Trying to attach my Motorola Bravo (Android 2.1) phone to my Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS Laptop via Bluetooth. Can see the phone "pair" to it. But If I try to do the transfer of files, or browse (using the bluetooth applet), I can't see the phone.
Where are the configuration files for bluetooth in Lucid?
I have windows 7 and ubuntu karmic dual boot system.i can easily transfer files via bluetooth in windows 7 but in ubuntu it shows a message bluetooth adapter not connected while as i dont use any such adapter while working in windows .
It reads on my phone device, "Paired but not connected". With my icon I can set it up just fine, I can click "Connect" but nothing happens. I was able to pair & connect my Motorola SD9 Headphones but was unsuccessful in actually getting any sound from the head phones or the microphone to work. (But it does say paired and connected).
I know nothing about bluetooth issues. We do know it's not soft or hard blocked. 1: eeepc-bluetooth: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 2: hci0: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
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'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'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'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 trying to write a script to turn my HTPC off automatically and turn it back on again at a specified interval.
I've got the turn on off bit sorted using /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm but I want the script to not turn the machine off if say something is downloading, I am currently watching something etc and i dont think I will have any trouble with that.
But what I would really like to be able to do is tell if my TV is currently on. I dont think anything x11 related would work here and this may not even be possible. Does Ubuntu "know" if it's display device is powered on or not? if so can I interrogate this somehow?
I have a device (not a pc) connected to my pc via ethernet, it dose not show up in networks, I was hoping there was a way of scanning to detect for it, is there a way of seeing content of it is basically what I'm asking?
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!

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 use fedora12-Gnome as my major desktop OS. Every basic need was fulfilled , until I tried Fedora12 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?The same thing happened with Mandriva2010-Kde and Fedora13 Kde , I mean I guess It's related to KBluetooth app.
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 FireWire camera LifeSize connected to my PC in the FireWire interface. My PC has miniPCI slot and with external converter its having a FireWire interface. Now its Ubuntu who is not showing me anything at all when i try:
$ uname -a Linux desktop 2.6.38-11-generic-pae #48-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 29 20:51:21 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I got a sort of usb connected device(not an external enclosure) so i can connect a sata hard drive into a machine that only has ide connections but the drive is not mounting. I am not very good at mounting slave hard drives anyway ,,,,never been able to get one happening without help. I am wanting to read this drive as i killed another desktop machine(i think the mb) and i need the data off the hard drive. The drive is shown in a directory and in the media directory. Can't think of what else sorry as i am so tired from testing everything out of the machine that i killed.....
I am running 9.10 latest updates (as far as I know) My problem is with my usb connections.I cant connect different usb devices to the same usb ports if a device had been previously connected to it. IE: I have to keep my camera connected to one particular port. If I disconnect it and connect anything to it, it cant be seen. It doesnt matter if I reboot. Is there a way to clear out any memory that stores the usb port assignments?
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?
After a lot of messing around and research, I figured out how to actually get my bluetooth headphones to connect and stay connected. Although once I shut them off, remove the device and re-add it using Blueman.
Right now, `pavucontrol` shows "Headphones (unplugged)" and there is no sound coming out of the speakers. But there is no sound coming out of the headphones either. They are set to the fallback. I've opened `alsamixer` and made sure everything was turned up. Still, no sound.
Since `bt-audio` isn't on Jessie, I don't know what I should do. It seems like this may be the missing step but I am unsure.
I've been having a problem with Bluetooth on Debian 8 Jessie i just can't connect to any bluetooth device, i have only tested my smartphone and my bluetooth headphones, i am using blueman manager.After attempting to connect to my bluetooth headphones/smartphone it just disconnects and says "Connection Failed: No such file or directory",i don't know if i have to create a config file or something, the error message doesn't say anything but the error previously mentioned.
When a bluetooth controller I have connects I'd like a program launched (qjoypad) so that I can use it has a mouse. The controller has to be on before launching qjoypad otherwise qjoypad will not work.
So I was wondering if there is a way to launch a script when my controller connects, and then possibly when it disconnects to launch another script killing the qjoypad process.
EDIT: I created a script that checks if /dev/input/js0 exists, if it does then qjoypad is created
Code: #!/bin/bash while true; do if [ -c "/dev/input/js0" ]; then qjoypad
