I am trying to connect my Lenovo S10E to a Nintendo Wiimote via bluetooth. I am using a simple Python script, reproduced below. I am calling it from the Linux Mint (version 16, "Petra") command line using
My goal is to connect a wiimote to Mint, then output MIDI (eventually). I am using Python due to its cross-platform advantages.
import bluetooth target_name = "Nintendo RVL-CNT-01" target_address = "00:1C:BE:29:75:7F" nearby_devices = bluetooth.discover_devices() for bdaddr in nearby_devices: if target_name == bluetooth.lookup_name( bdaddr ): target_address = bdaddr break if target_address is not None: print("found target bluetooth device with address "), target_address else: print("could not find target bluetooth device nearby")
I am receiving the error
Traceback (most recent call last): File "find_wii.py", line 1, in <module> import bluetooth ImportError: No module named 'bluetooth'
I have installed bluez and python wrappings for it (
sudo aptitude install python-bluez). I have upgraded my system (
sudo apt-get update,
sudo apt-get upgrade). I did consulted Google, and the only official bugs I could find are here and here, and neither of the answers worked for me.
How can I get the Bluetooth module to work with Mint?
