Bluetooth Pairing Problems
#1
Hey Guys,

I have some problems to pair my BT keyboard.
I am using Debian Jessie with Mate DE [3.10.102 BSP 2] by Lenny Raposo.
My keyboard is a Rapoo e6700. BT is the on Board modul.
My problem is, I can pair the device but a second later it is disconnected.
The keyboard works fine with other devices like iPad oder Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Can someone help me?

Thanks Sebastian

I've only been on this board about 15 minutes, but I've had good luck with bluetoothctl on my Pis.  Blueman is awful.  Bluetoothctl will show the status: there's paired, trusted, connected, maybe one other.  They all have to be on.  When you enable the agent it asks for the number you have to enter on the keyboard.

My new rock64 is still in China but I'm used to shooting my mouth off and offering useless advice.  Been using Debian about 10 years.  I have 3 Pi 3B's, 2 Zeros, a Pocket Beagle.

Just means we'll have to keep a tight leash on you!  Tongue Big Grin But, yes, IIRC, bluetoothctl is the way to go... I actually think blueman doesn't even work properly or something...

The first problem the OP has is that is a very old image... would have been much better off with the debian jessie images from github and installing the desktop GUI, or installing the ready to roll xenial mate images.

But regardless... Bluetooth and Linux generally seems to be a bit... hit and miss at times... moreso with some of these ARM devices...
