What is agent?

Article should explain what is agent and when it should be on. Is it for asking PIN code? When or why we should off if? -- Agent0 (talk) 18:13, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

I stumbled upon the same omission - while I did succeed to follow the CLI-based installation instructions, I still don't know "What is that 'agent', and what is it good for?"
Also, the messages from the software regarding the "controller" disconnecting where somewhat irritating - but since everything works fine I guess that is just a strange way of logging some software interface activity. --Lvml (talk) 16:22, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

Deprecation of hciconfig

Since hciconfig was deprecated upstream, we should replace all references to it with proper non-deprecated commands. --Ape (talk) 05:45, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Feel free to go ahead. Until then see the note in Bluetooth#Installation. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 07:54, 8 March 2017 (UTC)
I just ran into issues because of that as well, so I totally agree with that. Unfortunately, I can't find the time in doing that myself. --LukeLR (talk) 23:32, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

DualBoot bluetooth

This seems to be the same problem: They use the same workaround as I proposed

Copy Paired devices from Windows is explained here: [1] This prevents the constant re-pairing of devices.

Should this info be included in the DualBoot Section?

Merging general setup from Keyboard, Mouse, Headset pages

Bluetooth_mouse, Bluetooth_keyboard, and Bluetooth_headset all contain duplicate info about general bluez5 installation, pairing, connections, and troubleshooting. I'd like to merge all the general info into this Bluetooth page. Then the [mouse|keyboard|headset] pages can expand on any device-specific setup/troubleshooting, which seems to be the original intent. Any objections?

This sounds very good and should make the whole topic much clearer. Remggo (talk) 09:49, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
