jrohwer Posted July 17, 2009 Report Share Posted July 17, 2009 I cannot connect Bluetooth input devices (mouse and keyboard) as a normal user on my Dell Latitude D630 (Mandriva 2009.1). In the KDE Bluetooth Device Manager, the devices get picked up and shown as "connected" but they do not respond. If I then move the mouse, the status switches between "connected" and "not connected" but the mouse does not respond (i.e. cursor is not moved). When I try to add the device manually as a normal user, I get the following: $ hidd --search Searching ... Connecting to device 00:07:61:63:77:CD HID create error 13 (Permission denied) So it does seem to find the device but there is a permissions problem in connecting. When I run the command as root: # hidd --search then everything works as expected and I can connect the devices. However, this is a pain because 1. the devices do not connect automatically on startup and I have to manually issue this command every time, 2. the devices don't reconnect automatically after a timeout. Any ideas which permissions to set? Everything worked perfectly under 2009.0 and this is really annoying me.... --johann Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
