Version: unspecified (using KDE 4.6.4)
Hi all, I'm trying to pair my laptop (gentoo, KDE 4.6.5, bluedevil 1.1) with a gps device (mobileMate 886), but the process stops halfway.
Basically, when I try to pair the device and I tick "manual PIN", entering 0000, the default pin for the device that obviously doesnt' have any keyboard, kde wizard prompt me with a random pin asking me to enter it in the device, obviously a no-go. Same device works just fine with an android device and on the same laptop, using windows in virtualbox. I can therefore exclude hardware problems. How I can try to have the device correctly paired?
Steps to Reproduce:
Just try to pair the device using kde wizard
prompts for a pin, asking to enter it into device to be paired.
no pin request (0000 pin being already entered) and device paired
OMG, I can reproduce the issue, will try to fix asap.
Bug fixed, will be released with 1.1.1 :)!
Despite the bug, we've a small database with exceptions like your dive so we can provide a more automatic experience, do you mind to paste here the output of
"hcitool scan" ?
With that, we can add your device to the database so it will pair automatically in both, GNOME and KDE :)!

Use manualPin()->checked instead of a unused method from Wizard
When we refactor the code seems that we forgot to remove all
Wizard::manualPin() usage. This commit remove that code to be sure
that this never happen again.

thanks for the fix; meanwhile here the output of hcitool scan as requested:
calvin ~ # hcitool scan
00:1C:88:30:20:A6 886 GPS
Have you try to use the automatic mode? (without checking manual?) bluedevil should detect your device and put 0000 as PIN already :/
Can you try it?
Just tried; (kde 4.7.0 bluedevil 1.1.1)
unfortunately the behaviour is the same: from an empty list of bt devices, I choose "add", after some seconds the gps dongle appears; choosing it and clicking on "next", leaving unticked "manual PIN", wizard prompts me with a pin to be entered.
Hitting "cancel", my bt dongle is listed on known devices list,
with "associated" in green.
Seems a bit weird behaviour, what do you think?
