Bluetooth connection failure

Marc Chamberlin
Hello -  I am running OpenSuSE Leap 15.0 with version 5.12.5 of the
Bluetooth applet on my ASUS laptop. I am trying to make a Bluetooth
connection to a gadget I have (a TinyTrack4 with the Bluetooth adapter)
and it is not succeeding. I have no problems with making a Bluetooth
connection to my Android phone so I don't think I have done anything
wrong in setting up this Bluetooth device and indeed the Bluetooth
applet shows the TinyTrack4 as an available device I can connect to. But
when I try to connect, it appears that I get a momentary successful
connection but then it almost immediately disconnects. The messages log
file shows the following error message -

2020-03-05T19:50:15.949381-08:00 marcslaptop plasmashell[2455]:
org.kde.bluez: PendingCall Error: "In Progress"

I have no idea what that means and Google was of no help either... And
FWIW when I dual boot my laptop over to Windows 10, I have no problems
connecting to my TinyTrack4 with the Bluetooth connection.

So any and all help will be much appreciated, and thanks in advance... I
hope some kind guru can guide me and my laptop to a joyful Bluetooth
union with my TinyTrak4 gizmo...

     Marc...

Oh dear! I just discovered that the setup process for my new TinyTrak4
gizmo appears to be failing also but I don't understand why... This is
what is getting put out in the message log file when I try to set up the
Bluetooth for my TinyTrak4 -

Whilst I can't offer any specific help, I've stumbled on a few quirks
and foibles with bluetooth recently. With one device I found that when
trying to pair the device using a PIN, or sending a file to the PC,
although the device sends the PIN / file, in Plasma the notification
doesn't pop up (this is on Leap 15.1) so it always fails. In that case I
was able to go into the Advanced Settings tab of Bluetooth Settings on
the PC, and check Accept automatically Trusted devices.

With another device - a very very old feature phone, I've found the
connection drops after a few seconds. I've had to reboot the PC and
sometimes that gets it to make a stable connection. But using Wammu to
connect to the phone and transfer files, I can only succeed using a Leap
42.3 installation on an old PC, not with Leap 15.1.

with me it has proven useful to go to 15.1 less problems.
And when I have a dongle I extract it, wait for 30 seconds to be sure it
unloaded and plug it.
It is possible that windows sets the BT hardware in a non recoverable
undocumented energy saving state. Would not be the first time.
If laptop: try to take off the battery and line and press for 30 seconds the
interrupter. Try to start in opensuse at once and perform the procedure.
If it suddenly works you have an idea.

instead of "reboot",
  bluetoothctl power off
  bluetoothctl power on
???

or
  bluetoothctl
and use "help"

Hi Patrick,     I tried using bluetoothctl at you suggested (nice tool
BTW) and still no joy connecting to my TinyTrak4 gizmo. Here is a view

Gumb -  Thanks for the insights on the other issues you have found with
Bluetooth.

Stakanov -  I don't understand what you meant by - "If laptop: try to
take off the battery and line and press for 30 seconds the interrupter."

Thanks guys for taking the time to try and help!    Marc...

"If it is a laptop try to remove the battery and power cable, and press
the power switch for 30 seconds"


That makes the laptop drop any setup done by Windows.
