Bluetooth adaptor works on Pi2

September 30, 2016 — BarryK
I recently ordered a bluetooth USB adaptor from Amazon:

I am pleased to report that it works out-of-the-box, with Quirky 8.0.23.

I developed Bluepup, which is a GUI for making buetooth connections, and there is also a tray applet.

I plugged in the bluetooth adaptor, clicked the icon n the tray, then clicked on the button to pair with my keyboard. It asked for a number to be typed in, then it was paired.

I did a reboot, the keyboard is still paired. Though, there is a little bit of reluctance a first, had to type a few keys before the pairing occurred. Maybe that is normal.
