Enable bluetooth keyboard at boot
I can connect my bluetooth keyboard manually just fine - and it works like a charm. My problem is that i can't get it to connect during boot.
Archlinux / Fluxbox / Dell Inspiron 1420N / Logitech BT Keyboard
What I did to configure the bt keyboard:
-added my keyboard's name/mac to file '/etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf'
-enabled laptop's bluetooth device with command 'hciconfig hci0 up'
-connected the device using the command 'hidd --search'
What I've done to try and get the keyboard to connect during boot:
-added the command 'hciconfig hci0 up' to file '/etc/rc.local' so the laptop's bt device is enabled
-added 'hcid' and 'hidd' to modules array in file '/etc/rc.conf'
-added 'bluetooth' to daemons arrary in file '/etc/rc.conf'
-added ' HIDD_ENABLE="true" ' to file '/etc/rc.d/bluetooth'
-added ' HIDD_OPTIONS="--connect <keyboard mac>" ' to file 'etc/rc.d/bluetooth'
-added 'HIDD_ENABLED=1' to file /etc/default/bluetooth'
-added ' HIDD_OPTIONS="--master --connect <keyboard mac> --server" ' to file '/etc/default/bluetooth'
Nothing seems to work. The keyboard never connects at boot. Anyone know what I need to do to get this working?
Very many thanks in advance.
