Bluetooth keyboards which doesn't support HID

There exists several bluetooth keyboards which doesn't support the normal HID protocol. This means you can not simply use "hidd --connect 11:22:33:44:55:66". I've searched the net a bit and found this: http://www.handhelds.org/moin/moin.cgi/kbdd. The program kbdd seems like the thing to use. The source code is available. I'm not able to test this program myself as I do not have a Neo yet. EsbenDamgaard 22:10, 16 August 2007 (CEST)


Phone does not detect laptop

If running hcitool scan on the phone does not detect your laptop, check if ISCAN is enabled on the laptop by typing hciconfig and seeing the output.Like in the following output ISCAN is not enabled.

       hci0:   Type: USB
               BD Address: 00:19:7E:E5:C2:2F ACL MTU: 1017:8 SCO MTU: 64:8
               UP RUNNING PSCAN 
               RX bytes:1651 acl:0 sco:0 events:42 errors:0
               TX bytes:368 acl:0 sco:0 commands:31 errors:0

It is not enabled by default on Ubuntu Edgy systems.

If it is not then either type : hciconfig hci0 piscan

Also you can permanently fix this bug by doing the following steps on the laptop:

1. Add "discovto 0;" to the device section of hcid.conf file in /etc/bluetooth.

2. Remove all the files present in /var/lib/bluetooth

3. Restart Bluetooth

4. Check hciconfig and ISCAN will be enabled.Deepank 20:21, 22 August 2007
