Re: RPi 3 bluetooth - cannot connect keyboard

Hi Lee, thank you for reporting the "whole story"... :oops: So it was "a good idea" to tell you that specific "Services" line... 8-) It's a little bit of mystic, of course, and I don't know if anyone else is encouraged now to try it out. Nevertheless you are satisfied now.... :? What is the "startin...

Re: RPi 3 bluetooth - cannot connect keyboard

Re: RPi 3 bluetooth - cannot connect keyboard

Hi Lee, ... and don't forget to update/upgrade the whole system before trying the BT connection to be sure you're using the latest drivers and so... BT on RPi 3 is very new (as the RPi 3 by itself) and so it could take some time to solve all the "starting" problems... Did you try to connect your BT ...

Re: RPi 3 bluetooth - cannot connect keyboard

Hi lmoss30 , again, sorry that I don't have the solution for your (specific ?) problem... Another question: did you start from a fresh (actual) Raspbian-Jessie image? How about " sudo apt-get update / sudo apt-get upgrade " before configuring that BT connection? May be you completed all these things...

Re: RPi 3 bluetooth - cannot connect keyboard

Hi lmoss30 , that "info" file is accessable for a super user only. Sorry for the "short form" of my hint... :? To see it's content (while you're logged in as "pi" user for example) you should type the following command into the console window: sudo nano /var/lib/bluetooth/id1/id2/info to open it usi...

Re: RPi 3 bluetooth - cannot connect keyboard

... if everything runs fine, there is an info file at /var/lib/bluetooth/id1/id2/info where id1 ID-code of the RPi's BT controller id2 ID-code of the BT keyboard You get access only during a root session or using the "sudo command". Could you have a look into that file (if it exists already)? Frank

Re: RPi 3 bluetooth - cannot connect keyboard

... of course, I know! But the idea behind was, that the BT keyboard isn't patiently enough, forgets its mission because of a delay from you... ;)
