I've been struggling for the past two days to get my Bluetooth keyboard to work with my Raspberry Pi 2, with Kali 2.0 installed (I have gotten Adafruit's PiTFT software from http://adafruit-download.s3.amazonaws.com/adafruit_pitft_kernel_1.20150420-1.tar.gz, and have installed it, and it's helper script). I'm thinking this is a software issue, since my Bluetooth dongle is recognized with
hcitool dev, and I can properly scan nearby Bluetooth devices with
I followed an article, that said to install several things (to get the Bluetooth to work), one of which was
bluez-utils. Apt returned an error, saying that
bluez-utils was outdated, and
bluez was a replacement for it. So I removed
bluez-utils from the command, and installed
python-gobject, and a few other needed packages. Then, I tried using
bluez, to find that I got command not found from bash. So, I did a filesystem search with
find /* | grep bluez to find that bluez's documentation was installed, but
bluez wasn't. I then tried installing it from source, to find that it needed a ton of dependencies, and those dependencies needed tons of dependencies, etc., so I gave up on that route.
I would be fine installing
bluez from source, if there is a simple and easy way to do it.
Any help with installing bluez would be appreciated.
