Bluetooth connectivity in Puppy Linux
Subject description: access internet from bluetooth modem from mobile
Hello, after doing many efforts now i can finally connect my mobile device to the computer with bluetooth thanks to the puppy linux forum members for all the help, so here's how it goes ..
Note that i am using lucid puppy version 5.2.8
Note : latest article would be always here :
Step 1 :
Download needed .pets from here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=396249 or from http://up.ht/IC9pnA, install all .pets and Reboot
Step 2 :
Right click Select Network -> Bluetooth Wizard , now follow on-screen steps to pair your devices.if it does not scan a bluetooth device make sure you have selected always visible or discoverable in your mobile device. if it still is not scanning make sure the bluetooth device of your computer is on and attached properly. You can check if puppy linux has detected your computer's bluetooth device in Menu->System->HardwareInfo in that select USB to check.
Step 3 :
Now navigate to the /etc/ppp from your file manager.
in ppp goto chatscripts directory, now right click and select create new file named gprs and paste following code ..
ABORT "NO CARRIER"
ABORT "NO ANSWER"
#ABORT "NO DIALTONE"
OK 'AT+cgdcont=1,"IP","enter your ISP APN here"'
you'll need to provide APN address in my case it looks like this ..
or may be even change the dial number though *99***1# should work, if not try *99#
did that ? ok, now go to ppp again and goto peers directory and right click to create new file and name it gprs and paste following code ..
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/ppp/chatscripts/gprs"
Step 4 :
Now click console icon from desktop and type hcitool scan it would be like ..
sh-4.1# hcitool scan
18:14:56:CA:9E:42 is mac address of my mobile bluetooth device and Yo is my mobile bluetooth's name copy the mac address and browse your mobile also save mac address somewhere you'll need it in next steps e.g.
sh-4.1# sdptool browse 18:14:56:CA:9E:42
Browsing 18:14:56:CA:9E:42 ...
Service Name: Dial-up networking
Service RecHandle: 0x10003
Service Class ID List:
"Dialup Networking" (0x1103)
"Generic Networking" (0x1201)
Protocol Descriptor List:
Language Base Attr List:
Profile Descriptor List:
"Dialup Networking" (0x1103)
It'll list all services your mobile provides. scroll down and find Service Name: Dial-up networking and channel number in my case it is Channel: 1, save or remember channel number you'll need it in next step.
Step 5 :
Now click file icon on desktop and right click , select create new script with name Connect and paste following code ..
mknod -m 666 /dev/rfcomm0 c 216 0
# in the following line change mac address and channel number for your phone
rfcomm bind /dev/rfcomm0 18:14:56:CA:9E:42 1
rxvt -bg "light yellow" -geometry 134x20 -title GPRS_connection_tail -e tail -n 20 -f /var/log/messages &
pppd call gprs
gxmessage -center -bg "light green" -title "PPPD calling..." -buttons "EXIT" "PPPD calling...press EXIT for exiting GPRS connection"
rfcomm release /dev/rfcomm0
kill $(ps|grep GPRS_co)
in above script, in red line, you'll need to change the mac address and channel number as you saved it, Ok so now we all set up , you just need to click Connect and it'll connect to your mobile and will create internet connection.
if it is not connecting to your mobile first try following in console
rfcomm connect 0 your-mac-address chennal-number
e.g. rfcomm connect 0 18:14:56:CA:9E:42 1
and then click Connect script file it should work fine ..
To transfer files with bluetooth, right click bluetooth icon in tray and select Send Files
