[edit] Pairing Freedom Slim Keyboard with Neo Freerunner

Neo and Slim Kbd

Use

hcitool scan
hcitool dev

to know the ID of your remote and local devices

[edit] Bluez 4 method

Turn bluetooth on

mdbus -s org.freesmartphone.ousaged /org/freesmartphone/Usage org.freesmartphone.Usage.SetResourcePolicy "Bluetooth" "enabled"

simple-agent can be found at http://git.kernel.org/?p=bluetooth/bluez.git;a=blob_plain;f=test/simple-agent;hb=HEAD" remember to chmod +x simple-agent

simple-agent hci0 $REMOTE_BT_DEVICE_ID

Enter the pin code in console Enter the pin code in device simple agent will return the route to new device paired change /org/bluez/3207/hci0/dev_00_18_00_00_C2_37 with yours

mdbus -s org.bluez /org/bluez/3207/hci0/dev_00_18_00_00_C2_37 org.bluez.Input.Connect

[edit] Bluez 3 method

echo "$REMOTE_BT_DEVICE_ID $PINCODE" > /var/lib/bluetooth/$LOCAL_BT_DEVICE_ID/pincodes
dbus-send --system --type=method_call --print-reply --dest=org.bluez /org/bluez/hci0 org.bluez.Adapter.CreateBonding string:$REMOTE_BT_DEVICE_ID

put the pincode in the keyboard

hidd --connect $REMOTE_BT_DEVICE_ID 


[edit] Test on Distributions

[edit] OM2008.12 (works)

bluez dbus totally broken, unable to pair using passkey-agent or CreateBonding method see https://docs.openmoko.org/trac/ticket/2218 workaround install bluez4

opkg install python-pygobject
opkg install -force-depends -force-overwrite http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/feeds/2008/ipk/glibc/armv4t/base/bluez4_4.31-r3.1_armv4t.ipk
/etc/init.d/dbus-1 stop
/etc/init.d/bluethooth stop
/etc/init.d/dbus-1 start
/etc/init.d/bluetooth start
hciconfig hci0 up

proceed with bluez4 method but last line will be

dbus-send --system --type=method_call --print-reply --dest=org.bluez /org/bluez/789/hci0/dev_00_18_00_00_C2_37 org.bluez.Input.Connect

tested on openmoko-terminal2 and Message app. keyboard works fine but with issue #1

[edit] FSO 5.1 (does not work)

Use bluez 4 method The bonding is created succesfully but on X seems to not recive anything but if you shutdown X

/etc/init.d/xserver-nodm stop

the console is receiving the keystrokes but is printing garbage old https://docs.openmoko.org/trac/ticket/1796 bug????

[edit] SHR unstable (does not work yet)

pairing with bluez4 method works, hcidump shows activity for keypresses, however nothing is reaching the applications, and nothing shows on the terminal when the x server is stopped.

get hcidump

opkg install http://shr.bearstech.com/shr-unstable/ipk/armv4t/bluez-hcidump_1.42-r0.4_armv4t.ipk
hcidump -V

[edit] Hackable1 (works)

Use bluez 3 method tested on openmoko-terminal2 and Abiword keyboard works fine but with issue1

[edit] FYP 3.01 (works)

Downloaded from http://opensvn.csie.org/fyp/releases/3.01/ apt-get update apt-get install bluez-utils Use bluez 3 method tested on terminal keyboard works fine but with issue1

[edit] Android Koolu beta-3 (does not work)

Bluethoth scan detects the keyboard and starts the pin dialog but the software keyboard is unable to reach meanwhile the dialog is open so unable to put the pin code

[edit] Android Michael Trimarchi uImagev13+freerunnerV14.6 (does not work)

Downladed from http://www.fragcom.de/android Bluethoth scan doesn't detect anything seems to be affected by the dialog issue too

[edit] QT extended 4.3.3 (does not work)

Use bluez 3 method Download from http://dashi-x02.karadog.net/~lihouyu/qtextended/4.4.3/ Paired successfully trough gui and shh console using bluez 3 method GUI doesn't respond to keystrokes but if you shutdown qtextended you can see the typed chars in the black screen below

[edit] Debian (not tested)

has not been tested but I supose the result will be the same as Hackable1/FYP

[edit] Om2009

(actually using freedom universal but probably the same, please add a note if you try this with the slim.)

[edit] notes

Make sure you replace the device ids with your own.

The number 1540 appears to change between connections. Use the following to find out the current number:

mdbus -s org.bluez

[edit] pairing

  • switch keyboard to hid (for the universal)
  • press bluetooth button
  • copy simple agent (above) into simple-agent.py
chmod +x simple-agent.py
mdbus -s org.freesmartphone.ousaged /org/freesmartphone/Usage org.freesmartphone.Usage.SetResourcePolicy "Bluetooth" "enabled"
/etc/init.d/bluetooth start

[edit] Troubleshooting

To see the bluetooth communications:

opkg install bluez-hcidump
hcidump -V

[edit] Issues

[edit] issue 1

Just the fn+number_keys simbols don't work or prints "~" simbol but keystrokes are detected so maybe a good keyboard remap will do. Help on this will be appreciated.

This issue is not an issue but a mere misunderstanding of the labelling on the keys. The symbols above the numbers are accessed by pressing shift+number. fn+number gives you the first ten function keys. fn+R gives you F11. (2012-03-02)

issue 1

Just the fn+number_keys simbols don't work or prints "~" simbol but keystrokes are detected so maybe a good keyboard remap will do. Help on this will be appreciated
