Hello. Apologies if this is documented and I’ve just failed to find it. I just set up Openhab2 on my Raspberry Pi, and not yet having a lot of home automation hardware, I thought I’d begin by setting up presence detection via bluetooth. I just want to detect whether my phone is present, and eventually automate temperature and other controls based on that.
I found a wiki page documenting the process of rebuilding the bluetooth bindings to work under Linux. Didn’t look too complicated, and I’ve used Linux since Slackware96 so…
- The directions for recompiling Bluecove have you check out a svn repository on Google Code. The Google Code service no longer exists.
- Googling for a new source location for Bluecove takes me to a SourceForge page, which in turn points me to the defunct Google Code page. I don’t even know if the source for this library is still available.
- I can’t find the Bluetooth addon sources. I’d thought to download the jars for 2.1.0 still available on Google Code and see if the addon built with those, though lots has changed in the Linux world since those were built (2008) and I’m worried they may not work.
Is this still even a supported addon? I’m familiar with Linux, but navigating this ecosystem is incredibly overwhelming.
