I'm running Raspbian. I don't consider myself advanced (Though I've written a couple of I2C libraries...)
Still, this seems like a very basic problem.
I've paired and trusted my phone using bt-device and bt-adapter.
Once I do this, and my phone leaves discovery mode, the R-Pi can no longer see my phone. It is still paired and trusted (Verified).
I've set up and run "btminder" by Douglas6 (http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewt ... er#p601421), which seems to be running without issue. However, it's not registering an event with the phone when I bring it in and out of range.
What I want is for my phone to automatically connect to my R-Pi whenever it is in range. Eventually I want to be able to measure the strength of the bluetooth connection with my R-Pi and log it, without any interaction on my part.
Am I deluded about how bluetooth works? (Here's the "Beginners" question!)
I pulled down Py-Bluez, but I wanted to get the basics working on their own, before I started mucking around. Am I doing it wrong? Should I just start getting into the muck?
