Sorgelig wrote:As for paring, i don't understand why you have many BT devices in pairing mode. This is not permanent BT mode for devices, so they should not be always in pair mode..
It's possible to add selection of found devices at some stage.
Locutus73 wrote:Nope, I'm trying to find a solution for my goal (and possibly see if it can be generalized). Anyway are you totally sure you can't issue single commands throgh bluetoothctl? IIRC yesterday I sent some commands as a single line (i.e. bluetoothctl pair <dev>), instead of with its interactive prompt, but it was late, I was sleepy and I might be wrong. Maybe it can be used as the basis for cooking a script.

I use an older IO board. It's the all in one board (version 5.3 maybe?). And I use the Makerspot usb hub. Could any of that be the cause?

K400 Plus is much worse than K400r. It has slim up/down cursor keys. K400r has full sized cursor keys. Seeing this rubbish move from Logitech i've bought second K400r (it was hard to find in local store - everywhere only K400plus) in case if current one will break
Locutus73 wrote:People, take a look to Microsoft all-in-one media keyboard.
It's really really nice, IMHO much better than Logitech K400 variants and uses a non BT wireless dongle like the K400.
Sorgelig wrote:same problem as K400plus - slim cursor keys. It may be not so important for generic PC use as mouse today has more work than up/down cursors keys. But for retro computers it's crucial. I don't recommend this keyboard.
K400r has longer key travel than this MS keyboard. MS is more like notebook keyboard.

Sorgelig wrote:Currently i don't know any incompatible BT dongle.
May be BT signal range is noisy in your area. If you have any RF devices around you like keyboards, mice, gamepads - switch them off and unplug their dongles. And then try to pair DS4 again. Usually RF devices use the same 2.4HGz as BT and may interfere the BT.
If you use not powered USB HUB or direct connection - it may work incorrectly as well.
P.S.: I hope you use original DS4. I don't know the compatibility with any 3rd-party PS4 wireless controllers.

I am using a Inateck OTG Hub which is powered.
dmesg shows it being plugged in:
[ 319.000503] usb 1-1.1: New USB device found, idVendor=0a12, idProduct=0001, bcdDevice=88.91
[ 319.000515] usb 1-1.1: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
[ 319.000529] usb 1-1.1: Product: CSR8510 A10
But it doesn't then identify it as a bluetooth dongle.
In the F11 pairing window I never see any devices when I put them into pairing mode (I tried a PS4 DS).
Any suggestions would be gratefully received!
