[Bug 1510570] Re: BLE pairing fail


Hi Guilhem,

Did what you said:

Add your PPA:
        sudo add-apt-repository ppa:guilhem-fr/bluez-autoenable
        sudo apt-get update
        sudo apt-get upgrade

modified the main.conf
        sudo gvim /etc/bluetooth/main.conf
	    change line 67 from    #[Policy]    into   [Policy]
            change line 89 from    #AutoEnable=false   into   AutoEnable=true

remove file 50-bluetooth-hci-auto-poweron.rules located in /lib/udev/rules.d
	I just changed its name…


The BT panel sais that the device is connected. Yet, mouse does not move
the cursor....

Any insights?
Maybe I did it wrong?

  BLE pairing fail

Status in bluez package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On 15.10 we now have bluez 5 so we can pair BLE devices like the
  Microsoft Arc Touch Bluetooth Mouse.

  But this pairing doesn't work very well. Mouse is seen but pairing fail.
  More information: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=104011#c5

  This is due to udev rule that use "hcitool" to power on device.
  Hopefully, bluez 5.35 has a new parameter "AutoEnable" who can be used instead of udev rules.

  here is a commit with this parameter: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~guilhem-fr/bluez/autoenable/revision/138
  And a ppa to test it: https://code.launchpad.net/~guilhem-fr/+archive/ubuntu/bluez-autoenable
