I am on Linux Mint 18.1(same as Ubuntu 16.04) with kernel version 4.4.0-59-generic an installed the Ralink RT3290 bluetooth driver from this guide: RT3290 Ralink driver in Ubuntu. I used BlueZ to pair my phone with my computer and it always fails, then i tried with
bluetoothctl and gives me the following output:
simo1427@the-master-linuxmint ~ $ bluetoothctl [NEW] Controller 9C:2A:70:6B:F1:E6 the-master-linuxmint [default] [NEW] Device 00:22:37:15:74:F2 JBL Micro Wireless [NEW] Device 84:8E:DF:60:E8:FC Xperia Z1 Compact [bluetooth]# power on Changing power on succeeded [bluetooth]# agent on Agent registered [bluetooth]# pair 84:8E:DF:60:E8:FC Attempting to pair with 84:8E:DF:60:E8:FC [CHG] Device 84:8E:DF:60:E8:FC Connected: yes Request confirmation [agent] Confirm passkey 465491 (yes/no): yes Failed to pair: org.bluez.Error.AuthenticationFailed [CHG] Device 84:8E:DF:60:E8:FC Connected: no [bluetooth]#
The same error is output when i try to pair my speaker with my computer.
