Hi,

I have setup a wiimote to use as a remote controller, and it's working fine. My problem is that, though the device has been *trusted* in bluetoothctl, I need to issue the "connect" command (from bluetoothctl) or press the corresponding button from KDE interface every time I want to connect the wiimote.

I tried setting

Code:
DiscoverableTimeout = 0
AutoEnable=true


in /etc/bluetooth/main.conf, but it didn't help.

Any clues?

Hi,

I have the same problem with a bluetooth headset, the issue does not seems
to be restricted to wiimote. Since months the headset was auto-connecting when
turning it on, but since recently (possibly a recent update) it does not, I have to
connect it manually into blueman-manager.

If I run bluetoothctl before turning the headset on I'm getting this
output into the terminal :
Code:

$ bluetoothctl
Agent registered
[CHG] Device F4:0E:11:75:E0:0B Connected: yes
[CHG] Device F4:0E:11:75:E0:0B Connected: no

It seems to connect then disconnect.

It seems to be intentionally developed to avoid some kind of errors that are crept certain users in the past.
