View Full Version : [ubuntu] Bluetooth GPRS modem connection not acknowledged by system

December 17th, 2008, 06:21 AM
Hello, Ubuntu Forums.

I recently, after a long break of waiting for support for my graphics card, put Ubuntu on my lappy again. Everything works fine, except for my bluetooth GPRS modem (Or Nokia handset if you so wish).

I've followed this (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BluetoothDialup) guide, and it mostly works, except for the pon BluetoothDialup command. When I run that, the computer just briefly connects to the phone, before disconnecting about two seconds later. This isn't the main problem, however, as I can get the phone to connect 100% fine to both the computer and internet using sudo pppd call gprs, but when I do this, only a few applications acknowledge the connection, among them Pidgin and Synaptic, but not Firefox and Wine apps.

What can I do to get the system to believe that it actually is connected when I have issued this command?
