I was confused by this today, but I think there is no real problem. I think what is happening is that when I don't type anything for a while, the keyboard is temporarily turned off to save power, either by itself of by upowerd, and then when I type on it again, it wakes up. But it doesn't wake up so fast that I don't notice that something has happened. ...

From the kernel version you are using you must have Ubuntu 14.04, a kernel update using the following command should help as this issue was fixed back in March with Ubuntu kernel 3.16.0-32 sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-core-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-video-all-lts-vivid ...

Try tapping the device in the Bluetooth settings and clicking Connect. If you get a PIN prompt, there's a chance you've got the same problem as described in this question. Alternatively if it appears in your connected devices but nothing happens when you press keys, you might be having the same problem as in this question. In either of those cases, it ...

You will need to install firmware first. It can be done using this answer. But it looks like kernel 3.13.0-59 has many bugs. Among them is inability to load the firmware. I suggest upgrading kernel to 3.19. It can be done by running in terminal sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-vivid and reboot.

I received this error message too when trying to send files between laptop and phone, but it wasn't solved by using a different method of sending/receiving. I could connect and 'pair' my device, however I couldn't send any files. The problem was solved by finding and killing some other interfering processes. I can't explain why is worked, only present my ...

TL;DR The file no longer exists in version 5 There is a PPA with packages for Saucy … Wily sudo add-apt-repository ppa:vidplace7/bluez5 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install bluez To install from source (Simply skip the steps that you have already performed) cd wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/bluetooth/bluez-5.32.tar.xz tar xf ...

Rookie mistake. My phone and my computer had the same exact user name "myuser"... that caused my issues. I changed the name of my phone, reboot phone and pc, now I can browse files and send files between devices no problem.

You can use the terminal to browse files on your bluetooth device. Bring up the terminal by Ctrl+Alt+t. The cd command is used to change directory. The ls command is used to list files in current directory. Removable devices are usually in the directory /media. To change directory to /media, enter the following: cd /media, then use the ls command to list ...

I managed to configure the "left edge swipe" and "right edge swipe" gestures using xbindkeys; this can probably apply also to the two finger swipes, but I did not bother with those as I find them difficult to perform anyway. This is my .xbindkeysrc #Right edge swipe (Send Alt+F2) "xte 'keydown Alt_L' 'key F2' 'keyup Alt_L'" ...

I had the same problem and for several months I have tried all possible solutions I could find to no avail,... until today! I found the solution in post #17 in the following https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1526534#p1526534 (tnx SimFox3) What I did: First copy the files I edited sudo cp /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf_tmp ...

On pairing a new device from Bluetooth settings... we can specify any PIN a device needs. After klicking on + in the bottom left corner we can give in Pin options... for automatic PIN selection (default) or for using a different fixed PIN for the device chosen. The PINs 0000, 1111, and 1234 can be selected from a radio button choice:

Firstly, I don't think you can change the PIN of a bluetooth device. It is certainly hard-coded and you can't do anything about it. Secondly, the right question to ask for your problem is: How do I specify a different PIN than 0000 when pairing a bluetooth device on android ? So you better ask /your favortie search engine/ about that:

To change the bluetooth host name permanently, on Ubuntu 14.04 or later: Open a terminal with CTRL-ALT-T Edit /etc/bluetooth/main.conf replacing "%h" with the computer name you want. "%h" always seems to represent "ubuntu" on my systems for some reason. gksudo gedit /etc/bluetooth/main.conf For example change Name = %h-%d to Name = gruber-%d ` Remove ...

There is quite a bit to manage in at least two different locations. The actual HC-05 has a MAC address, a default PIN number (1234), and default public identity (HC-05). These can be changed for better security, but it is easier to learn with the defaults in place.. If you change these early on, you have to remember your changes. And on the Linux side, ...

Well, since I can't promote fossfreedom's comment, I'll repost it ;-) This is a bug, currently assigned to unity-settings-daemon: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity-settings-daemon/+bug/1397142

Possible workaround for the sync problem: mplayer has a command-line option to adjust the delay between sound an image, so you could regain sync this way. The command would be mplayer -delay X /path/to/videofile where X is the delay in seconds. Negative values of X mean that the image will be delayed, and positive values mean the sound will be delayed.

Your AR5B95 does not include a bluetooth chipset, the AR5B195 is the card with the same AR9285 wifi with bluetooth

Search Dash for "Personal File Sharing" and click on the result and you should see this Then make sure the box next to "Receive files in Downloads folder over Bluetooth" has a checkmark in it and it should work

It looks like you have the [0a5c:21e8] Broadcom device. Download Broadcom Windows driver. Open it with Archive manager and extract BCM20702A1_001.002.014.1443.1459.hex file from it. Download the tool for that git clone git://github.com/jessesung/hex2hcd.git cd hex2hcd make You will get hex2hcd folder in your home directory. Place the firmware file to ...

Once the computer advertises on bluetooth as long as the keyboards profile exists and is saved. The keyboard must automatically issue the reconnect. It's usually the devices responsibility to reconnect to a previously connected host. Maybe your computer is not advertising on bluetooth on startup. Maybe the keyboards profile is not being saved. Those things ...

It turns out that I had caused the issue when I symlinked kcmshell4 to kcmshell5 as a workaround for a bug in another program. I restored kcmshell4, and now when I launch bluedevil-monolithic, all of the menu options work. Bluetooth config is still not showing up in the panel or system settings, but that is a topic for another question.

Check pactl list short for module-bluetooth-discover as it is needed for A2DP sound over bluetooth. Some versions of Blueman are known to remove it during boot. You can load module-bluetooth-discover with sudo pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover Then pair with the device and A2DP will work If you want or need HSP/HFP also then you need the ...

The Same issue goes for the Anywhere MX 2. I assume since they are both new then that they might be using similar hardware parts for the bluetooth connection. I use solaar for both my mx master and mx anywhere 2 via the logitech unifying receiver. Its not ideal, but it works for now. Logitech needs to recognize the Linux community and start issuing drivers ...

You can fix it by turning off bluetooth and wireless coexistence. Run in terminal sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf <<< "options iwlwifi bt_coex_active=N" and reboot. It looks like kernel developers have overdone that functionality slightly ;-) This setting can be always undone by sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf You can read this ...

Here is another example for monitoring all Bluetooth devices. It does not need to specify a specific MAC address. This approach makes the xinput setting persistent even when login/out, suspend/wake and connect/dis-connect your bluetooth device. This answer is originally from my other answer. I have a Thinkpad compact Bluetooth Keyboard, and I wish to run an ...

You can install a bluetooth driver this way sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hanipouspilot/rtlwifi sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install rtl8723au-bt-dkms rtlwifi-new-dkms linux-firmware and reboot. But if you previously installed Realtek wireless drivers from another source, you need to uninstall them first.
