• Failed to connect: org.bluez.Error.NotReady

    I have some problem with bluetooth.

    I got following message when I try to connect my bluetooth keyboard.

    Failed to connect: org.bluez.Error.NotReady

    When I try to pair

    power on
    remove mac-of-keyboard

    what tool you are using to connect?
    For “legacy pair devices” like headphone / keyboard e.t.c. pairing is not needed also… they use legacy PIN 0000 automaticly…

    CLI bluetoothctl will do this as follows:

    power on
    agent KeyboardOnly
    pairable on
    scan on
    pair mac-of-keyboard
    trust mac-of-keyboard
    connect mac-of-keyboard

    where mac-of-keyboard needs to be replaced by the mac adress scan on gives you for the keyboard:
    will look like this one:

    [bluetooth]# scan on
    Discovery started
    [CHG] Controller 00:23:83:3D:0A:23 Discovering: yes
    [CHG] Device 00:23:9E:23:0C:23 LegacyPairing: yes
    [CHG] Device 00:23:9E:23:0C:23 RSSI: -67

    controller = bluetooth device (host)
    device = keyboard (Client)


  • Thanks! I made it work. But I had to try to connect several times. I find that bluetooth has trouble connecting and requires several attempts. Once I’ve connected it seems stable.

  • do you use GDM?
