    Bluetooth at boot-up


    I have managed to setup my Arch Linux to communicate with my nokia 6630 mobile phone succesfully using the KDE Bluetooth Framework ( http://kde-bluetooth.sourceforge.net/ ).

    Problem is that I have to start everything manually. here's what I do:

    SU to root and type
    Code:
    hciconfig hci0 up
    then as normal user:
    Code:
    sdpd start
    
    /etc/rc.d/bluetooth start
    
    kbluetoothd
    By default hci0 is always down so I have to 'bring it up' manually. How could I automate this to happen automatically at boot-up?

    Do you not have the KDE bluetooth system tray control? It manages all of these connections for you as you need, and can even be set to pair, autodetect etc. It's really quite handy.

    Well yes, the KDE Bluetooth tray icon is part of kbluetoothd. Of course, once I have done all of the steps mentioned above then the icon appears, I just want to know how to bring hci0 'up' automatically

    Hello guys,

    How can I get this "sdpd" command to work or be installed? Everytime I type it, it gives an error about being unrecognized command.

    Ta.

    EDIT: Figured this out after some major reading and installing of things!
