Fedora :: How To Pair Bluetooth Device Without Pin Code?
Jul 12, 2010
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 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 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 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 a simple Bluetooth device I would like to pair with my computer. I detect it in the BlueTooth New Device Setup (from the GNOME pannel), detected as "Unknown", I enter its pairing code (1234) and click on "forward". But then it asks me to enter a code on the BlueTooth device... I don't have anything to enter any code on this device. I would like to simply connect to it! From other OS, I manage to connect to the device as it's not asking to write any pair code in the bluetooth device. The PIN code 1234 is enough to make the connection.
When a bluetooth controller I have connects I'd like a program launched (qjoypad) so that I can use it has a mouse. The controller has to be on before launching qjoypad otherwise qjoypad will not work.
So I was wondering if there is a way to launch a script when my controller connects, and then possibly when it disconnects to launch another script killing the qjoypad process.
EDIT: I created a script that checks if /dev/input/js0 exists, if it does then qjoypad is created
Code: #!/bin/bash while true; do if [ -c "/dev/input/js0" ]; then qjoypad
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 have recently installed fedora 15, I'm trying to connect my mobile phone to my laptop through bluetooth, when I did setup new device it is just showing device address and (instead of name), and the forward button is not enabled..FYI - I have started and enabled the bluetooth services using systemctl
I have a raspberry running volumio which is based on debian jessie, I added it bluetooth support with pulseauadio which works fine.
Now I'd like automating the process a bit because having to connect to the pi to manage the connexion with bluetoothctl is not really convenient.
I would like to add a pin code to the pi to manage the connexion, It was possible with bluetooth-agent but the command seems to have disappeared on jessie and I didn't find any indication about pin code in bluetooth config files.
I have installed bluez libs,utils and all the requirements for bluetooth communication. And i am able to scan other bluetooth devices around. Will somebody please suggest me on how to start writing code for file transfer in bluetooth. Or can I get any packages online to do that for me. I am using RHEL5 and x86_32.
I've been digging around for a while to try and come up with some solutions, and I'm finally caving and asking for help.I have two PCIe nvidia cards, each with one DVI and two displayport outputs. I know it's a gigantic mess right now as I've been experimenting a lot. If someone can suggest a basic skeleton xorg.conf for one x-screen on GPU-0, one display on GPU-1 cloned onto ANOTHER display on GPU-1 (preferably with a different frequency), it would be much appreciated.
I've been having trouble in a couple of distros (including when I had windows installed..) getting my bluetooth working,
I have a dell vostro 1720, and the specs from dell insist there's a bluetooth adapter installed, and the laptop even has a little light which (ostensibly) indicates data being transmitted via bt... and, it's enabled in the bios.
though, dmesg | grep bluetooth
gives no results.
I've read comments on dell bluetooth for other dists, but can't seem to find any deb-specific recommendations.
So, how do i confirm that this laptop does *in deed* have a bluetooth adapter.. and... if there is one... how do let the kernel know about it?
I'm struggling for pairing my laptop with my phone to dial up internet. On slack 13 I configured hcid.conf but on the new 13.1 with the new demon bluetoothd I don't know how to pair on command line.Documentation is not a lot, or I'm not able to find it.
I'm using fedora 13 x86_64 on amd machine. I use usb bluetooth dongle. The bluetooth service doesn't start at all. When I click on bluetooth icon-preferences-turn bluetooth on, after some time it says, bluetooth is disabled. What should I do to enable bluetooth?
I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 and bluetooth turn/off is not possible. However, with 2.6.37 kernel it is possible. Now i have gathered whole info about the device(mac adress, usb port etc) from 2.6.37 and what i need is to somehow use those info in kernel 2.6.38 so that bluetooth works.
lsusb in 2.6.37 (while bt is on)

I am developing an application which communicates with a bluetooth device.I do not want the user to pair or unpair the device using the Bluetooth applet or command line, but I want to automate the pairing process through my application. The application will scan and find the bluetooth devices in the proximity of the computer, and automatically pair the required device without any user input.Where should I look for the relevant APIs?
I just bought a Bluetooth dongle for my laptop with fedora on it and cannot get the Bluetooth service to start. Tried to do the same on my imac running Fedora and the same thing happened, it said service refreshing and never did.
