View Full Version : Lego NXT and Ubuntu

Hi there,

I need to connect my Lego NXT device via bluetooth in WINE. The NXT device uses an bluetooth com port to communicate to a computer. I want to use Brixcc to program it. In windows BrixCC uses the bluetooth stack to find the NXT, pair with it and set up the connection. The only thing I have to do is select my NXT from the list.

In linux this doesn't work. BrixCC doesn't see my bluetooth usb dongle.

How can I use my bluetooth dongle in WINE?

In my experience of NXTs, I have found it much easier to merely plug in the NXTs via USB, if that's an option?

Some things just aren't possible in WINE at the moment, so I wouldn't get your hopes up, keep searching the net and maybe something will pop up :)
