[SOLVED] ubuntu / linux bluetooth connection issues
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 18, 2010
this is a repost of my thread here about the issues I have been having with a bluetooth gps device.
All info about the system / debug logs can be found in the above referenced post. As to my issue, I can get the connection paired. I can get rfcomm to stream data from the device. I can connect gpsd -b to the /dev location. I can not seem to get xgpsd or any other application to read from gpsd.
I have been told that this is a bluetooth issue and not a API issue with gpsd - 3rd party application. If anyone else has a functioning bluetooth connection ( this only seems to affect gps devices ) that works using the latest stable blueZ stack please let me know. I just cant seem to get it working.
Thanks for checking in!
Failed discovery of a Bluetoothenabled headset on a Ubuntu 12.10 netbook
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 26, 2013
I'm having an issue with pairing my Bluetooth headset to my netbook, which has a USB Bluetooth adapter. No error messages are given: when both devices are searching for another with which to pair, they both simply time out.
The Bluetooth adapter works fine on trial with other devices.
This problem was not present in a version of Ubuntu released last year. Could you suggest any means by which to diagnose and correct the issue?

Has anyone experienced this issue and if so could you please provide a remedy? Thanks in advance!

Ubuntu iPhone 3.0 Bluetooth Tethering with uit.sh
- date: June 24, 2009
If you would like to use your iPhone 3.0 with your bluetooth capable Ubuntu 9.04 PC then uit.sh (Ubuntu Iphone Thethering) is for you. This script installs all required conf, allows you to enable and disable your iphone tethering and even uninstall the conf if you no longer need it. I do expect NetworkManager to eventually support this out of the box.
Thanks to http://xn--9bi.net/2009/06/17/tether...o-ubuntu-9-04/ blog post which assisted me in knowning what configuration was needed.

Bluetooth mouse stops to work after random time Ubuntu 13.04 on laptop
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 4, 2013
Recently I bought bluetooth mouse as an addition to my ubuntu 13.04 with xfce.
The mouse paired strait away and kept going for some time.
After some time it lost a connection. Restarts of hcpi, deamon or even try to rediscover did not help.
The only cure was to restart my laptop, where everthing started to work (again for some time and then it stops)
When mouse stops to work in dmesg i see:
[ 912.557942] Bluetooth: hci0 corrupted ACL packet
[ 912.557990] Bluetooth: hci0 ACL packet for unknown connection handle 12

when i move mouse i see it
HOWTO: Connect Sixaxis to Ubuntu through bluetooth mode
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 17, 2009
After the BlueZ stack was updated to 4.xx, Sixaxis joysticks (from Sony PS3 console) stop working. There's some people on the bluez team working to make it work, but it seems that it could take a while.
So I decided to create a simple GUI that would use some patched 'hidd' that allows to connect Sixaxis to a Linux PC "out-of-the-box".
The app is called 'QtSixA' (It will be in 'Apps' -> 'Utils' -> 'QtSixA'). The GUI is now complete and has been tested to work in 32, 64bit and PowerPC/PS3 computers.
If you're not running from a PS3 (or any PowerPC machine), add the repo by running this command:
For Ubuntu 9.10 or upwards:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:falk-t-j/qtsixa
For Ubuntu Jaunty or Intrepid, add QtSixA PPA to the Software Sources: (replace UBUNTU_VERSION by "jaunty" or "intrepid")
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/falk-t-j/qtsixa/ubuntu UBUNTU_VERSION main
Then can you install it by opening a terminal and
