[Bug 1510570] Re: BLE pairing fail


I have followed Nahum's overview of steps and not had much success.

It does at least claim to be paired now, but not actually doing
anything. Tried pairing from scratch several times, sometimes it pairs
and sometimes doesn't.

In my case there was no 50-bluetooth-hci-auto-poweron.rules file to
remove, so is it possible I'm missing something?

  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
