Bug Description

Binary package hint: bluez

Hello,

when I want to connect my SE W800i mobile phone to my Asus Eee PC 1005 HA netbook i go to the bluetooth-manager gui and add it. Selecting a different than "Automatic PIN" (e.g. 0000) has no effect however. There is always a random PIN generated.

Using Ubuntu 12.04.

This is hilarious. You connect a device that doesn't even have keys (e.g. a wireless touchpad), bluetooth-wizard tells you that it it is a "Tablet" but if you use "automatic pin", it still tells you to enter a six-digit number into the *touchpad*. It should know better.

Then you select "use 0000", click next, what do you get? "Enter 518421 at the other device." :(

Then you select "use custom pin", enter 0000 yourself, click next. "Enter 518421 at the other device.". It just doesn't care what the user wants.

Where is the upstream place to report this? It has been here for years and it is really time for it to go away.

I installed "Blueman Bluetooth Manager" and am able to connect my devices. I think this is just a different front end to the Bluez Backend.

This makes me think the problem we are have is in the GUI.

also while i was trying to track this down i noticed the file "/etc/init/bluetooth.conf" line 8 "env UART_CONF=/etc/bluetooth/uart", uart does not exist as a file or directory. This may be nothing, but thought it was odd.

In Ubuntu 14.04 LTS updated each day, on ASUS N56JR, one year old.

Some weeks ago, I seen many updates about devices which give me some progress.
And I thank you very much.
Before, bluetooth never appears. After, I have bluetooth once on two reboots, but not exactly 1/2. If I needs it and that I don't have it, I can reboot once or twice and have it.

Some seconds before the end of bios boot time, there is a display shorter than one second, not always the same shape.
At the end of bios boot time, during 3 seconds the display is one of:
B0 - none messages.
B1 - 1 message starting with: "device"
B2 - 2 messages starting with: "Bluetooth"

Today I had B2 boot, and now I see the Bluetooth menu and its peripherals.
The Bluetooth menu icon is grey and not lighting.
