Does it not ask your for the pass key when you try to pair the two?

So what exactly happens when you try to pair the headset? Does it give you an error?

Sorry for asking an obvious question, but are you first putting the headset into pairing mode?

i hold with 8 second, then use bluetooth applet to search it. after see the devices, i directly connect it. i say the message write using 0000 key to connect that devices. after that it display failed to paring that devices.

but the device is using key "8888". not "0000".

it's really work. it will prompt a message tell me to input the pin.

There is also the option of applying a patch that will allow you to enter any pin:

USE AT YOUR OWN RISK

1) download this patch:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... omments/86

2) apply it:

Just download the source of bluez-gnome:

Code: Select all

apt-get source bluez-gnome


Go to the source path of the wizard:

Code: Select all

cd bluez-gnome-1.8/wizard


Copy wizardhack.diff to here and apply the patch

Code: Select all

patch main.c < wizardhack.diff


Configure and build everything, but only install the wizard

Code: Select all

cd ..


Code: Select all

./configure

You probably will need these binaries:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libdbus-glib-1-dev libgtk2.0-dev gconf2 libgconf2-dev libnotify1 libnotify-dev


Code: Select all

make


Code: Select all

cd wizard


Code: Select all

sudo make install


Reboot

I'm using the 64 bit version now, but I just edited the instructions and included all of the dependencies that were asked for.
