USB Bluetooth Dongle not recognized


Hi,

I'm trying to get my Yakumo USB Bluetooth Dongle to work (the same dongle works on Suse 9.3 but doesn't on 10.0 now ).

All bluez-packages are installed....

When I plug in the dongle /var/log/messages tells me
Code:
Nov 11 18:41:10 linux kernel: usb 3-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3
Nov 11 18:41:10 linux hcid[19111]: HCI dev 0 registered
Nov 11 18:42:47 linux kernel: hci_cmd_task: hci0 command tx timeout
KBluetoothD in kicker is always gray and I can't right click the symbol for example when dongle is plugged in.

When I unplug the dongle I get a KBluetoothD message which says "Bluetooth adapter was unplugged".... hmm, why it recognize it when I unplug it !?

Code:
inux:/home/heart # /etc/init.d/bluetooth status
Checking service bluetooth (enabled) :
      hcid  (activated)                                               running
      hidd  (activated)                                               running

Exact same problem

I've got a belkin f8t003 ver 2 usb dongle. I get these lines in the messages log

Code:
Nov 25 19:22:51 linux hcid[15612]: HCI dev 0 unregistered Nov 25 19:22:51 linux kernel: usb 1-1: USB disconnect, address 2 Nov 25 19:22:57 linux kernel: usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3 Nov 25 19:22:57 linux hcid[15612]: HCI dev 0 registered Nov 25 19:23:03 linux kernel: hci_cmd_task: hci0 command tx timeout
and the "bluetooth unplugged" message when removed.

It seems as hough the kbluetooth program stalls untill I remove the dongle, if you click the grey icon while the dongle is inserted, nothing happens until you remove the dongle.

I also get three "Could not connect to sdp server" warnings that I used to get on Suse 9.3, but on that Suse the bluetooth got initialized right after the last warning.

SuSE made considerable changes in the are of auto-mounting. When I first installed 10.0 there were some quirks with USB memory sticks. It was possible for Linux to remember a stick was plugged in but get confused about permissions. Removing the stick and plugging it back in brought everything into sync. It would appear that updates via SuSE watcher have fixed that problem. So I have two suggestions 1st have you been updating? 2nd will re-inserting after removal get it to work?

Two things , Heart ,

Does the Light on Dongle Blinks , [ If it has Light ]

Second, please , can you specify what are connecting to the system through Bluetooth Dongle ?

You look fully familiar with Bluetooth Functioning in Linux.

So if you can not sort it out then.........

any way, I think i may help you if you illustrate a little more your problem........

Regards.

@Be.Gurmeet.Be
I think I'm one little move away from goal...

I've tried it in the console...

- plugged in my usb bluetooth stick (light blinks on the stick)
- then
Code:
# hciconfig
hci0:   Type: USB
        BD Address: 00:00:00:00:00:00 ACL MTU: 0:0 SCO MTU: 0:0
        DOWN
        RX bytes:0 acl:0 sco:0 events:0 errors:0
        TX bytes:0 acl:0 sco:0 commands:0 errors:0
- then
Code:
linux:/home/heart # hciconfig hci0 up
linux:/home/heart # hciconfig -a
hci0:   Type: USB
        BD Address: 00:02:72:82:16:81 ACL MTU: 192:8 SCO MTU: 64:8
        UP RUNNING PSCAN ISCAN
        RX bytes:77 acl:0 sco:0 events:9 errors:0
        TX bytes:31 acl:0 sco:0 commands:8 errors:0
        Features: 0xff 0xff 0x0f 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00
        Packet type: DM1 DM3 DM5 DH1 DH3 DH5 HV1 HV2 HV3
        Link policy:
        Link mode: SLAVE ACCEPT
        Name: 'EBL'
        Class: 0x000000
        Service Classes: Unspecified
        Device Class: Miscellaneous,
        HCI Ver: 1.1 (0x1) HCI Rev: 0x20d LMP Ver: 1.1 (0x1) LMP Subver: 0x20d
        Manufacturer: Cambridge Silicon Radio (10)

linux:/home/heart # hcitool scan
Scanning ...
        00:0E:07:85:94:A3       K700i
^^^looks really good I think... (K700i is my mobile phone from Sony Ericsson)

Then I want to do the last step

Code:
# rfcomm connect 0 00:0E:07:85:94:A3 1
Can't connect RFCOMM socket: Resource temporarily unavailable
..but this doesn't work.

Shouldn't come now the pin request?! So only one step left I think..

If you have an idea please let me know!

Thanks

I don't know if you have control over bluetooth timeouts. You might look at making timeouts longer. Its not beyond possible that the default connect timeout is too short.

Perhaps:
- make sure that rfcomm and l2cap are loaded as modules
- make sure udev is running/enabled
- tail -f /var/log/syslog
- hcitool info 00:0E:07:85:94:A3
... and post the log messages

Hmmm, played again and again with the pin file and also in yast - bluetooth with secrets disabled and enabled it again, restartet bluetooth service.... and so on...

Then obex push (send file from pc) worked and also after some testing the obex ftp from konqueror worked. Now I also can make my rfcomm0 .....

The only thing which doesn't work is when I try to send a file from my phone to the pc the phone says "send" but at my pc I don't get a dialog which ask me how to store this file. So it goes to nirvana I think...

As said from konqueror-obex-ftp I come to my phone folder structure and can copy files from handy to pc!

Heart,

Bluetooth has protocols which are subject to the variability of software. Your phone may be the culprit or perhaps Linux needs to be a bit more forgiving of Bluetooth protocols. OpenSuSE may want to look into this. Why not report it as a potential bug. Excuse my curiosity, but are you a Brit? The UK is the only place I remember hearing a cell phone called a handy.

dear heart,

so far as concern to the files which sent successfully to your System from Phone

Check ;

/var/lib/bluetooth

Directory

all the successfully sent files will be there.


usually , Linux does not show any progress bar while file is being transferred to system.

any thing else.


regards....................

Just Explain, if any thing else you are find wrong with Linux.

THANKS, didn't know that... The files are in there

Is there a config file where I can change this directory (for example that send files were transfered to my home directory)?
