Bug Description

Binary package hint: bluez

I have a Logitech DiNovo Edge bluetooth keyboard with the following bluetooth dongle:

Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub (part of BCM2046 Bluetooth)

This keyboard worked in 9.10, and I migrated to 10.10, and it fails to pair. Any attempts to use hidd --connect <address> fails with "Can't get device information: Host is down" message.

i also get plenty of these in the syslog:

bluez_manager_bdaddr_removed_cb: assertion `bdaddr != NULL' failed

I know the keyboard is functional, I can successfully pair it with my macbook and it works fine.

Also, I used to get these messages when trying to pair with the gui interface, but I can't seem to get them anymore:

This is reported against an old version of Ubuntu and many things has changed since then. Because of that we won't fix this issue however if this behavior repeats on a modern version please fill a bug report against it and we will take it from there.
