    Default Getting bluetooth working and connecting...

    I am trying to get my Bluetooth working with BT5 R1 on an DELL D620 laptop. After an initial issues with firmware/bios/vista etc etc. I have it almost working...

    # lsmod | grep blue
    bluetooth 78085 1 btusb
    rfkill 14987 3 cfg80211,bluetooth,dell_laptop

    # lsusb | grep -i Blue
    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 413C:8103 Dell Computer Corp. Wireless 350 Bluetoth

    # dmesg | grep -i Blue
    [ 10.620057 ] Bluetooth: Core 2.16
    [ 10.620131 ] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized
    [ 10.620134 ] Bluetooth: HCI SOCKET layer initialized
    [ 10.824910 ] Bluetooth: Generic Bluetooth USB driver ver 0.6

    Up it!
    # hciconfig -a hic0 up

    # hciconfig dev
    Devices:
    hci0 00:1a:6b:1d:cc:02

    #hciconfig -a
    hci0: DB Address 00:1a:6b:1d:cc:02 acl MTU xxx
    Up running
    .
    .

    If I use the the ubuntu bluetooth setup as a guide.
    I don't have /etc/init.d/bluetooth or /etc/bluetooth/hci.conf or any tools like bluez yet they are installed

    I've tried updating but it say I already have installed already.

    What am I missing in connecting up to my phone via bluetooth?

    Hello all, I've also used BT 4 and now I'm trying to add a Bluetooth device with BT 5. I know the mac address and other info about the device. I really need to know how to get BT5 to recognize the Bluetooth adapter so I can try some pen-testing with that.

    Some info on my system it's an older pc that I have Dell Dimension 3000 and the Bluetooth device is made by Trident model TBW-105UB.
    Thanks in advance for any info that might help.

    I was reading and seems they use the kernel way to start bluetooth by "udev". Still I'm more used with the init way personally, I don't like change !
