bluetooth dongle running but blueman wont find it

Postby melg2019 » 2019-02-04 20:39

Hi again. I've put code tags in

Im trying to use a bluetooth usb dngle which is advertised as suitable for raspberry pi. The dongle is recognised by the computer but will not work with bluez and blueman

Dongle
Bluegiga BLED112 usb bluetooth dongle running factory default “usbcdc” firmware

computer
Packard Bell EasyNote TK36/SJV52_MV, BIOS V1.13 04/26/2011
debian buster kernel 4.19.0-1. LXDE

I have the exact same experience on an Asus x550ca running Stretch kernel 4.9 LXDE

I've installed the non free firmware bundle which contains drivers for the Intel 8051 chip in the dongle.

I have followed advice from loads of forums and tried both workarounds in the debian bluetooth wiki,
all without success

The computer finds dongle. Dongle has own bluetooth stack. Will run Jeff Rowberg's python scanner script on github as root. See terminal output below

But blueman wont find the dongle.
It says bluez wont start, please insert a dongle

Ive tried stopping and restarting Pulseaudio and bluetoothd, no luck

This is a link to the mfrs guide to using dongle with a raspberry pi
https://docs-emea.rs-online.com/webdocs ... 2eb651.pdf

My questions:
Is the problem with blueman because the dongle is busy with its built in software?

what do I have to do to make blueman recognise it?

Can I ever expect the dongle to work with a bluetooth speaker?

Bluetooth Smart Scanner script for Bluegiga BLED112 v2013-03-30

Options:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit

  Serial Port Options:
    -p PORT, --port=PORT
                        Serial port device name (default /dev/ttyACM0)
    -b BAUD, --baud=BAUD
                        Serial port baud rate (default 115200)

  Scan Options:
    -i INTERVAL, --interval=INTERVAL
                        Scan interval width in units of 0.625ms (default 200)
    -w WINDOW, --window=WINDOW
                        Scan window width in units of 0.625ms (default 200)
    -a, --active        Perform active scan (default passive)
                        NOTE: active scans result in a 'scan response' request
                        being sent to the slave device, which should send a
                        follow-up scan response packet. This will result in
                        increased power consumption on the slave device.

  Filter Options:
    -u UUID, --uuid=UUID
                        Service UUID(s) to match
    -m ADDRESS, --mac=ADDRESS
                        MAC address(es) to match
    -r RSSI, --rssi=RSSI
                        RSSI minimum filter (-110 to -20), omit to disable

  Output Options:
    -q, --quiet         Quiet mode (suppress initial scan parameter display)
    -f, --friendly      Friendly mode (output in human-readable format)
    -d FIELDS, --display=FIELDS
                        Display fields and order (default 'trpsabd')
                          t = Unix time, with milliseconds
                          r = RSSI measurement (signed integer)
                          p = Packet type (0 = normal, 4 = scan response)
                          s = Sender MAC address (hexadecimal)
                          a = Address type (0 = public, 1 = random)
                          b = Bonding status (255 = no bond, else bond handle)
                          d = Advertisement data payload (hexadecimal)
Examples:

    bled112_scanner.py

   Default options, passive scan, display all devices

    bled112_scanner.py -p /dev/ttyUSB0 -d sd

   Use ttyUSB0, display only sender MAC address and ad data payload

    bled112_scanner.py -u 1809 -u 180D

   Display only devices advertising Health Thermometer service (0x1809)
   or the Heart Rate service (0x180D)

    bled112_scanner.py -m 00:07:80 -m 08:57:82:bb:27:37

   Display only devices with a Bluetooth address (MAC) starting with the
   Bluegiga OUI (00:07:80), or exactly matching 08:57:82:bb:27:37

Sample Output Explanation:

    1364699494.574 -57 0 000780814494 0 255 02010603030918

    't' (Unix time):   1364699464.574, 1364699591.128, etc.
    'r' (RSSI value):   -57, -80, -92, etc.
    'p' (Packet type):   0 (advertisement), 4 (scan response)
    's' (Sender MAC):   000780535BB4, 000780814494, etc.
    'a' (Address type):   0 (public), 1 (random)
    'b' (Bond status):   255 (no bond), 0 to 15 if bonded
    'd' (Data payload):   02010603030918, etc.

Re: bluetooth dongle running but blueman wont find it

Postby bw123 » 2019-02-06 13:25

https://wiki.debian.org/BluetoothUser
If you're using systemd:

$ systemctl status bluetooth
● bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service; enabled)
Active: active (running) since Fri 2015-01-16 21:25:19 JST; 1 day 16h ago

$ sudo systemctl start bluetooth


pls use code tags, your post is a mess. My guess would be bluetoothd isn't setup correctly.

I don't want to read your post until you clean it up according to the guidelines. However, can you form a connection manually without blueman (with bluetoothctl?)

Re: bluetooth dongle running but blueman wont find it

Postby melg2019 » 2019-02-09 13:17

Thanks for your help. Sorry I didnt do the post right.
Hopefully this one is better
When i type bluetoothctl and press enter it moves up a line but no info is displayed:
Code: Select all
mel@debian:~$ bluetoothctl


I get the same result if i type bluetooth list. I never see the line starting with bluetooth in the square brackets.
does this mean my bluetooth isnt setup?. What should I post to show you my complete bluetooth setup?
Many thanks again
Mel

First hit here says might be modemmanager conflict?
https://duckduckgo.com/html/?q=linux+Bluegiga+BLED112

The way to investigate is probably journalctl command. You can run it as root, hit the / key to search for 'blue' or 'error' or whatnot, or just page up/down/end, or grep it from the command line...
Code: Select all
# journalctl | grep blue
Feb 04 20:04:09 debian NetworkManager[984]: <info>  [1549328649.5181] Loaded device plugin: NMBluezManager (/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/NetworkManager/libnm-device-plugin-bluetooth.so)


dmesg is good too, but usually just certain kernel info and maybe it has more info that you grepped out? just run dmesg and search for Bluegiga and look near it, before and after...

I have run the journalctl command and get a large output!

Its a bit mindblowing to me.
From here do you think the BLED112 could easily work in Debian?

The article you told me about in your reply involved getting a piece of hardware, making many changes and then running the dongle under wine. This seems like a very expensive and time consuming way to make a cheap dongle work. Would i be better just spending time trying to find a dongle that does work well in Debian? If so do you know of one?
Many thanks for your help
