Raspberry Pi Bluetooth Dongle not automatically Pairing with BlueSmirf
I've setup Bluetooth on my RaspPi and attempted to connect to my BlueSmirf from sparkfun. I know this might not be the best forum to post it, but I tried every other forum/website. I Think its a linux problem (not raspberry pi)
I can send text to my BlueSmirf from the RaspberryPi using: echo "Testing" > /dev/rfcomm0
Now the red led on my BlueSmirf indicates its not paired with a device, only when I use cat /dev/rfcomm0 the raspberryPi will start a Pairing session with the BlueSmirf (and the led turns green).
I now can send and receive text from both sides, the problem is that I manually need to invoke cat /dev/rfcomm0. I would like that the RaspberryPi looks for my BlueSmirf at startsup and starts a pairing session automatically. For example on windows I pair the device and the LED turns green meaning its paired, how can I achieve the same on Linux?
Thanks a lot!
