Okay this was relatively simple…..
- Make sure you can either ssh and become root and/or run xterm and become root on your N800.
- Ssh to the N800 and become root (either through sudo grainroot or something similar)
- Goto kbdd‘s website and download kbdd.tar.gz onto your N800.
- Extract it to root’s home directory using tar -zvlf kbdd.tar.gz and cd to kbdd.
- Unfold the keyboard/insert battries/press the button on top right corner and make sure the LED beside it starts blinking.
- In Ssh client type hcitool scan to scan for bluetooth devices. If you have more than 1 device you might see multiple entries. Note the Bluetooth address in form of xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx . You will need this in the next step.
- Use vi (in ssh session) to edit the file btkbd.conf and make it look as follows:
- Where xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx is the Bluetooth Address you got at step 6 and PORTNUM is the Bluetooth serial port number the script creates (2 should be safe, try not to use 0/1 as they are used for Cell phone connections).
- Make sure your Keyboard and N800 are not paired before starting this process. If they are paired, delete the pairing first. Make keyboard discoverable (press the top right button beside the LED) and run btkbd command from ssh command line. Wait for a pop-up on your N800 and type 0000 as the pairing code.
- If everything is working you should be able to type on the BT keyboard now. You can run btkbd again to stop the deamon.
- If it works you can add menu shortcut. Just run the install_shortcut.sh script in kbdd directory.
