Is there no response from the community because I didn't provide enough information, or is it because no-one has encountered this issue?
Maybe they read "lubuntu" and just moved on, as I nearly did. Possibly they are just not interested in BT. No matter.
I just tested it (it took me a while to find a BT device, but): pairing works fine with ubuntu 10.04.2LTS (Yes, I am not "cutting edge", but which version of lubuntu are you using?).
I use gnome. Add to top panel Indicator Applet
It has a BT icon. Fire it up, Set up new device, connect to it, enter the ubuntu-generated PIN on the device, they are paired. They stay paired. I just sent a JPG to my ancient palm T2, even after both devices were rebooted. It "just works".
So my GUI does all the dirty work for me.
Here is a link that may help you discover what is going wrong at the CLI or the config-files levels:http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/...s_under_Ubuntu
It's also worth taking a look at /var/lib/bluetooth/*
and in particular /var/lib/bluetooth/some:MAC:address(of your phone)/trusts
Maybe give it an edit and make your PC trust the BT MAC address of your phone?
Remember that restarting services on recent ubuntus has changed (with the introduction of upstart
instead of SysV init) but /etc/init.d/whateverservice restart may
have been replaced with service whateverservice restart
. If in doubt, or it doesn't work, reboot. (Off-topic:"Services" used to be called "daemons". I never had to reboot. Is ubuntu getting more and more like windows?).
Not a definitive answer, I know, but I am not asking for money, just trying to help. Perhaps I have given you a few pointers.
I'm quite busy, but will keep an eye on this thread. It's probably something simple, and fixable. Good luck.
