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

connect

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.

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.

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:
