Linux Mint Maya Mate 64bit
Processor: AM3+ FX 4130 / AM3+ FX 4300
Motherboard: GA-78LMT-SP2 / GA-78LMT-SP2 AM3+
I had Linux Mate 15 on my machine for about 4 days, and with a wireless USB dongle (4.0); I was able to connect and use my Apple wirless keyboard, iPod, iPad with no issues. I decided to go with Linux 13, I discovered the USB donlge 4.0 I used with Mint 15 wasn't going to work in Mint 13. I had USB bluetooth dongle 3.0 and with the blueman manager I was able to pair my iPod and iPad with no issue, but the keyboard, no. These are my issues.
1. Apple Keyboard has an E before the mask number: Apple Wireless Keyboard ( E8:aa:bb:cc:dd;ee) Service: Human Interface Device Service (HID)
2. When Bluetooth ask for Authentication iT says to: Always accept, Accept, or Deny
When I say Always accept nothing happens. I then attempt to set-up the keyboard via the Bluetooth Assistant window. I'm able to see my Apple Wireless Keyboard and it has an red circle with a line through icon before the keyboard icon. I try to pair the keyboard anyway, a 4 digit number comes up but the "Forward" option remains "gray" and in a couple of seconds, "fail to add" device.
This is what I've discovered so far...
After going into the terminal I got this...
1. studio1@studio1-GA-78LMT-USB3 ~ $ hidd --connect E8:06:88:5A:A0:55
HID create error 13 (Permission denied)
2. When I moved my USB dongle to another port I recieved this message.
Device 'Apple Wireless Keyboard' (E8:06:88:5A:A0:55) wants access to the service '00001124-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb'.
I've search the web and the only thing I came upon was this site called Meta GetaGer http://code.metager.de/source/xref/linu ... z/lib/uuid. From what I can tell it gives a list of error codes and possible patches? I'm not for sure because I'm a novice, it stiil Greek (for now) to me. If you scroll down to # 89 you'll see the same error code as my keyboard.
89#define HID_UUID "00001124-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb
Is this a possible solution or fix to my issue with pairing my keyboard via bluetooth? If it is, what does this number mean and how would I go about using this patch? That is if it is a patch. Thank you for any assistance you can give me, I apologize if my post is long winded.
