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.
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 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 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:
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?)
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.
I can't configure Bluetooth in Slackware 13.1. It basically works. I can scan my mobile phone: Code: $ 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: Code: $ 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. Code: 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.
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:
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: Code: Select allAug 1 14:58:04 Noah-LEMUR kernel: [ 317.772054] BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000398 Aug 1 14:58:04 Noah-LEMUR kernel: [ 317.772090] IP: [<ffffffff81569f7e>] mutex_lock+0xe/0x30 Aug 1 14:58:04 Noah-LEMUR kernel: [ 317.772113] PGD 0 Aug 1 14:58:04 Noah-LEMUR kernel: [ 317.772123] Oops: 0002 [#1] SMP
I want to test whether or not my phone is connected from bash. I'm finding lots of information about /dev/rfcomm0, but that's not on my system (Ubuntu 10.04). The device pairs just fine, and I can connect with gammu just fine, and I have the device address ("00:1F:5D:37:17:FB").I just need something I can put in a bash script to say "Is this connected or not" akin to testing for a file's existence:

I am trying to pair my new iPhone 4 with my rev5,5 MBP running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
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...

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'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 have a nifty new headset (a JawBone icon�the noise cancellation is incredible) and I've successfully connected it to my Karmic laptop (64 bit, for the off chance it makes a difference). The trouble is, I only occasionally want to connect it to my laptop; I mostly use it with my mobile 'phone.
The two devices fight over my new toy a lot, and invariably the laptop wins, contrary to what I want. It seems a pain to have to rediscover the headset every time I want to use VIOP or whatever, so is there a way to add a device to Karmic's Bluetooth list, but not have it connect whenever it sees it?
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.
When i connect to my laptop a bluetooth usb stick, the bluetooth could not be turned on. the bluetooth dameon is on, and when i press the turn on button, nothing happens. in windows the stick works fine.
The bluetooth manager does not detect a bluetooth dongle .trying to use ndiswrapper to fix.I installed device manager and the results are shown below.i downloaded the windows driver suite. It has 4 .exe self extracting driver archives and a setupconfig.ini. The .ini file is below.I was able to extract one of the 32bit archives on a windows machine and it had about 8 .inf files that are titled weird and would not install properly using ndiswrapper probably because im using the 64-bit architecture. there are 2 64bit .exe's in the driver download, but how can i extract them in ubuntu and do i really need to install all 8 .inf files. also do i actually need to make a .inf file? if so how?

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 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 have got my headset connecting to the system using the BlueMan interface. When I first did this it gave me a error about not being able to put the sound on-top of 'pulseaudio'. Well this well about the last straw between me and Mr. 'PulseAudio', so away he went. I removed the demon via this instruction. [ubuntu] Safely Remove Pulseaudio?
I then tried connecting to my bluetooth headset again, no errors. But the bluetooth sound device does not show up in any mixer, or application. What else do I need to do to get this working again. I know my hardware is fine, it used to work in the previous version of Ubuntu and it all works on my wifes Windoze XP computer.
I've a custom startup script myscript.sh placed inside /etc/init.d/ directory with below lines to disable usb bluetooth device "hci0". This happens on Ubuntu Lucid.
Code: #!/bin/bash echo "Disabling hci0 bluetooth usb dongle" /usr/sbin/hciconfig hci0 down &
Here is the /var/log/daemon.log When I rebooted it worked fine disabling the bluetooth dongle. But, later on, it gets enabled! I've lost it!
