John Doe,
Now that you have dbus working, your bluez-libs/dbus dotpets will be a useful resource for anyone wanting to use any form of bluetooth device with Puppy.

Are these dotpets available for download?

You attached bluez/dbus packages a month ago here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=104108#104108
but at that stage, dbus was not compiled with the important options "--prefix=/usr --localstatedir=/usr"
Am I correct?

Agreed. Assuming that it works. I have no idea still. Maybe if someone tests it successfully Barry would drop it in 2.16b. (*edit, make that 2.18a. I didn't read his blog before I posted here)

I attached them. I'm about 99.999% sure that's them. It's getting a bit messy here. There was one other folder with pets but that one was pre-tweaking.

btw, they are FULL packages. Not optimized in anyway. All headers, locale, etc...

Yes. I removed those just now and linked to this thread.

Thanks for the "knowledge management" Wink

The config changes I mentioned were in dbus config. Looks like there is actually a bluetooth config file in there somewhere during my poking around. I have no idea what it does or if it's even important.

I dropped the /dev/rfcomm0 in bluez-libs. It should have the right permissions, if what was posted before was correct.

Very nice.
I think these packages deserve a separate thread titled "Bluetooth support in Puppy".

I am currently helping develop a Puppy-based derivative with Raffy and Pakt which includes Claws Mail. Thanks to your troubleshooting, I have now expanded Claws Mail's features to include Palm/J-Pilot/bluetooth compatibility.
... but like you, I have no bluetooth device to test with. Crying or Very sad

Yes, the rfcomm0 device node is needed for bluetooth connections,
and /dev/rfcomm must be configured in the J-Pilot preferences ... or symlinked to /dev/pilot

Regarding Palm connections via USB, Puppy needs to have these 2 device nodes created -

mknod /dev/ttyUSB0 c 188 0
mknod /dev/ttyUSB1 c 188 1

Just to say thanx John Doe for this sfs file. I can now sync with my Navman. (Been trying to do this for a while.) This was the last thing I needed windows for so now I can get rid of Bills crap altogether! Very Happy

I followed a link in Raffy's sig the other night and saw that site. Nice thin client. Great to know people can expand it's usability while we learn together.

Thanks. I'll drop that in pilot-link-0.12.2.pet for the final. I seem to recall reading that somewhere. Also looked up fusermount/palm info but ran into a wall on compiling the palm sdk under puppy. Needed sometype of server running on the palm to make the connection.

Have you tested these? I thought I read somewhere that in the 2.6.x kernel usb went under /dev/usb (ormaybe I have that backwards?).

rename it and it should work fine.

@all

after a few months of deliberation i've decided to go get a new phone with WM5. i'll redo this squash soon with the latest libs and make sure it works also.
