  • Linux Lite: 5.2 64bit
Hi everyone,

I am trying to pair a Logitech K380 keyboard but I am not getting a prompt to input a pin number and it fails to pair.

I can connect the keyboard but I need to do that each time I use it so that is not ideal.

The same keyboard works on Mint Mate 20.1 so I don't know why it won't work on Linux Lite.

I am using a USB blue-tooth dongle and have tried other dongles with no change so it seems to be a OS specific issue.

If anyone has any suggestions they would be appreciated.

TIA

Gerry

Try installing bluez-tools. See if that makes a difference.

OK I'll give that a try.

Thanks Jerry

So Bluez-tools did not help.

If I change settings in etc/bluetooth/conf do I need to reboot or can I just exit and restart bluetooth?

Thanks
