[bluetooth] Connecting to Apple BT keyboard fails due to PIN prompt
Status in Canonical System Image:
Status in bluez package in Ubuntu:
Status in ubuntu-system-settings package in Ubuntu:
Connecting to the latest generation Apple BT keyboard ( the one with
the USB port & no batteries ) fails on an Ubuntu Touch device, as when
you press the "Connect" button on the device page, a dialog titled
"Bluetooth Pairing Request" is displayed, with the following text:
Please confirm that the PIN displayed on 'Magic Keyboard' matches this
The dialog has "Cancel" and "Confirm PIN" buttons.
The keyboard has no display on which a PIN could be displayed.
When using other devices ( Ubuntu Desktop 15.10, 16.04, Android, OS X,
... ) to connect this keyboard all that's necessary is to click/press
the 'Connect' button in the appropriate place, and the keyboard
automatically connects, and is usable with no other actions required
from the user.
Reproduced on krillin ( rc-proposed/bq-aquris.en/270 ) which has bluez
Reproduced on arale ( rc-proposed/meizu.en/258 ) which has bluez 5.37
installed from silo 39.
Note, after dismissing the dialog, subsequent attempts to connect may
not re-display the PIN dialog, instead nothing happens. I've found
that this requires power cycling the keyboard to clear and cause the
PIN dialog to be displayed again.
