A piece of my mind

Pairing Bluetooth Devices

Last week I accidently left my data cable for my Nokia 6630 in Bandung, so I have to use bluetooth in my handphone and laptop to connect to the internet. I’ve manage to do all the setting by editing /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf, /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf and /etc/wvdial.conf.

The problem is i can’t get my handphone paired with my laptop. The solution is that I have to install bluez-gnome package.

$ sudo apt-get install bluez-gnome

After installed, I add bt-applet into Sessions because I want it to be run at startup. I have new menu called “Bluetooth Preferences” in System –> Preferences.
If the bt-applet already run, there will be a bluetooth icon in your taskbar.

Then I try to initiate a pairing from my handphone, this time I would like to pair my Siemens S75 with my laptop. After you key in the pin in my handphone, I get a notification like this
Bluetooth Pairing

When I click the notification, there will be a dialog for me to insert the PIN
PIN request

After I key in the same PIN I keyed in my handphone, I get another notification that my handphone is paired.
Bluetooth Paired

Now I can connect to internet using my handphone via bluetooth :)

For more info about the bluetooth configuration, you can read from ryosaeba’s blog (in Indonesian).

    I think the bt-applet gets added to the session automatically.

    @ teh Tina
    ini juga hp pinjeman :p

    @ carl
    I assume you haven’t edit your /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf
    Find you bluetooth address of your handphone and put it in /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf

    Pak Andi,
    Saya tau bp dr milis ubuntu-id. Seminggu yang lalu ubuntu 7.04 telah saya tanam pd leptop axioo vl856. Setelah sekian lama terbiasa pake “jendela”, saya ga tau dan ngerti bgmna setting utk modem dialup. Sampe hr ini sy msh belum nemu caranya. Berikut logfile yg sy copy dr GPPP.

    –> Ignoring malformed input line: “;Do NOT edit this file by hand!”
    –> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.56
    –> Cannot get information for serial port.
    –> Initializing modem.
    –> Sending: ATZ
    –> Sending: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    –> Modem initialized.
    –> Sending: ATM1L1DT080989999
    –> Waiting for carrier.
    –> No Carrier! Trying again.
    –> Sending: ATM1L1DT080989999
    –> Waiting for carrier.
    –> No Carrier! Trying again.
    –> Maximum Attempts Exceeded..Aborting!!
    –> Disconnecting at Tue Jul 17 20:31:34 2007

    Ternyata memang ada ya alternatif os selain “jendela”…bgtu liat tampilan ubuntu pertama kali langsung sy jatuh hati. Mohon pencerahannya ya pak Andi.
