Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) on Raspberry Pi with Asus BT-400
So here is my solution.
sudo apt-get install bluetooth bluez-utils blueman
This will install all necessary software. Than type..
The result will be something like this:
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 Vendor Desc.
Now you have to find the correct device. When you found it, copy the ID without colon and write it into the /sys/bus/usb/drivers/btusb/new_id. In my case it was like:
echo “0b05 17cb” >> /sys/bus/usb/drivers/btusb/new_id
or (by the way don’t copy it, write it by yourself)
echo “0b05 17cb” > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/btusb/new_id
Now we will use a tool called modprobe which allows us to load modules on our running system.
modprobe -v btusb
Almost done! Just edit the config with nano (save= crtl+o ; quit= crtl+c)…
… and copy the few lines below
Restart bluetooth and you are ready to go!
sudo invoke-rc.d bluetooth restart
