I have purchased a Cyber-Blue bluetooth 2.0 USB dongle and I am trying to pair my Nokia N800 Internet Tablet to my computer which is running gNewSense, a GNU/Linux distribution based on Ubuntu (which, in turn, in based on Debian).
I have tried using bluetooth-gnome, kde-bluetooth, grml-btnet and I have tried to play around with hcid, hcid.conf, hcitool but I could not establish a connection.
I have to say that the computer "sees" the dongle very well, and the OS "sees" the N800 (a search on gnome's bluetooth manager finds the N800 but when I try to click on "properties" nothing happens). It looks to me that this is not a hardware issue.
On the N800 side I went to tools->control panel->bluetooth-devices-new where it 'found' my computer with no problems. I then tried to pair the devices and it gave me a passcode. I found no way of "seeing" that passcode request on my computer other than this message on the tail -f /var/log/syslog output:
gNewSenseBox2 hcid: pin_code_request (sba=00:15:83:BE:9E:F0, dba=00:19:4F:DB:1B:54)
However, I did not find how to answer this pin request to the connection was terminated with the message "pairing failed".
Which file should I edit to have my desktop respond to the authentification request with the correct pin number?
I also have a Nokia 6133 cellphone which I would like to connect to my computer. What utility should I use to connect them?
Many thanks for any help,
