Wammu doesn't find my k800i, hcitool does


I need a software that can replace the sonyericsson pc suite in linux, so I installed bluez and dependencies with kbluetooth and other stuff. Previously I used wammu with the USB cable, but now I prefer put the phone in range ad synchronize it automatically.
Unfortunately, wammu says that my device does not exist, while hcitool find it:

Quote:
[sloteel@athlonxp ~]$ hcitool scan
Scanning ...
00:1E:45:DB:4E:14 K800i il mio
[sloteel@athlonxp ~]$
And so kbluetooth too. What can I do to make wammu find my phone?

I'm not sure what the utility you're using requires, but I know when I was using my Bluetooth phone as a modem (DUN..it was a few years ago.. ), I had to bind the device, using rfcomm.

Try something like:

rfcomm bind 0 <your bluetooth MAC addresshere> 1

And check out the man pages for rfcomm. You should wind up with a /dev/rfcomm0 device. Your utility will have to look at that device. The USB cable was probably coming up as /dev/ttyUSB0 or something similar.

Just a suggestion.

This is a good suggestion, unfortunately it is not the only needed. Making wammu point to /dev/rfcomm0 will make the phone connected for a second, than wammu prints this error:

"Error opening device. Unkonwn/busy or no permissions.
Function: init
Error code: 2"

I get this by using manual configuration, if I search for a phone wammu doesn't find it as always.
