd --connect XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX"

However, I cannot get bluetoothd to make any sort of connection automatically. I have hidd running as a server, I see link_key_request(sba=XXXXX,dba=XXXXX) in dmesg when I click the mouse, but I get no connection.

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth Devices Disconnects After Inactivity
My bluetooth devices disconnect after a period of inactivity (not sure exactly how long). They're being connected with:
sudo hidd --connect
And I've made no edits to any bluetooth related system files so it should be default settings throughout. I would like them to stay connected indefinitely and it would be even better if they would stay connected through reboots.

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth Working - Enabled But Not Finding Devices On Scan?
I am using Ubuntu, now installed KDE (kubuntu) and I have Bluetooth working and enabled but for some strange reason the bluetooth scan is not finding any devices in spite of the fact that I have my mobile phone with bluetooth on and discoverable. My laptop is HP Touchsmart tm2 2102tu. Here's output of my hciconfig -a

Neither hcitool scan nor scanning with Gnome or KDE bluetooth settings is working for me.
