Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Pair Bluetooth Dongle ?

Jul 3, 2010

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

Aug 14, 2010

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 :: The Bluetooth Manager Does Not Detect A Bluetooth Dongle?

Nov 2, 2010

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?

Ubuntu Networking :: Bluetooth Dongle That Works / Compatible

Aug 20, 2010

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.

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 :: 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.

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.

Fedora :: How To Use Bluetooth Dongle

May 4, 2009

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

May 26, 2010

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
bluez-gnome-1.8-9.4.x86_64
kdebluetooth4-0.3-9.1.x86_64
bluez-4.56-1.1.1.x86_64

[code]...

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?

Feb 24, 2010

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?

Debian Hardware :: Bluetooth Dongle - Change Mac Address

Feb 4, 2016

I purchased 2 CSR V4.0 dongles which work fine, one in Deb8 and one in a Win7 laptop. The only problem is they both have the same mac address so my Samsung Tabs get confused. I have thoroughly researched how to change these but most of the suggestions want a dev reference such as wlano or eth0 which USB dongles do not have a dev id.

The only alternative is to use bdaddr which comes with the bluez package but it must be compiled with the --enable-tools option.

When I try to compile I get the error "error:D-Bus library is required". When I check the config.log it suggests:

"Package dbus-1 was not found in the pkg-config search path. Perhaps you should add the directory containing `dbus-1.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable".

Dbus is installed on my system but I could not find dbus-1.pc. The only reference was the directory "/usr/share/dbus-1" so I added it to my $PATH variable. This did work.

Hardware :: Bluetooth Headset - USB Dongle Support For A2DP?

Feb 23, 2009

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

Aug 1, 2010

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.

Hardware :: MSI Bluetooth USB Dongle Connection - Certainly Not Long Enough To Send Or Receive A Single File

May 10, 2011

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...

Code:

Code:

Code:

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.

SUSE :: USB Flash Drive Produces No Output For Dmesg - Hotplug Quit - Bluetooth Dongle

Feb 8, 2011

OpenSuSE 11.3/KDE4 32-bit
Kernel 2.6.34.7-0.7-desktop

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.
