Talk:How to setup Bluetooth

From ThinkWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The page is full of non-thinkpad info. And to be honest, I don’t feel like writing a single line without removing that beforehand.

I just wanted to write down my experiences using Bluetooth to connect my Nokia N70 to my Thinkpad T43, using Gentoo Linux. I'm not sure if ThinkWiki is the right place for this. Feel free to point me into another direction.

indeed ThinkWiki is not exactly the right place since the information has not very much to do with ThinkPads in particular. However, since we are missing any Bluetooth documentation at the time, I'm going to give this page a reasonable title and will do some reformatting later on. Please read Help:Editing.

I renamed the page to reflect the idea of having it as a general Bluetooth setup howto. The first two sections are already generic enough for that. Connecting to a mobile phone should be a section in this page, like it is at current state in the serial connection section. I think that's fine, since you might want to connect to other modem like devices through serial over bluetooth and the procedure should be the same. Hence, lets structure this page in "applications" like "serial over bluetooth", "obex file transfer" etc., very much as it is now. However, things still need to be improved.

Why does BT_RFCOMM can not be made a module? There is no explanation anywhere in the text for that note...

It's an information the original author took from an external HOWTO. Don't know about it but was always wondering myself. If anyone can prove this wrong, please remove the note.

I'm using BT_RFCOMM as a module with my BTA-6030 USB dongle. I expect the same with a one built-in Thinkpads.

The recent addition regarding file mounting and fuse, while accurate, was added without regard for the duplicate information in the article (was just "pasted" on top.) It makes the article long and confusing. I'll revise, and am open to comments. gsmenden 11:43, 24 September 2006 (EST)

Bluetooth bonding

This HOWTO doesn't address the concept of bonding and how to do it using the Bluez stack. Without this, many new users are going to get confused because even elementary BT operations cannot be executed. Achitnis 07:36, 10 December 2006 (CET)

Yeah, and as thinkwiki is not a bluetooth wiki, let’s keep it like that! --Siemer (talk) 15:30, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
