hi the first step you have to start bluetooth daemon, console: sh rc.bluetooth start after this you can open the program and try to pairing the devices after scanning,try and report here if work or not.

hi there, thanks for your help.

This is what I have done in terminal so far but have no successful results (p.s. is terminal the same as console?)

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ sh rc.bluetooth
sh: rc.bluetooth: No such file or directory
guest@porteus:~$ su
Password: 
root@porteus:/home/guest# sh rc.bluetooth
sh: rc.bluetooth: No such file or directory
root@porteus:/home/guest# grep bin /tmp/usm/bluez-4.99-x86_64-3.xzm
root@porteus:/home/guest# grep bin /tmp/usm/blueman-r708-x86_64-3.xzm
root@porteus:/home/guest# sh rc.bluetooth
sh: rc.bluetooth: No such file or directory
root@porteus:/home/guest#

hi linuxtothebone ,you have do this like root,you can't run the system script like guest, or if you want have to use su command in console, su ask you the root password and you can run as root for this task.ps:sorry you have change the directory in console cd /etc/rc.d/ in this directory you have a lot of system script and also rc. bluetooth
