BlueTooth Connection
« on: October 15, 2019, 07:58:39 am »
Is it me, or anything else, what went wrong?

I have different BT-Keyboards; p.e. renkforce Bluetooth Tastatur "Slim"
(in english keyboard)

Normaly; switch on Bluetooth at any OS -> search -> (on the keyboard:press ESC and "k")
than the BT-Programm ask me for pairing -> "gave me a 6-number-code" -> insert this 6 numbers (on the keyboard) and press "return"

That's it.
Doesn't matter, if it is Windows, Linux Min* or lubunt*

But on peppermint - it don want it;
After pressing/typing this 6 numbers, and than "return" nothing happend;
after a while, the programm told me: "Pairing/connection failed...

Are you typing the key on the actual keyboard that isn't paired yet .. or on a separate (say USB) keyboard ?

I do it an the BT-KeyBoard (logical, as it works , as i know, always this way);
same distance to the computer, as i do by other distris - means 50 - 70 cm distance

But how can the bluetooth keyboard work BEFORE it's paired ?

Don ask me; i am User, not a technical...

Normaly: Switch on Computer, switch on BT -> search Hardware

meanwhile other Hardware switch on-> sending BT-Signal

Computer get foreign Signal; ask for (secure) pairing / gave ya a code;
which u "type in", when it is poss , on the device, u wan add to teh "computer"

Doesn matter, if it is a mobile in the car, or the keyboard on the computer;

And on this "computer", i made the reverse test (could be, that i do something wrong);
on windows 10, Linux Mint 19.2 and lubuntu 18.04

Sending the search signal, and typing (blind) the 6 numbers, followed by return

Yep; peppermint shows very well, which devices are found
