I'm using mint 15 w/ cinnamon.
I've bought a pair of bluetooth speakers and i'm trying to connect to them via a terminal I can see them normally and am connected to them via the gui I want to make a small script to connect to them automatically every time they are visible
I'm trying to scan them
But I get
and after a few seconds the process dies.
The same thing with
hidd --search .
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 guess it's just saying my bluetooth address and turning it 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.
I managed to do so via bluez-tools .
sudo apt-get install bluez-tools

and successfully connect to it.
