I'm using Mint 15 w/ Cinnamon.
I bought a set of bluetooth speakers and I'm trying to connect to them via terminal. Via the GUI I can see them normally and I am connected to them. I want to make a small script so every time they are visible I would connect to them automatically.
I am trying to scan them with:
But I get
and after a few seconds the process dies.
The same thing with
If I run
hciconfig scan I get:
hci0: Type: BR/EDR Bus: USB BD Address: 40:2C:F4:78:E8:69 ACL MTU: 1021:8 SCO MTU: 64:1 UP RUNNING PSCAN ISCAN RX bytes:130700 acl:22 sco:0 events:18527 errors:0 TX bytes:31875398 acl:36784 sco:0 commands:75 errors:0
I suppose that is just saying my bluetooth address and that it is turned on.
As I said already, via the normal User Interface, I can see the speakers and I am connected to them, but through terminal I get nothing.
Actually it is quite funny that
hcitool scan isn't finding anything since my speakers are connected and every time I run the command the sound from the speakers breaks for a couple of seconds.
