Android Bluetooth&Linux Mint 12


Hi, new here and to Linux. I have an Adroid phone that I'm attempting to connect via bluetooth to Linux Mint 12. My phone shows it sees the PC as "paired but not connected" and the PC shows it sees the phone as "paired but not connected". Any idea why I can't connect? Thank you

did you verify that you turned bluetooth on in the phone? A lot of times it's default to off, because it's so battery intensive

Hi,

Yes I checked that. In fact I've deleted the phone from the PC and put my phone in the "discovery" mode and did a search from the PC and it could not find the phone at all. After several attempts I finally discovered the phone but it still would not connect. The phone is about 12" from the PC. The phone does connect when I'm booted into Windows 7.

I should have mentioned that I've had the Android connected via bluetooth to Ubuntu 10. I've also paired and connected a laptop to my PC via bluetooth on LM12 (but I can't xfer files). Looks like others are having the same problems.
