Slackware :: 13.1 - Unable To Configure Bluetooth / Pairing Fails

Jun 23, 2010

I can't configure Bluetooth in Slackware 13.1. It basically works. I can scan my mobile phone:
$ hcitool scan
Scanning ...
BA:BE:DE:AD:AB:ED Nokia 6300

But when I try other commands, mobile phone asks me about passcode. Because I don't know it pairing fails:
$ gammu 6300 --identify
Error opening device. Unknown, busy or no permissions.

On the other hand when I try to pair computer using mobile phone it doesn't find any device.
Pair new device
Searching for devices
No devices found

In Slackware 13.0 to configure Bluetooth it was enough to edit /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf file. In Slackware 13.1 there is no such file. I tried to use blueman but it offers first and foremost a lot of error messages. In despair I even started KDE and tried Bluetooth Manager. It attempts to run for a dozen or so of second and finally fails. I did full installation of Slackware 13.1 and I use generic SMP kernel.

Aug 6, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Pairing Bluetooth Device Without Pairing Code?

Nov 8, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth Headset Pairing Succesful, But Can't Use It?

Jan 18, 2011

I have a bluetooth headset that I hope I can get to work with Ubuntu 10.10 so that I can use it with Skype.I am using these instructions to get it to work. However, there are some differences between my experience and what I expect from the instructions, ultimately leading to some errors.First, I should mention that according to Blueman device manager, it would seem I have successfully paired my device. It has a MAC address. I have attached a screen shot of the interface:It sure looks like the device is recognized by my system. However, when I get to step 5, the MAC address of the one device I see is not the same as the one in the interface above:

$ hcitool scan

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Bluetooth Keyboard Auto-Pairing?

Feb 24, 2010

I've got a Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Keyboard 7000 that worked fine under Ubuntu 9. The GUI discovers my mouse fine, and also appears to connect to the keyboard, but the keyboard does not type when paired through the GUI. When I pair using hidd (either --search or --connect), the keyboard pairs and works fine, however when I cycle power on the keyboard, it will not auto-reconnect, and I get the following error message associated with it (see attached image):

Grant access to '00001124-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb'Device 'Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Keyboard 7000' (00:12:5A:A1:5A:8D) wants access to the service '00001124-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb'. If i grant access, it does nothing, and will simply request it again when a key is typed. how to make the bluetooth service automatically pair (either through config files, or better yet, through the GUI?)

Programming :: Automating Bluetooth Device Pairing

Aug 11, 2009

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?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Bluetooth Phones Not Pairing Up Correctly?

May 27, 2010

The PIN validation screen is giving me some trouble. I am trying to pair an LG Rumor Touch and the PIN pops up and matches and the phone is happy to accept the pairing so when I click the PIN matches button on the Bluetooth Remote Device Wizard it will not close. It shows a spinny clocky but just sits there until I cancel. The device manager shows a greyed out light but it lists the device. The tray icon shows device, but gives No supported services found on the menu entry. Dolphin shows device but when I click it to browse it loads to an empty folder. The Device Wizard behaves this way for other phones also, but I was able to get some services running if I ignored it and let it sit there. If I canceled the process it messed up the services.

Debian Hardware :: Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Mouse System Hang When Pairing

Aug 1, 2015

Just picked up a Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Mouse.Whenever I try to pair it, my system hangs and I have to hard power it down. The mouse is Bluetooth 4.0, but my Bluetooth connectivity is provided by my Intel Wireless 3160 card which does support Bluetooth 4.0.I'm using Blueman as a front end, and one other thing of note is that it shows as "Unknown" after a scan.If I need to return it, I need to return it, but it seems like a good mouse and I'd like to keep it if I can make it work.

I've took this out of syslog:

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth Not Working Obex Fails?

Nov 28, 2010

I am leaving my bluetooth MAC out. I can't connect to my phone with bluetooth anymore! obex doesn't work and even when it pairs, it just crashes.Using nautilus I get:

Could not display "obex://[xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx]".
Error: Connection to the device lost
Please select another viewer and try again.
Using the Bluetooth gnome applet:

I select "Browse Files On Device", select the phone once paired, and then nothing happens. I know that it is paired because I can push contact info to the computer. Unfortunately photos and such require I browse the device. This had previously worked on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS before I upgraded to 10.04.

Debian :: Pulse Audio Fails After Bluetooth Installation

Apr 24, 2016

I get an error saying:

Code: Select allConnection to Pulse Audio failed.

In this case this is likely because Pulse_Server in the environment/X11 Root Window Properties or default-server in client.conf is misconfigured. This situation can also arise when Pulse Audio crashed and left stale details in the Root X11 window. If this is the case then Pulse Audio should autospawn again, or if this not cofigured you should run start-pulseaudio-x11 manually.

I tried reinstalling pavucontrol and pulse audio, but I still get the error. I tried removing bluetooth as well and that doesn't fix the issue.

Ubuntu Networking :: Bluetooth Keyboard Fails To Survive A Reboot?

Aug 18, 2011

I have successfully managed to connect a Razer Orochi bluetooth mouse with no issues. This also connects automatically when i start up the machine.

I also have a Logitech MX5000 keyboard that i can connect but it never survives the reboot. I have to manually connect it each time.

The only difference i can see between the two is the keyboard asks for a passkey whereas the mouse doesnt.

Ubuntu 11.04 32bit.

General :: Configure System To Act As A Bluetooth RFCOMM SPP Server?

May 18, 2010

I'm writing a phone app for Android that connects to a bluetooth RFCOMM device in my car. My phone app talks AT commands with it. For development work, I often need to communicate with the device to try different commands and things.

My neighbors are starting to think I'm weird because I sit in my car for hours on end with my laptop screen shining on my face, typing away like a script kiddie.

I'd much rather configure one of my many Linux servers to act as a bluetooth RFCOMM device and allow me to connect to it (indoors, while I sit on my couch).

I imagine I have to start with something like
sdptool add SP

But then what?

I'm perfectly happy writing a perl app to handle the I/O, but I just don't know how to make the bluez stack accept connections and subsequently pipe that stream to a perl app.

Ubuntu :: Multimedia Center Based On XBMC Live - Cannot Configure Bluetooth?

Apr 6, 2011

I assembled a small multimedia center based on XBMC Live (Ubuntu). And cannot configure bluetooth. In older versions of bluez was hcid.conf file, through which I can set options iscan, pscan and lm (link mode). In new versions of bluez 4.xx instead of this file is used main.conf and these parameters there is not provided. How apply these settings to the bluetooth adapter at system startup and when I connect the adapter to the usb port? In general, the system behaves is not clear. Sometimes the adapter after the system is turned on, and sometimes it turns off.

Slackware :: Pedro Mendes Re:pdfedit - "checking For Docbook Xsl... Configure: Error: Unable To Find Docbook.xsl Stylesheet"

Jul 30, 2010

I'm running Slack 13.1 [32 bit] Re: pdfedit from SlackBuilds 13.1. I've installed qt3 per the dependencies w/installpkg. I've pointed pdfedit.SlackBuilds to where qt3 is and it's found fine. The problem arises when the build can't find docbook stylesheets. "checking for docbook xsl... configure: error: unable to find docbook.xsl stylesheet"

I've installed docbook.xsl where it can be found which is in the same folder qt3 support is found and verified my system can find it there,, which it does. I still get the can't find stylesheet error. Is this a glitch or am I overlooking something somewhere along the line?

Slackware :: 13.37 - How To Get Bluetooth And Blueman Working

Slackware :: Bluetooth Adapter Recommendations

Oct 13, 2010

I am looking for advice and recommendations for USB Bluetooth Adapters. My primary use will be using a Wii controller/remote with XBMC (compiled with 'cwiid' support).Secondary use is general data transfer; other peripherals keyboard/mouse etc.But more than anything I would like to buy a product from a manufacturer who has open support for GNU/Linux and to stay away from others who don't (BlueSoleil software, WinBond - and others).

Fedora Networking :: Unable To Connect To Wireless Networks And Unable To Configure Network

Jul 27, 2010

I just switched from Ubuntu to Fedora 13 because I was unable to get Ubuntu to connect to wireless networks. I tried everything suggested in help and forums, and kept getting "Bad Password" with WICD and Network Manager. Now, with Fedora...I still can't connect.

Problem #1: The guide says to "...make sure that the relevant wireless interface (usually eth0 or eth1) is controlled by NetworkManager," and that I do this via: System>Administration>Network

However, there is no Network option under System>Administration.

Problem #2: I open Network Manager, which displays a list of networks. I click on mine, configure it with WPA and the right password, and it fails to connect: "The network connection has been disconnected."
