    Re: HOWTO: Wii Remote in Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (8.10)

    Now that you mentioned it, I tried connecting the wiimote but without putting it in discoverable mode and I get the exact same error as you.

    Apparently your wiimote is not being synced with Ubuntu ...

    Try pressing 1+2 (putting in discoverable mode) before using the wminput command. Maybe your wiimote is taking longer to be synced than in Hardy.

    Try that and let me know what happens. Remember first the wiimote and then the "gksudo wminput XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX" command, but don't wait too long to input the command.

    Hope it works! !

    I tried all possible timings, nothing works!

    Now I would like to debug directly from the source code. Do you know what debugger/IDE I can use to put breakpoints in source code and go deeper in this issue?

    I'm very sorry but I've never debugged in my life...especially source code. I can find that out for you, but I'll need time. I can have an answer for you in a few hours.

    I'll see what I can find!

    Re: HOWTO: Wii Remote in Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (8.10)

    Ok...I haven't got anything on debugging...as I've never done it before. But Rhubarb gave an idea of what might be wrong.

    If you upgraded from Hardy probably your bluetooth stack got screwed in the process. Anyways go to Synaptic and search for libbluetooth2. If it's installed uninstall completely it and install libbluetooth3 which is the one that Intrepid uses. And if libbluetooth3 is installed reinstall it just in case.

    Since you said that wmgui nor wminput synced with the wiimote most probably the problem lies in your bluetooth stack. Try that and post back the results!

    Hope this works!

    Both libbluetooth2 and libbluetooth3 were installed.
    I removed the 2 version and reinstalled the 3 version: the erorr is still the same...

    Re: HOWTO: Wii Remote in Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (8.10)

    Ugh...I really don't know what to do next...

    Try uninstalling the 3 version too and then reinstalling it...and reboot the computer to see if it takes effect.

    As a last resort you might have to do a fresh install of Intrepid. Upgrades always end up in disaster...

    Cool Re: HOWTO: Wii Remote in Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (8.10)

    Same problem here. Funny thing is: only on one of two notebooks. On my main notebook(kubuntu intrepid, updated since 7.04) the setup works without any problems, but on my netbook (ubuntu intrepid, updated since 8.04) i get this "Socket connect error (control channel)" error.

    Re: HOWTO: Wii Remote in Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (8.10)

    Apparently upgrading Hardy-->Intrepid messes something up (when it is fresh Hardy-->Intrepid and not Feisty-->Gutsy-->Hardy-->Intrepid). My advice is to backup everything important to you and make a fresh install of Intrepid.

    That way you're almost certain to have success in Wiimoting...At least I haven't had any problems this far, and everyone I know who installed Intrepid from scratch for that matter.

    So backup, install, and follow the guide again.

    The sad part is that wminput and cwiid use intricate parts of X.org and some libraries that aren't easily reconfigured and/or reinstalled...So the best way is to reformat and install a fresh Intrepid.

    I hope this helps!

    i've just noticed, that my usb-bt-stick seems to be the problem.

    [not working]
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 1131:1001
    Integrated System Solution Corp. KY-BT100 Bluetooth Adapter

    My internel bt is working is working fine, while the usb-bt-stick fails on the same machine.

    [working]
    Bus 005 Device 003: ID 0a5c:2110
    Broadcom Corp. Bluetooth Controller

    i'm not sure if my usb-stick worked with earlyer kernel version

    Hmmm...that's weird, although some USB Bluetooth dongles are notorious for not working well with wiimotes for some reason.

    Some sticks/dongles work fine with other devices but not with wiimotes...I still don't know why.

    Anyways, try using your internal bluetooth. Most probably there's an incompatibility between both bluetooth receivers...

    Keep posting !
