How to use Bluetooth on Slackware

To start the bluetooth system, just run as root:

Code:

#sh /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth start

To bring the bluetooth device online, first, see if your dongle is recognized by running:

#hciconfig -a

The device name will most likely be hci0.

 

You can now bring it online with:

Code:

#hciconfig hci0 up

 

If you want this to start at boot up, add these lines to your ‘/etc/rc.d/rc.local’

Code:

PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth start hciconfig hci0 up

Then you can use the command ‘hcitool’ from the command line.
