Internal bluetooth dongle
« on: May 06, 2009, 09:31:36 pm »
 Hi All,

I'm seting up an md with an internal bluetooth device, i got a 03f0:011d Hewlett-Packard Integrated Bluetooth Module
and i can't get it to work with lmce. it work under kubuntu 8.10

 Is there any hint to get this internal blutooth dongle working.

Regards,

Rafik

Hi rafik24

If this is lmce 810, I've seen talk about some problems with auto detecting usb devices, assuming this dongle is a usb device. You could try manually installing the pluto-bluetooth-dongle package on the md.

Hi rafik24,

This isn't going to help your situation - being an internal bluetooth, but...

on 810 alpha the best way to get an external usb dongle to work is to plug it in after autodetection has finished.

Then if the dongle is happy in that port it will be detected as a phone interface.

I found if I left the dongle plugged in I could not connect, or it was very difficult to get it to connect to a wiimote.

Cheers.
