I intended to use the Perl module Device::Gsm to operate a USB bluetooth dongle, but the first thing it wanted to know was where the bluetooth device was (ie /dev/ttyS0 etc)
Looking at dmesg for all Bluetooth entries I have
[ 67.122507] Bluetooth: Core ver 2.11
[ 67.122588] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized
[ 67.122592] Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized
[ 67.183348] Bluetooth: HCI USB driver ver 2.9
[ 99.954418] Bluetooth: L2CAP ver 2.8
[ 99.954423] Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized
[ 100.130472] Bluetooth: RFCOMM socket layer initialized
[ 100.130489] Bluetooth: RFCOMM TTY layer initialized
[ 100.130491] Bluetooth: RFCOMM ver 1.8
None of the above don't seem to give any clues
Also looked at these
cat /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf and lastly
but I can't glean a device from any of it.
So I was just wondering how I go about determining what device is assigned to the bluetooth dongle.
There is a character device radio0 but I suspect that belongs to the radio card
All this on Ubuntu-7.04
Could anyone advise how I find what device the dongle is attached to?
