Hi

I wanna use my Rebirth Pandora as a Bluetooth HID keyboard, now that my display is bust. I am mostly on Linux-Swat's SL4P Slackware.

Really tough to boot into SZ/ Angstrom. I need to remove battery and then R button + 4th option in blind mode to get SuperZaxxon.

Sl4P is ok for me though.

Having bluez-4.91-arm-2.txz.

"bluetoothctl" command don't get my default controller.

Please find the following and do suggest me your ideas.

Regards

Nataraj

Good question, I've never had any success getting bluetooth working from the terminal when I last tried some years ago, which has frankly put me off trying again. I never really had a reason to use it on my computers that don't run network manager, but on my Pandora that did run network manager, it was pretty easy to connect to a bluetooth keyboard or joystick.
