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
bluetooth cannot send nor receive files in ubuntu 11.10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 16, 2011
Hello Ubuntu folks. I just got a problem with Oneiric. My bluetooth, which worked perfectly in Natty, suddenly has gone crazy. It seems to be unable to receive or send files. After pairing my computer with my phone, I clicked 'browse files' but nothing happened (in Natty, it used to open nautilus and browse files from my phone). I tried sending a file but failed. It says 'did not receive a reply'. I tried sending a file from my phone to my computer but also failed. Did anyone encounter this problem?? Please help... . I don't know if it's a driver problem or anything but it worked perfectly in Natty so I guess it has to do something with Oneiric.
BTW, I have a Vaio-VPCCW1S1E running Ubuntu 11.10. I just upgraded yesterday.
Ubuntu 10.10 bluetooth connection with android
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 30, 2011
I've been trying to connect my android phone (Samsung Galaxy S) with bluetooth to transfer files. They find each other perfectly fine and both phone and computer say they are paired. But I cannot transfer any files what so ever. When I do the connection there is a small icon (a cable?) in the device list which I guess shows that there is a connection and the device name is in bold. This is the case for just a second after setup and then it goes back to look like the other items in my device list.
What am I doing wrong? Am I supposed to mount the phone? If so, why isn't it done automatically?
Thanks in advance.
Logitech USB headset won't work in ubuntu 10.10... help?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 3, 2011
I am a week-old newbie to Ubuntu.
Here's what I tried:
1. Put logitech USB headset in USB-port.
2. Opened sound preferences.
3. Headset was recognised in "Hardware", "Input" and "Output" so I selected it.
4. Closed sound preferences.
5. Opened sound preferences again and it had re-selected internal audio of my laptop.
Why? How can I save the headset settings? It works, but won't "stick".
Please help, there's probably a really simple answer that I just don't get.
Bluetooth issue Ubuntu 12.04.1
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 3, 2013
I recently purchased a Microsoft bluetooth wedge mouse and keyboard for my blackberry playbook. Everything works great, however when I am using Ubuntu 12.04.1 on my HP Pavilion DV5235ca laptop I can get the mouse working but not the keyboard. Ubuntu finds the keyboard but when I type in the code, I get a failed to connect result.
I am considering a purchase of a Lenovo M57 desktop that will be running Ubuntu 12.04.1 and wish to use my MS wedge keyboard and mouse with it using my ASUS USB - BT211 dongle.
All help will be appreciated.
Ubuntu 12.04.2 does not detect my bluetooth device
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 2, 2013
My laptop is Dell Inspiron 3521 and I am using Ubuntu 12.04.2
The problem is that Ubuntu is not detecting my Bluetooth device. Its an inbuilt device and has a hardware lock as well as soft lock feature.
I remember, when I installed Ubuntu initially, it used to detect my BT, though it doesn't used to search devices. But, now, after updating Ubuntu, it does not detect BT at all. I have tried turning it on-off several times, but no success.
Dropping bluetooth connection on Ubuntu 11.4...help needed.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 27, 2011
I run Ubuntu 11.4, fresh install, on Acer Travelmate 5520G. I'm having a problem with using a bluetooth headset with it. Whenever I try the connection drops after a while (shorter or longer, this is really erratic...).
When this happens the headset is still listed in the bluetooth preferences but reconnecting is not possible, only through removal and re-discovery.
I've investigated and here are my findings (I'm not a superuser so please treat me as a beginner):
1. The connection with the headset can be established, headset is added to the devices as well as shows in Sound Preferences having been added.
2. Sound can be routed through the headset.
3. The connection drops suddenly without a visible pattern after an arbitrary length of time - 30 sec or can go till disconnected by hand.
4. Re-connection is not possible. The headset disappears from Sound Preferences, although it's still present in bluetooth devices. Attempts to reconnect fail. /var/log/syslog shows:

HOWTO: Sync Evolution with Nokia N95 via Bluetooth on Ubuntu Gutsy

** NOTE: 26TH APRIL 2008 - THIS GUIDE ALSO APPLIES TO UBUNTU 8.04 HARDY HERON. TESTED AND WORKING 100% **
After much pain, I have finally got my Nokia N95 (non-8GB model) syncing properly with Evolution, so I thought I'd share my experience, in particular to those who are currently suffering from the "Syntax error" issue that arises out of most of the other HowTo's.
This HowTo has the following prerequisites:
Vanilla Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon 7.10 with relevant updates to today. Or vanilla Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04 LTS First Release.Nokia N95 with firmware 11.0.026 or later.OpenSync version 0.21 (Gutsy comes with 0.19 which causes the "Syntax error" messages people have been getting - Hardy Heron comes with 0.22).Evolution 2.12.0 (as shipped with Gutsy - Hardy ships with 2.22.1).A successful pairing of your N95 and Ubuntu install. If you can transfer files to/from your N95, you're ready to sync Evolution. If you don't know how to pair your Bluetooth-enabled pho
