I'm after getting some help to make a keyboard work, I can't figure out how to get it to connect and stay connected so it will work to allow me to enter my password when switching the PC on. The bluetooth works just fine.

user@pc:~$ bluetoothctl [NEW] Controller 00:07:61:50:C8:24 BamBam2 [default] [NEW] Device 00:07:61:4C:C8:3D Dell BT Mouse [NEW] Device 00:07:61:4D:8A:81 Dell BT Keyboard Agent registered [Dell BT Mouse]# info 00:07:61:4D:8A:81 Device 00:07:61:4D:8A:81 (public) Name: Dell BT Keyboard Alias: Dell BT Keyboard Class: 0x00002540 Icon: input-keyboard Paired: yes Trusted: yes Blocked: no Connected: no LegacyPairing: no UUID: Human Interface Device... (00001124-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb) UUID: PnP Information (00001200-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb) Modalias: usb:v046DpB308d7312 [Dell BT Mouse]# connect 00:07:61:4D:8A:81 Attempting to connect to 00:07:61:4D:8A:81 Failed to connect: org.bluez.Error.Failed [Dell BT Mouse]#

I sometimes get a box that pops up that asks me to input a PIN. I don't know what the PIN is and the bluetooth won't type anything anyway. Sometimes it randomly connects, not sure why, but it loses the connection if I reboot. I have looked at the related questions but they have not helped.

    You are right. I understand the problem you are facing, its quite frustrating I may add. Editing is a process of making question and answers better. Your words do describe your problem. Sometimes we edit post to correct grammar, correct spellings, improve formatting, adding more information, removing information, adding tags, removing tags, inserting in-line tags etc. Edits are done to make the site clean and better. It is not some kind of English lesson. About the technical help, yes that's kind of what this website is for. Please wait for someone to come with an answer. – Hasan Jan 4 at 13:19

  • About your problem, there's some bug in the latest release. The whole bluetooth thing is kind of messed up right now. See it here. – Hasan Jan 4 at 15:53
  • Try entering 0000 as a PIN – Ken Kinder Jan 4 at 23:44
