Bluetooth Pairing on Ubuntu 10.04
- date: October 2, 2011
I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 which has Bluez 4.60.
I'm trying to pair my mobile phone with PC via bluetooth.
I followed these steps :
:~$ hcitool dev
:~$ hcitool scan'
Now for pairing, I found 'Bluetooth-agent' at '/usr/bin/bluetooth-agent'.
:~$ bluetooth-agent 1234
Can't register agent
Agent already exists'
bluetooth-agent details are :
'Bluetooth agent ver 4.60
agent [--adapter adapter-path] [--path agent-path] <passkey> [<device>]'
This might be useful in storing default pass-key.
How to use this bluetooth-agent for pairing??or is there any other way for pairing without using GUI??

I rarely use bluetooth, anyway,
in the past, I've used it, successfully,
How can I do the pairing, via command line,
on a Kubuntu Intrepid Ibex?
In the past I did the pairing with:
passkey-agent --default /etc/bluetooth/bluepin
Nowaday it is not possible to act in this way yet.
I read here:
In this tutorial the new procedure seems to be the following:
sudo hcitool cc your-phone-mac-address
sudo hcitool cc your-phone-mac-address
Unfortunately the first command seems to be successfull
(gives no output), but the second command told me the device is not connected
So how can I do the pairing, via command line,
on a Kubuntu Intrepid Ibex?
If I had more RAM I could use kbluetooth or some GUI,
but unfortunately I need to do the pairing via command line,
because of the low RAM machine I'm on.
iPhone OS3.0 and Ubuntu Bluetooth Teathering
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 18, 2009
Yay, Apple now break AT&T strangle hold on the iPhone and you are allowed to tether it where the carrier permits, and here in NZ, Vodafone allows it. 8)
So I have tested this from Windows7RC, Bluetooth pairs up, new adapter installed, I get a new IP Address and the phone acts like a router. Cool. Same on My Mac.
Now I boot to Ubuntu 9.04 - still learning my way around Linux though so please be gentle with me 8)
I got the phone and my laptop to pair, and the phone reports a good connection, but then I am completely at a loss as to how to configure the networking. The Network manager still only shows the wired and wifi interfaces I normally have. Is there a way to setup/configure the bluetooth connection too?

Magic Trackpad Bluetooth pairing fails ... but only with Unity
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 12, 2013
I've been trying out live versions of the various versions of Ubuntu 13.10 on my mid 2010 Mac Mini, mainly to see what works and what doesn't. Now in almost all the versions of Ubuntu that I've tried, I can get the Magic Trackpad to pair. Usually, after I press the power button on the trackpad, a little dialog box comes up and prompts me to enter a PIN, which is '0000' in this case. Shortly after that, I can get the trackpad paired. This has worked with Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Kubuntu, and Ubuntu GNOME. In the case of the version of Ubuntu that uses the Unity desktop, however, I've had no joy. First, there isn't even a prompt for a PIN. If I go and use the "Setup a New Device" dialog for Bluetooth, an entry for my trackpad will intermittently appear and disappear from the list of available devices, and it never remains long enough for me to click on the "PIN options" button and choose the option that sends '0000' to the device to be paired.
Any idea what's going wrong?

My bluetooth modem has a hex key (alphanumeric). The bluetooth dialog will only accept numbers. How do you pair my modem?

HTC Hero and Ubuntu Bluetooth BlueProximity
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 22, 2009
I recently got an HTC Hero and wanted to set it up with blueproximity with my laptop.
Prior to the hero I had a cheep little nokia that was working perfectly on blueproximity so I think I can attribute this to the hero alone.
HTC Hero (sprint) firmware 1.5
Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 on ASUS N70sv
Bluetooth Applet 1.8
I can pair the devices, but then the phone reads "paired but not connected" under "Menu -> Settings -> Wireless Controls -> Bluetooth Settings"
I can pair the devices, but the bluetooth applet under "Bluetooth Applet Context Menu -> Preferences" shows the device as disconnected no matter how much I hit connect icon.
I can pair the devices, but blueproximity constantly connects/disconnects to the device. It seems like it just goes between connected/disconnected each second.
Does anyone have any experiences with BlueProximity and the HTC Hero, and if so were you able to get it to work? Any
Bluetooth pairing fails with PIN (org.bluez.Error.AuthenticationFailed)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 24, 2014
EDIT: Alright, so it looks like I'm missing an agent. I finally found out about bluetoothctl, and when I registered agent KeyboardOnly; default-agent there, it worked! Now what do I have to do to make it usable via GUI? Plus it seems like blueman has some major bugs, anyway... attempting to connect results in an empty error message, and I can't receive files, because it's using an outdated DBUS interface for OpenObex, and obexfs fails silently... yay for userfriendliness! Imagine what a newbie would do in that situation...
EDIT2: OK, giving up. _Not even_ the stable or testing versions work together after purging and reinstalling everything about Bluetooth, they're _all_ incompatible. Even though I now managed to connect (have bluetoothctl running with keyboard agent, enter yes on connection attempt), and even though it registers like 10 services from the BlackBerry, _only_ the remote control service is allowed. When I try it the other way around, with obexftp, I have to specify the
