    How to connect a USB Bluetooth adapter to Edison?

    s89

      I’m connecting a König CSBLUEKEY200 Bluetooth LE adapter to my Edison, since I can’t get a combination of central and peripheral roles to work simultaneously using the built-in Broadcom adapter (bug). I hope it will work when I use two separate adapters. This particular adapter from König is listed as working under Linux at Noble: Compatible Devices. I have connected it to the OTG port of a Sparkfun board, which previously worked to connect UART and audio devices. The Edison doesn’t seem to make the Bluetooth adapter available for use though. In Ubuntu 14.04 the same adapter worked fine. Any idea how this could be fixed?

       

      The `hciconfig` output:

      hci0:   Type: BR/EDR  Bus: UART
              BD Address: 98:4F:EE:03:9F:22  ACL MTU: 1021:8  SCO MTU: 64:1
              UP RUNNING PSCAN 
              RX bytes:948 acl:0 sco:0 events:42 errors:0
              TX bytes:1491 acl:0 sco:0 commands:42 errors:0
      

       

      The hci0 is the built-in device. I would expect a second device hci1 to be added for the external adapter.

       

      The `lsusb` output:

      Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
      Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode)
      Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
      

       

      The `dmesg` output after plugging it in (I also tried booting Edison with the device already plugged in):
