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 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 :: 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.

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.

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 Headset Keeps Disconnecting?

Jan 15, 2010

short version: My bluetooth headset keeps disconnecting.Full version:I'm using a 64-bit distro of 9.10 on a 1.6 GHz AMD Turion 64 laptop, with an external bluetooth dongle and a bluetooth headset. The dongle is recognized right off, the headset pairs perfectly through the bluetooth preferences panel, and sound redirects through the soundpreferences panel... For about 2 minutes. I know, it's odd, but every 2 minutes or so bluetooth disconnects from the headset. Sound shifts to the speakers, the applications don't miss a beat, and when I reconnect the headset through the bluetooth control it shifts right back to the headset. This happens regardless of other programs running. I tried it with no other applications running, and with a fairly heavy load, and it reoccurs.Here's the odd part: I had the CPU set on "Ondemand," to save battery power, but when I plugged in and shifted it to "Performance," it started happening ever 4 minutes or so...I've Googled around and found plenty about getting my headset to connect, but nothing about KEEPING it connected

Ubuntu :: No Audio On Bluetooth Headset / Get That?

May 3, 2011

So I picked up a really cheap BT USB dongle (~$2) and can use the mic just fine but audio won't work. code...

I figure that I'm just overlooking something (I checked all the volume sliders and "mute" checkboxes I could find) or that I need to get a better BT dongle. Any thoughts?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Bluetooth Headset As Headphones?

Mar 9, 2011

I have a Sony Ericsson HBH-PV700 bluetooth headset that came packaged with a Sony Ericsson K510i phone.I was hoping to be able to use it under Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat as a headset and POSSIBLY as a microphone...I don't think it supports a2dp, so maybe this is a waste of effort. The Bluetooth adapter I'm using is Bluetooth 2.0 compilant, as far as I know. (It may be 1.2, but there's no way it's 1.1 compilant).

I have paired it with my PC and tried finding it as output and input in the Sound Preferences...no option. There's nothing in [System > Preferences > Multimedia Systems Selector] either! I have also tried the instructions at the Ubuntu Community Help Pages for Bluetooth Headset. However, my system fails to initialise the module-alsa-sink and module-alsa-source via the pactl command .I don't even know if it is possible with this device, but I'm willing to give anything a try! P.S. I'm not comfortable with installing a ton of packages just for one thing, but if there's no other option it's fine, I guess.

Fedora Hardware :: Bluetooth Headset Disconnects?

I am on Fedora 12.I have a USB bluetooth dongle and a bluetooth headset.The dongle gets recognised fine and I can pair the headset as well. PulseAudio sees the input and output of the headnet perfectly. It also runs perfectly for about one minute, and then the headset is disconnected. Why?During the sixty seconds where everything works, I also hear a beep (about every 20 seconds).After disconnecting I have to put the headset back into pairing mode and then remake the connection. And then everything works for another minute, and then the headset is disconnected again. Why

Hardware :: Playing Music In Bluetooth Headset ?

Sep 10, 2009

I have compiled Bluez 4.50 for arm and have installed it. The bluetoothd daemon is running fine. But when I enabled the blueoothd -nd & i get an error saying, Failed to access HAL. After a bit of digging, i tried installing hal on the board in vain. The hcitool scan runs fine and shows all the devices in the vicinity. I compiled agent.c from the test folder and am using it to pair in command line because i donot have python on the board. I see the packets getting txd and rxd in the hcidump when i try to pair with the headset. even the light in the headset changes after pairing. but i donot hear any sound when i play a *.wav file.

Debian Hardware :: Sid (xfce) - Can't Get Bluetooth Headset To Connect

Feb 22, 2016

I am using Debian sid(xfce). I have a bluetooth dongle and a bluetooth headset. The headset supports only the HFP and HSP profiles.

I think I have installed all the necessary packages but I have problems connecting to it. Pairing works, but connecting via a profile doesn't.

The dongle works great for transferring files to other devices.

When I tell blueman to connect to either profile of the headset it connects for maybe one second and then immediately disconnects with the error:

Failed to connect: org.bluez.Error.Failed

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.

Debian Hardware :: Pulseaudio Incorrectly Recognizes Bluetooth Headset As Mono

Sep 10, 2014

Having trouble with pulseaudio (0.9.21, Debian Squeeze) failing to properly recognize a Turtle Beach X-ray headset?

My tv connects fine, playing Dolby Digital through it without issue, but my computer doesn't. (A possible side effect: Flash videos play in slow-mo when the headset is connected to the computer's bluetooth adapter, but not when the headset is disconnected.)

Is there a way to tell Pulseaudio to give the headset 6 channels?

Some info:

Code: Select all~ » pulseaudio --dump-modules                                                 
module-alsa-card                        ALSA Card
module-alsa-sink                        ALSA Sink
module-alsa-source                      ALSA Source
module-always-sink                      Always keeps at least one sink loaded even if it's a null one
module-augment-properties      Arugment the property sets of streams with additional static information
module-bluetooth-device                 Bluetooth audio sink and source

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth And Skype \ Make A Call Using These Headphones With Skype, Can Speak For Say 10 Seconds And Then The Headset Disconnects Completely From The System?

Aug 12, 2010

I recently bought a IOgear USB bluetooth adapter and a Sony DRBT101/BLK bluetooth headphones to use with my computer.Whenever I try to make a call using these headphones with skype, I can speak for say 10 seconds and then the headset disconnects completely from the system. I then have to reconnect the headset by switching it off and on. I do not have this problem listening to music using A2DP. It works fine with my mobile phone.When I change the profile to Telephony Duplex (HSP/HFP), it shows up as hands free, I thought it should be headset in blueman manager. My friend uses Plantronics headset with is Dell laptop with built in bluetooth and he says his comes up as headset not hands free. Could this be causing the problem?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Pairing IPhone 4 With 10.04 On MabBook Pro Rev 5,5?

Using Blueman I am unable to pair the two devices. The iPhone 4 shows up and I am prompted to pair either with a random passkey or a custom one. The problem is, the passkeys don't match. For instance, if I enter 1234 as the custom passkey - a random 6-digit number is displayed on the iPhone!

Is it possible to pair 10.04 with the iPhone 4? I wish to use bluetooth tethering...
