I have an Arduino Uno connected to an HC-05 Bluetooth sender/receiver chip. I am trying to create a Bluetooth connection between my Acer laptop running under Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and the HC-05 chip.
Ubuntu detects the HC-05 chip, as can be seen below.
phodor@ubuntu: hcitool scan Scanning ... 11:22:33:44:55:66 HC-05
I am able to create a pair between my laptop Bluetooth device and the HC-05 chip. However, I am unable to create a connection with that pair from the Ubuntu interface. The "Connection" button cannot be clicked on, as you can see on the figure below.
I tried creating a connection using the terminal, but after that the terminal still did not detect any connection.
phodor@ubuntu: sudo hcitool cc 11:22:33:44:55:66 [sudo] password for phodor: phodor@ubuntu: hcitool con Connections:
I also checked that my computer Bluetooth device was working.
phodor@ubuntu: hcitool dev Devices: hci0 AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF
Any idea why the connection cannot be created ? Any idea on how to do it using the Ubuntu interface or the terminal ?
