Thomas Seckler created a new topic ' How to set up Shoestring Astronomy BT2EQ5 bluetooth adapter.' in the forum. 7 months ago

This works with a Raspberry pi 3 running Ubuntu Mate 16.04. These are command line instructions in case the pi is headless.

1). In some cases modemmanager interferes with bluetooth operation remove it.

sudo apt-get remove modemmanager

2). Connect the BT2EQ5 to the mount and power on the mount.
Pair the BT2EQ5.

sudo bluetoothctl -a
The -a flag is needed to enter password for pairing.

The Controller with mac address should be displayed. If you do not see line saying Agent registered type
agent on

Type
scan on

A line like this should be displayed.
Device XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX HC-06
Where the XX's is the mac address of the adapter.

Type
pair XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
Replace the XX's with the adapter address from previous step.
Enter device password when prompted unless it has been changed use 1234
Type
trust XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

Type
exit

3). All that is needed to bind device at startup is to modify the bluetooth.service file. The editor I use is nano.

sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/bluetooth.target.wants/bluetooth.service

Directly below the line "ExecStart=/usr/lib/bluetooth/bluetoothd" insert the following line

ExecStartPost=/usr/bin/rfcomm bind rfcomm0 XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

Again replace the XX's with your adapter mac address from previous step.

Exit the editor and save changes.

Type

sudo systemctl enable bluetooth.service and reboot.

Your adapter should now be recognized by Ekos using port /dev/rfcomm0.
