Bluetooth on HP Laptop

Postby Drake2k on Sun Jun 08, 2008 4:42 pm

I have an HP 6230 with integrated Wireless Network and Bluetooth card.
I'm not exactly sure how to get blue tooth to pair with my bluetooth phone.
Running on Elyssa
Kernel 2.6.24-16-generic Ubuntu Release 8.04 (Hardy)

I have the bluetooth manager icon in my system tray and when I right click on it, I can get choose preferences and about. Send File and Browse Device are greyed out.

I've tried the following and here are the results.
Code: Select all
 $ dmesg | grep Blue
[   98.769841] Bluetooth: Core ver 2.11
[   98.770854] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized
[   98.770860] Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized
[   39.548821] Bluetooth: L2CAP ver 2.9
[   39.548826] Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized
[   39.599139] Bluetooth: RFCOMM socket layer initialized
[   39.599149] Bluetooth: RFCOMM TTY layer initialized
[   39.599151] Bluetooth: RFCOMM ver 1.8
[   62.665949] Bluetooth: BNEP (Ethernet Emulation) ver 1.2
[   62.665953] Bluetooth: BNEP filters: protocol multicast


Code: Select all
 $ sudo hid2hci
[sudo] password for drake:
No devices in HCI mode found


Code: Select all
 $ hcitool inq
Inquiring ...
Inquiry failed.: No such device



Any help would be greatly appreciated.

PS( the bluetooth works fine in windows. I only say this as to show that the device works fine NOT because I have any intention of using windows ever again. *grin*)

Open terminal, make your phone discoverable and type the following:

hcitool scan

What was your outcome?
