Ubuntu Networking :: 11.04 Bluetooth Scanning Endlessly And Not Finding Phone?
Sep 1, 2011
I actually have two problems: I couldn't get DUN to work with Ubuntu for a while and then one day it just magically worked and would let me find the device and connect to it. And then it broke again. So in my effort to fix the problem it looks like Bluetooth went completely off the rails. When I try to add a Bluetooth device through the manager it just keeps spinning with "Searching for Devices" but the spinning finds nothing (it would run for an eternity if I let it, it seems). hcitool scan reports "Scanning ..." and then drops back to command prompt. hciconfig notes the device is up. The device has no soft/hard locks on it. If anyone has a CLUE about what it could be.
Obvious note: My phone is in bluetooth mode and discoverable so that isn't the problem.
If I make the computer visible, my phone DOES NOT pick up it's there. Also, bluetooth works fine on the Fedora USB stick.
I am having an problem with bluetooth. Computer seems to find my mobile phone, I can send files from PC to my phone, but not vice versa. As I try to send, it pops "Failed" (in phone) and nothing happens. Kubuntu 10.04 Windows mobile 6 (HTC p3450).
I have a samsung messager touch R631 with 3G capability and I am trying to connect my laptop to the internet through it via bluetooth. Everything worked when I had the MAC OSx on my laptop, and after I switched to ubuntu 10.04LTS (32 bit) I cannot get it to work again. I did some searching and checked a few things out, but Everything I've tried with the BlueZ isn't working. It shows I'm connected, but it just doesn't work...is there any way to get it to work or another program or something I need? these are the 2 pages I refferenced...[url] [url]
How to connect to my Mobile Phone which have GPRS. I want to connect Via BLUETOOTH. Becoz I dont have any Data Cables.Plz give me the instructions to connect to my Phone via Bluetooth to access Internet.
I've just loaded up Fedora 13 and I like the new feature Fedora have which allows you to use your mobile as a internet modem over bluetooth. Is it possible to update my Network Manager in ubuntu 10.04 to this new version 0.8.997 through the package manager? Is there a PPA or something I could use?
Would just updating this add the bluetooth ability or would I have to update gnome-bluetooth package as well? Is it doable at all or should I just wait till the next Ubuntu comes out?
I've a Nokia 2323 Classic which I want to use to access to the internet on my laptop.
A friend of mine with a Dell Inspiron 15 running Windows 7 could connect to the net by just pairing up and right clicking on my phone's icon in the devices menu and selecting connect to internet via access point.
I've an eMachines E725 which lacks bluetooth. To overcome this I used a dongle which was able to successfully pair up with my phone via the bluetooth menu in preferences.
So what next ? How do I use the phone to connect to the internet directly via access point ?
I noticed that I did not need any operator related settings to do so in windows 7 and the phone worked regardless of SIM card present so I assume it should work similarly in linux.
What is left is to ask the system to treat it as an internet access device and use it that way.
How do I do it ? I don't mind a commandline way but a GUI would be better because I'm not the only person using my laptop.
I have a liveusb running Fedora 11 on my hp laptop. I would like to use my T-Mobile Dash 3G unlimited data connection. I have seen many posts regarding wvdial, modem scripts, etc that are going a little over my head. I was able to connect my phone to the laptop, but when I tried to initiate internet sharing on the phone via Bluetooth PAN, nothing happened on the computer. I was connected but not able to do anything.
I saw some developer in a blog mention that he had put Bluetooth PAN support in Fedora 12. Is this not available in F11? Should I try moving to a F12 liveusb for this?
Has anybody had success getting a Tmobile 3G to work with F11?
I would rather use the USB connection so I could charge simulteously, but this looks a lot tricker.
I am working on Ubuntu-10.4 and I want to transfer 'hello.txt' file form my computer to mobile phone (Nokia 7210).When I run command, My mobile ask for accept the connection from ubuntu (device name connected to ubuntu). I accept the connection, Then I got the error log given above.
Devices are paired, sending files from laptop to phone no problem. I think, there is a problem with permissions to write into a public dir. Picture 1. Permissions settled for shared 'Public' dir. Picture 2. Grey-out options in Bluetooth 'receive file' dialog. What to install into system to resolve that issue? Or, is there another solution?
I have a dell precision m4300 laptop with a 360 wireless bluetooth dell adapter On my system there is a debian lenny with kde3 and backported enable(everythings is p to date except bluez-utils and bluetooth holded at version 3.36-3)
Nowadays bluetooth more less works fine, I can send and receive single file to/from my phone (nokia n70)
The hell begin when I try to browse my phone files from konqueror...with bluetooth:/ I can see the list of all the device near me with sdp://[address]/ i can see two icons (obex file transfer & obex object push) but I cant see or access to any file or folder into the phone.
I also try to update my bluez-utils to 4.60-1~bpo50+1 but in this case kbluetooth totally fail and a see the contextual menu of the system tray icon all disaled.
I have been using Linux close to 2 years now. One thing that always bewildered me is audio support in Linux. These days I login to windows only for listening to music. After reading various blogs, i decided to give it a try in Linux with Amarok. There again I am facing a problem.
while i try to scan for music files it is not finding any files.
I have tried with mp3 .wma format files. While I try to add these files individually, Amarok is able to play those.
I am using Amarok 2.3.2 with KDE 4.4.5. Fedora - 12 is my flavor.
Given below is the log obtained with amarok -debug option
TagLib: MPEG::Header:arse() -- First byte did not match MPEG synch. TagLib: MPEG::Header:arse() -- Invalid sample rate. TagLib: A frame of unsupported or unknown type 'TSC' has been discarded TagLib: A frame of unsupported or unknown type 'TSC' has been discarded TagLib: A frame of unsupported or unknown type 'TSC' has been discarded
So I can send pictures from my phone to my PC, I've bought a Bluetooth USB adapter, just a cheap one.
System>Preferences>Bluetooth without the adapter says 'no adapters are plugged in'. With the adapter in I get a preferences screen to find new devices, so my PC is seeing the Bluetooth adapter. I've then got it to successfully find both my phone and my wife's and entered the provided pin into each phone. My desktop is duly listed as a device on each phone.
However, if I try and send a picture from either of the phones to the PC the phone says it can't see any devices and the sending fails.
Also, how do I send files the other way, from PC to phone? I installed Obex but it simply hung then closed itself.
I am trying to connect my cell phone through a Bluetooth dongle in Ubuntu 8.10 but when I try setting up a new device my cell phone is not seen. I tried reading some guides, I installed everything needed but still it doesn't work, some files are even missing (probably because they guides are for older versions of Ubuntu but i can't find a new guide on it) like.
I tried the following commands: jessica@jessica-desktop:~$ sudo hcitool scanScanning ... 00:16:75:15:14:81 Hill Billy jessica@jessica-desktop:~$ sudo hidd --connect 00:16:75:15:14:81 Can't get device information: Success jessica@jessica-desktop:~$
I guess they work but how come my device is still not seen in the Bluetooth applet? How can I send files? Why can't I connect to the computer using my phone? I don't want to depend on windows for this too.
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.
There is a feature in MS Windows OS that allows users to play the songs on their mobile on the computer via bluetooth, i.e., the users can use the computer speakers as a bluetooth headset. Are there any ways or any software to do the same in GNU/Linux?
I can send files to my bluetooth mobile phone, but when sending a file from the phone to the PC, the phone issues an error message "Sending failed", and I can not figure out, why. /var/log/messages does not contain any related entries. Do you have any idea where to look for the problem? I am using KDE. I found many complaints about the same problem, but they all date from 2007-2008, so I guess this is not the same problem.
Got a Sony Ericsson K800i which I tether by USB. I'm having trouble finding the port for the config file, I have used HWINFO and I can see my phone but on the 'Linux.sysfs_path' parameter it doesnt state which tty I am on.
Anybody have any suggestions as I would really like to be able to read my sms messages on my system while hooked up.
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 been looking for a piece of software that can do the following; however, I am unsure what category of technology it would fall under. In addition, I am not sure if I am describing it correctly. I am looking for a piece of software that will allow a Bluetooth connection between my desktop, and cell phone. I then can place a Internet based call (SIP software, Skype, Google Talk) via the cell phone, which has been connected to the desktop system by Bluetooth.
I want to be able to receive and send calls via the cellphone, but use Internet for my calls. What got me thinking about this is a house phone I have by Panasonic, which has the capability to pair your cell phone via Bluetooth to the main base-station. This allows the option to answer calls to my house number, via my cell phone.

I have recently installed open suse 11.2 on my hp hdx18 laptop replacing windows 7. trying to use my phone as a bluetooth access point so i can connect to the internet when im out and about and there isnt a bt openzone network around. my phone is a sony ericsson w910i. i can connect to my phone via blue tooth and use it as a remote control and browse, send and receive files. but cant figure out how to use it as an access point to the internet. win7 had an option to connect via access point giving me instant internet access over the vodafone mobile phone network, but i cant find an option like that in open suse, if there even is one.
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 am not sure if this is the correct place to post this, so feel free to move it around (mods) I have a Nokia 2700, the full specs of which are available here - [URL].. And it looks somewhat like this >
So the idea here is, I have connected it up in every possible way to my laptop through bluetooth. I have found a way to stream music playing on the phone through my laptop speakers. What I want to be able to do is to be able to stream music playing on my laptop (all sounds through the soundcard) via bluetooth (perhaps?) from my mobile phone speakers..
