Just installed a Pi3 and sdcard supplied by Pi-Top into my pi-top and found the Pi3 appears to be much quicker than the Pi2 it replaced.
To get the Pi3's onboard wi-fi working I had to connect with wired ethernet and then in terminal do:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
followed by a reboot.
However, I can't get the Pi3's onboard bluetooth to work. I've tried:
sudo apt-get install pi-bluetooth
which installed the newest version of pi-bluetooth and allowed me to use bluetooth with a USB dongle, but the pi3 internal bluetooth adaptor doesn't appear listed as an adaptor.
Has anybody else got this problem or found a solution?
i know have the latest and greatest pi-topOS 12/02/16 and the bluetooth has gotten way far but it is no connecting to my samsung bluetooth sound bar it says I need to go to the audio menu to connect. So I download pulse audio but that says fatal error! any ideas?
Should Bluetooth with RPI3 out of the box with 2016-09-30-pi-topOS?
Just tested the logitech Dinovo Edge Bluetooth keyboard with PIXEL the newest Pi-topOS without needing to install blueman or reinstall pi-bluettooth. I am using a usb bluetooth adapter though.
I had to type the pairing code once then type in a second code when it requested it. but....
It paired fine and woks.
I will retest with the Pi zero board. but it should work.
I am actually having a similar issue with Pixel and a logitech Dinovo edge bluetooth keyboard. The keyboard worked fine and connected O.K. on an install of Raspbian Jessie (5-23-16 i think) on a pi zero (not relevant to the forums, I know!). I tried updating that image to Pixel, and the keyboard wouldn't connect anymore. I also tried a fresh image of raspbian pixel, keyboard still won't connect.
After I get the pi-top updated, I will see if I can track this issue down as I said, I know it's not relevant to the forums, but its the same OS.
oh, and erik's post above will get the bluetooth working, but won't solve the audio lag.
@ G Lawrence,
umm look at my file up above in the other pi bluetooth thread. once you get the bluetooth adapter working, it may still not be useable. If you use the onboard wifi and the onboard bluetooth at the same time, the bluetooth audio wil lag behind about a second or so. there doesn't appear to be enough bandwidth on the bus that the combo chip uses. get a separate usb bluetooth dongle. this is the best solution for now.
I am also having an issue with bluetooth, (no adapter available). I am running pi-top OS updated to Pixel. My speaker works well, boots quick runs steady. I just cannot use my bluetooth accessories (headphones, speakers etc).
Please read Erik's post in this thread it's the fourth post on page one. it is how you get bluetooth working on the pi-top.
sorry, I didn't feel likie reposting his material.
i have read every article on getting the Bluetooth working and the on board adapter doesn't seen to show up please help.
I had the issue with Bluetooth not identifying the adapter on pi-topOS. I then started with a fresh install of Raspbian and got bluetooth working under raspbian, to make sure my bluetooth was working properly.
Then i installed the repos for pt-battery and pt-hub. As soon as I installed the pt-hub package the bluetooth stopped responding.
It seems like there is a conflict there or a permission issue.
for easier reading I have taken my posts and combined them in this text file.
