Here's how I pair a Logitech K810 persistently, on Debian 9 Stretch (should work on most Linux distributions).

The important thing is to do the "trust" step AFTER the "connect" step. If you get the order wrong, your connection will not persist after a reboot!

I do the following as root:
Code:
bluetoothctl -a
remove 00:1F:20:91:C7:8C
scan on
pair 00:1F:20:91:C7:8C
<type passkey on bluetooth keyboard>
connect

New features in version 170831 of SlackEX
I have replaced kernel 4.10.2-x86_64-exton with kernel 4.12.9-x86_64-exton with support for “everything”. Most important is that I have changed repositories from Slackware 14.1 to Current. I.e.

Wishing I Didn't Have to Troubleshoot as Much - Yet

Posted 08-28-2017 at 01:12 AM by des_a

I am wishing that I didn't have so much problems to just start to get the network up and running for the first version of it (version a). It seems that every time I turn around, I'm having another problem preventing me from moving forward for the time being. I would rather have that go smoothly, and then learn to troubleshoot with a working network that had already reached version a.

New ##slackware-help community support channel on Freenode

Posted 08-23-2017 at 05:58 PM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)

A new channel for providing Slackware community support has been created on Freenode.

It is similar to the previous existing ##slackware channel, in both charter and composition (a lot of the users in ##slackware-help are also in ##slackware).

The differences are mostly of tone and technology -- the new channel has a factoid-bot for easily pointing newbies to existing resources. For instance:

Code:
<ttks> !tutorial
<tiddy> ttks: https://docs.slackware.com/slackware:beginners_guide
