Problem Pairing Bluetooth keyboard from Terminal Tutorial


#1

I can Pair my new Mini Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard ok using Raspbian GUI. (part of P/Order #P1240969)
I am hoping to be able to boot up in terminal mode and use the bluetooth keyboard/touchpad, with an aim to set up a remote web camera at our Caravan some 30 miles away.

I am trying to use Terminal commands as listed in your https://learn.pimoroni.com/tutorial/sandyj/raspberry-pi-wireless-keyboards
When I get to the line :- bluez-simple-agent hci0 [MAC address] I get an error :- (command not found?)
I ran the install (2nd) line again and made a note of the message :-
Package bluez-utils is not available but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source. However the following package(s) replaces it :- bluez
Could you please advise what commands I should be using (is the tutorial up to date?).
I have some Unix experience (a Long time ago!) and am reliving this with Raspberry Relish!
Regards

Hi Clive,

You should be able to install the package with the following terminal commands:

sudo apt-get update

Once that’s finished:

sudo apt-get install bluez

Hope that gets you going :)

Cheers,

Matt
