Hi All,

Could you please recommend me a Bluetooth USB stick which works on LinuxPPC?

Thanks,
Christian

I have bought the LogiLink BT0015 USB stick (Bluetooth V4.0 EDR Class1 Micro, CSR Chip) this week. It works without any problems. (Thanks to Sinan for his help)

Turn down the volume if your Bluetooth speaker is making white noise.

I bought another USB bluetooth dongle and it works without any problems. Now, I have bluetooth dongles for the X1000 and X5000. :-)

Here are my USB bluetooth dongles:

1. GEMBIRD USB bluetooth dongle

Code: Select all
Bus 006 Device 002: ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode)


2. LogiLink BT0015 USB bluetooth V4.0 EDR Class1 Micro, CSR Chip

Code: Select all
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode)

I was encouraged by this to buy a LogiLink BT0015 Bluetooth V4.0 dongle, but apparently it would only work on a Windows machine. Or is there some secret way to make it work in AmigaOne X5000 Ubuntu 16.04?

Hi Kilaueabart,

It also works with ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS PowerPC without any problems. You can buy it. ;-)

Cheers,

Sorry, I wasn't clear. I DID buy it, but it doesn't give me Bluetooth in my MATE. It came with a disk with only some .exe programs.

You don’t need the EXE file but you need the kernel modules of your kernel in the directory /lib/modules. You can find the modules directory in the kernel package. There are drivers (kernel modules) for Bluetooth in the kernel modules directory.

I remember back in my X1000 days I always used to put new kernel modules into /lib/. In fact a couple of thumb drives I was booting Ubuntu from on my X5000 still have 4.16.0-rc7_A-EON_AmigaOne_X1000_Nemo in them.

But I'm not sure. Am I supposed to put the kernel_modules/ directory into /lib/modules/, or the content of it, namely 4.20.0-rc4_A-EON_A1-X5000 directly? Putting kernel_modules in whole hasn't enabled Bluetooth. When I click the icon in the upper right corner, I get: Turn Bluetooth Off, six useful-looking but ghosted options, then Local Services, Plugins, Help, Exit.

The "usb tree" command in Uboot shows the dongle is recognized. I tried following instructions in https://www.maketecheasier.com/setup-bl ... -in-linux/ but gave up when one action brought me:
Bluez daemon is not running, blueman-manager cannot continue.
This probably means that there were no Bluetooth adapters detected or Bluetooth daemon was not started.
