Never mind, I figured it out. It is all about creating a cron job.
sudo crontab -e
@reboot sleep 5 && /bin/echo -e ‘connect XX:XX:XX:XX:XX \n quit \n’ | bluetoothctl
It has been a few years. Can remind me what we you told me the last time to fix this issue? I see my comment, but it’s not jogging my memory right now.
Ok. I decided I wanted to update my Pi 3. Disaster. It’s not working. In fact, I can’t find an image that does work. Including The ARM images currently offered by offensive security. Vers. 2020.1a.
The OS seems to load, but the keyboard doesn’t work, nor does the touch pad. Basically, I can’t do anything without them.
Can anyone offer some ideas here? I’d really like to get my Pi 3 working again.
What would really help is if the top panel actually had a bluetooth icon. Then one could see if bluetooth is enabled or not. It appears Kali developers missed the mark on this Pi 2/3 image.
It’s pairing now though, so that’s one less issue.
Silly me, I was making a typo.
@reboot echo “connect MACADDRESSOFNEXDOCKKEYBOARD” | bluetoothctl
(I failed to put connect MACADDRESSOFNEXDOCKKEYBOARD in quotes.)
It works now.
However, I still have an issue. There is no sound…
With the latest Raspbian image I had none of these issues. Using this Kali Arm image, I’ve had multiple issues. :/
