    What type/chipset and BT version of adaptors are you using ?

    Well - blow me down with a feather (or something heavier!) - it's suddenly working on Fedora! I sadly have no idea how I got it working!!! The last thing I did, in utter desperation, was that I simply copied over the contents of /var/lib/bluetooth/[working adapter mac address] from the working Debian setup.

    I don't like not knowing how it worked .. but until somebody comes up with a documented procedure, I can live with it!

    FYI -

    If the pair was "trusted" on Debian - then I think you have copied over the "trust" encrypted keys and so skipped the pairing authentication.

    Not familiar with the chip vendor of that adaptor. I have two Broadcom and an Atheros adatpors whcih work OK , The 2.1 is a Cambridge Labs chip but is unreliable (sometimes works, sometimes doesn't, sometimes stops after working for a while) and was the cheapest . The "Trust" BT3.0 adaptor was the next cheapest and is most reliable. So as I see it price has nothing to do with quality but on the web there are many complaints about v. cheap BT adaptors which are supposed to have Cambridge Labs chipset but actual Manufacturer is not identified - I suspect some sort of clone of a good design which may be OK for Windows but not for Linux.

    I have 2 other Cambridge Silicon adapters - both flaky The Zaapa worked immediately - it's a known Spanish company for PCs, etc.
