I haven't installed lucid 528 yet - first thing to check it it has the needed bluetooth kernel modules in /lib/modules/2.6.39.4/kernel/net/bluetooth
(2.6.39.4 will be different number as Lucid pup uses different kernel)
bluetooth.ko bnep hidp rfcomm modules are needed for bluetooth.

If if is just simple file transer you are after:
Dpup bluetooth.pet worked in Lucid 525 so if the needed modules are included in 528 that this .pet will probably work in Lucid 528 as well.

Install bluetooth.pet > reboot.

Installed Lucid puppy 528 this morning - I was unsure if they did or not but just to confirm the bluetooth .pet and mount tool i posted above both work in Lucid 528

now I did things form your first post under to run blueman, if bluez is not running... and it works now Smile
thank you for your help Smile

I have only 2 questions now:
1. is there a way to put
Quote:
#!/bin/sh
dbus-uuidgen --ensure &
dbus-daemon --system
modprobe bluetooth
modprobe l2cap
modprobe rfcomm
modprobe btusb
hciconfig hci0 up
hciconfig hci0 class 0x3e0100
mknod -m 666 /dev/rfcomm0 c 216 0
bluetoothd
mkdir /root/a
hcitool scan
blueman-applet

in a file so I don't have to type it every time?
2. is there a way to run hciconfig without typing /usr/local/sbin/hciconfig ?

XXX-man,
In ROX create new script file and give it the name you want.
Copy what is in your quote to this file.
You can execute that new script then.

@xxxman

I'm glad you finally get it running.

now about your question...
1. create a file named... blueman-start in /root/startup
Quote:
#!/bin/sh
dbus-uuidgen --ensure &
dbus-daemon --system
modprobe bluetooth
modprobe l2cap
modprobe rfcomm
modprobe btusb
/usr/local/sbin/hciconfig hci0 up
/usr/local/sbin/hciconfig hci0 class 0x3e0100
mknod -m 666 /dev/rfcomm0 c 216 0
bluetoothd
mkdir /root/a
hcitool scan
blueman-applet


2. yes
a. recompile the source because i wrongly put into usr/local... Sorry about that...
b. maybe you can link... drag it into where it should be and create link
c. as no 1 will it run for you automatically...
d. something about .basrc... http://home.ubalt.edu/abento/linux/terminal/addtopath.html


EDIT: info added to first post

PostPosted: Wed 12 Sep 2012, 18:03    Post subject: blueman121.528.pet wiped out X, it appears  

When I downloaded blueman121.528.pet and then clicked on it in the ROX filer, I got a quick message that the package manager was processing it. Then I noticed my menus would not come up. After that I tried rebooting, and now I have no X window manager: it tries to come up, but returns to the # prompt. I also tried this on the Live version running on the USB stick, and the same symptom happened with the menus.

So now I have a messed up eeesave.2fs. Sad I suspect it is the menu tables that are corrupted.

I did try to uninstall the pet from the # prompt with a script presented elsewhere on this forum. The uninstall command would see the pet file amongst the others I have downloaded, but when I tried to actually uninstall, I got a blizzard of error messages.

So where do I go from here?

The iso I started my puppy from is Puppeee-1.0-atom.iso. I believe it is lucid 5.28.

I don't think I have the XFCE window manager (it's just pretty much stock puppee and doesn't look like the XFCE screen scans I found on the internet). So when I follow the alternative, I end up at a list of .pets to download in a 2009-ish thread at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=396249. From what I was reading of the blueman thread of which this post is a part, I thought a lot of the work had been done since 2009. So am I barking down the right hole or not? Just want to verify before I download all those pets and try to install them. Question

Crying or Very sad Well, I downloaded all the pets and installed them, even the updated obex pets mentioned towards the end of one of the threads. No bluetooth icon anywhere. When I plug in the USB bluetooth dongle, the eeePC seems to get wind of it since the USB stick that puppee is running on does flash like it is being accessed.

Any ideas? I tried "dbus-uuidgen --ensure &" as recommended in the X init file, but still no bluetooth icon. I think dbus-uuidgen is already running anyways, as listed in the process display.

Frankly, a lot of those pets look like they're meant for an older version of puppee, like v4.31 or somesuch. I believe my puppee is v5.28.

I'm seriously thinking of trying the XFCE window manager, since it seems as if the blueman install is much simpler. Thoughts?

Thanks in advance,
Chuck

@chursch
the bluetooth icon is missing but if the bluetooth is blinking then it should work.
you should try opening the blueman-applet and run search device.

btw alwaysone already wrote his how to in xfce.

Master_wrong: Don't see any bluetooth/man icon anywhere, so don't know how to start the blueman applet. Is it that sequence of commands that I've seen go by in this thread every once in awhile, like hcitool...?

yes
to run blueman, run blueman-applet

but you can run all these
Quote:

#!/bin/sh
dbus-uuidgen --ensure &
dbus-daemon --system
modprobe bluetooth
modprobe l2cap
modprobe rfcomm
modprobe btusb
/usr/local/sbin/hciconfig hci0 up
/usr/local/sbin/hciconfig hci0 class 0x3e0100
mknod -m 666 /dev/rfcomm0 c 216 0
bluetoothd
mkdir /root/a
hcitool scan
blueman-applet



run them in terminal.

did you read alwaysalonee post ?

after running blueman-applet you can see the blueman icon which actually an missing icon symbol. just click on it.

@Master_wrong: Thanks for the terminal lines - that is what I was looking for. But your first line "to run blueman, run blueman-applet" makes me feel like I don't need to do those terminal lines - is that correct? I don't recall seeing any blueman-applet. But this evening I will be on the eeePC where the Puppy lives, and I will try these things out.

Yes, I read alwaysalonee's post, the Nov. 30, 2012 one. That's how I got into all the .deb downloading, and led to my posts on Dec. 5 and 17.
