Software :: Auto-connecting The Bluetooth Devices?
Sep 5, 2010
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.
I bought a new notebook HP Presario CQ56 with Linux openSUSE 11.0 Everything works and the Bluetooth device is ON. Also the one in my cellphone. But the one in the PC does not detect any device and ergo cannot configure it.Got Bluetooth Applet 1.8 installed.In #suse and #bluez IRC chats couldn't give me a hand =/
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.
I bought this bt dongle, and when i plug it, the operating system detects it and everything seems to be working fine. Although, When I search for devices, neither my phone nor my laptop are found. Searching for devices on both of them doesnt find this computer either. lsusb output is : Bus 002 Device 006: ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode)
hciconfig -a output is:
hci0: Type: BR/EDR Bus: USB BD Address: 00:15:83:11:F7:58 ACL MTU: 384:8 SCO MTU: 64:8 UP RUNNING PSCAN ISCAN
I have a HCL K21 PDC notebook . In windows there is an driver called wconsole.exe or wireless console which help me turn on and off both blutooth and wlan device but in ubuntu these devices are not turned off. I also tried to to use the device buttons but it get activated automatically (but not in windows).
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
i have the following challenge: i have a Bluetooth GPS device that i have connected to my linux notebook. but now i also want to use the same device (or better, GPS data stream) for my Navigation device (HP Ipaq with TomTom). make an serial port bluetooth service (sending) that my Navigation device can connect to. copy the incoming bluetooth serial port data stream to the outgoing bluetooth serial port.
i have already installed GPSD so i have the TCP port where the GPS data is available for everything on my notebook. but now i also want it to send it out through bluetooth.
1. is there someone out there who already did this?
2. how to make an bluetooth serial port service on Fedora 12?
3. how to copy a data stream from 1 device to the next device?
pairing bluetooth devices on Centos? I'm trying to pair a phone (Nokia 6086) with a bluetooth dongle. I've been able to do it on Ubuntu (using the bluetooth applet), but so far no luck connecting it to a Centos machine. Steps I have taken so far:
I've followed the guide at URL.... but my computer is unable to find any Bluetooth devices. Whether I'm using the command line or gnome-bluetooth, I don't get any results. If I plug in a cheap USB adapter, I'm able to connect and use the devices.My computer is a HP ProBook 4330s running Debian Jessie. And as far as I can tell the Bluetooth adapter is a Ralink rt3592 combination Wi-Fi and Bluetooth PCI card. The Wi-Fi works fine, but when i try to connect to a Bluetooth device, I get no search results.
I did a forum search and too much came up that was not the answer I was looking for. I have only Linux devices at work and I was wondering how do Linux Administrators connect to Cisco devices via serial console cable. Cisco recommends 'Hyper Terminal' which was a Windows add-on applications licensed to XP. I think Vista and 7 no longer have the license to use Hyper Terminal. Regardless I don't have any versions of Windows and would like to use a serial cable from Com port 1 to the console port on the device. I can't use SSH since some devices don't support SSH and or I have to do a password recovery.
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 many flash drives, memory sticks, card reader, and 2 mybook 1tb so i am constanly plugging in, or unplugging devices from my machine running the latest version of ubuntu (i beleive 10.04?). I remember when i use to connect a device it would mount and work right off the bat. but now, everytime i connect anything, i have to go through Disk Utility to select the drive and mount it (also unmount before disconnect). Another problem is that some times disk utility doesnt like to work (as with a few other programs). This happends every now and then and im not sure if its my systems hardware or this version of ubuntu. every now and then programs like to stop responding (turn grey) and some programs like disk utility will open up, but just be blank and not show the detected devices
My 10.04 64-bit desktop has been auto-mounting USB devices (flash drives and my mp3 player) as read-only for some reason. I had this issue happen once a while in the past, so I simply re-mounted it as rw.
Code: mike@mike-desktop:~$ mount | grep -i 36CB /dev/sdc1 on /media/36CB-D1A8 type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks,uid=1000,gid=1000,shortname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1,flush)
bluetooth-applet is not auto-starting on one of the 2 users of a system. In the user's environment where auto-start does not work it can be started from a shell without any error and bluetooth otherwise works fine. There is an entry in the start up applications preferences for both users. We are running 9.10.
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?)

today I installed Opensuse 11.3 on my new laptop, a Samsung R540. Initially I got my Logitech bluetooth mouse working because I hate the touch pad, then I got the wireless network working by upgrading the kernel with the broadcom-wl package at which point the Logitech bluetooth mouse stopped working. I am able to detect the mouse when I go to add new devices using the gnome-bluetooth applet but it times out when it tries to connect.
Previously, everytime I insert a USB drive it automatically mounts. But now I am getting this error:
"Unable to mount 8.0 GB Media DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."
Also, previously my CD/DVD works properly. But now everytime I insert a disk, this is what I get:
"Unable to mount TOSHIBA
DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."
In 8.04 it was easy to adjust, but with 10.04 I've tried to set the policies for udisks with no luck. I want Ubuntu to always ask for my password when a new device/disk is added to the system. If I don't give my password it should not mount the device. What happens now is that all disks added is mounted without any question leading me to believe that the policies is ignored (by a bug) or that I've missed something. I've been through obvious setting in the graphical shell and disabled them. But if they'd been enabled the policies should have kicked in. I do think it worked in version 9.10 when I tested it earlier this year or late last year, but I was waiting for the next LTS. How may I set up Ubuntu 10.04 to make it work as intended?
I am running UBUNTU 10.04 on an X86 system 64bit. I am trying install a wireless keyboard and am not having much luck.
-My non wirelessUSB keyboard and mouse work fine. -My wireless logictech mouse works fine without adding any special drivers/packages -Wireless Keyboard (LX500, uses same receiver as mouse) does not work with standard config -Adding HIDPOINT and selecting my wireless mouse and keyboard (LX500) - wireless key board does not work. Mouse still works.Since my wireless mouse worked before HIPOINT installation (64 bit), I believe HIDPOINT is not working.
HIPOINT Does not detect my wireless devices auto, must manually select them. So I believe that there is some conflict with other drivers.Can anyone point be in a direction to look? What are the typical configuation files and drivers used to configure standard USB mouse and keyboards? What are some other software that might be installed that is conflicting with HIDPOINT?
When I installed slackare 13 it detected usb drives and cameras automaticallyow it doesn't. I am runnning a 13.0 system, not current, so I have only applied the updates in that branch (iirc including a new kernel).nowadays when i plug a device in it does not seem to be detected by HAL (i.e not in KDE).However the device is listed if you use the command "lsusb" and the computer obviously knows it has been plugged in as there is a relevant entry in dmesg.Sorry for the generallised nature of the post, but I don't really know anything about HAL or how it can have stopped working
Im using a Samsung R420/R470 laptop with Broadcom bluetooth and a Prolink PMO624B mouse.My mouse works when I add it as a new device, but if I off the mouse and on it again, the mouse does not auto connect. I have to press and hold the connection button under the mouse and reconnect to the mouse.The mouse says that it is linux compatible, so I guess its a problem with my bluetooth drivers.
Since i have 10.10 desktop i386 on my asus 901 im able connecting over bluetoth to my sony ericsson fone and get internet working! but i mmust everytime connecting doing the autorisation with the bluetooth device everytime conecting i must write for example 1 on both devices - laptop and handy,it must be on the linux software how can i turn off this issue!
