Re: Bluetooth Python script.

Hello, Just in case it might help someone here (as this is the original thread I was reading and trying to solve as I also encountered too many issues trying to get 'rfcomm' working on 'newer' bluez versions - I'm using 5.45 - *without using deprecated tools* and seeing quite a few queries on this t...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

Thanks, my CSR 4.0 dongle arrives tomorrow, it will be interesting to see what problems it solves. I did some more tests on my Nexus 5 using Bluetooth internet through a CSR 4.0 dongle (looks similar to the link you posted - mine looks like: http://www.clearevo.com/bluetooth_usb_dongle/bluetooth_4_...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

Thanks Douglas, Baz - I did the same for my computer - sudo apt-get remove blueman - that should be enough.

As for my Ubuntu - I also did: sudo apt-get remove gnome-bluetooth (for anyone trying on Ubuntu - but the Raspbian with Graphics is unrelated - LXDE).

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

I'm about to start this myself after having just started with the bluetooth and Pi. Question though, would bonjour still work a-la my hostapd config? If Pi is my Access point and I set it up as per the tutorial, would I still be able to get to it via pi.local? Do I need a local DHCP and iptables co...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

Hey guys, so I got EcoDroidLink up and running and have successfully paired and used internet on my android device over bluetooth. But I was wondering if it would be possible to assign a static ip address to eth0. I have attempted but the script fails to fully run. Is it possible? Also, how can I m...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

That error is caused by another bluetooth agent running. You'll need to kill just that agent, not the bluetooth service itself. It might be called 'blueman'. Or you can try listing all running bluetooth processes with ps aux | grep blue and killing anything that looks like it might be a Bluetooth a...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

Dear Baz, Thanks for trying it out! Thanks, happy new year and happy holidays too! Normally I develop by using a serial interface, or running autostart/headless or running directly as a computer (not via SSH over eth0 - I normally disable SSH, for security, for the SD-Card order/releases of EcoDroid...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

Kasidit, That's a ton of good information, thank you. I'm not seeing the dmesg error you mentioned, but it looks suspiciously like what I'm seeing in /var/log/messages (NETDEV WATCHDOG: bnep0 (): transmit queue 0 timed out). The only other BT dongle I have is an IOGear 2.1 based on the Broadcom chi...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

Greetings Douglas, Regarding the 0.5 Mbps issue, I have faced the issue once - although I didn't find the cause of it but it was resolved when I changed the Bluetooth dongle to a newer CSR 4.0 USB Bluetooth dongle... it was written/printed CSR 4.0 on the dongle it self. Then I can get the optimum 1....

Re: RPi Bluetooth PAN

This is a great idea - to use a tablet to ssh into a Pi via Bluetooth PAN. I humbly suggest to modify the bluez-test-nap by putting an infinite loop around the "time.sleep(1000)" - in my code I replace it with: while (1): time.sleep(30) just to make sure the nap service runs forever - otherwise, in ...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

By the way, to continue the discussion of why one would want to use a Bluetooth Access Point... Apart from the miracast use-case suggested by Basil_R, another obvious use-case or benefit of using Bluetooth wireless internet (instead of WIFI) is its lower power-consumption. In theory, Bluetooth consu...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

I'm sure that tutorial wasn't too complicated once you have the python-dbus working correctly. It's not really. Using wlan0 instead of eth0 is a bit different, and also when using Raspian, you'll need to 'sudo apt-get install bridge-utils' yourself. And here's another tip that would have saved me 3...

After catching a second wind and attacking this again, I think I licked it. In fact I'm typing this on my phone, connected via Bluetooth to a Raspberry Pi access point connected via WiFi to my router and out over the internet. It's a bit of an awkward process but it works.Gonna see if I can automat...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

Dear Basil_R,

Let's try Douglas's suggestion - let's try a fresh new Raspbian install and then try the test-nap to see if it passes this dbus issue.

I remember doing it on Raspbian too - let's try this and I'm happy to help - it should be simple once you pass this dbus import issue.

Re: Bluetooth

Not sure but If it's about generic confirmation, Try the 'bluez-simple-agent' and you can make a modified version to reply yes and run/autostart it to automate your task.
