Ubuntu 12.10 and Windows 8 Dual Boot - Bluetooth Pairing

1 post in this topic

I have a Dell L7102X which has been enabled for UEFI via Custom BIOS and I have Windows 8 Pro x64 and Ubuntu 12.10 x64 successfully dual booting on GPT.

I have named my device under Ubuntu with the same visible name under Windows. All devices pair ok under each respective operating system but the pairs are unique and not shared between the two.

I am struggling to find a way to copy in my bluetooth peripheral keys from Windows 8 into Ubuntu 12.10. I can extract the keys from [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\BTHPORT\Parameters\Keys] from Windows but I can't find the "linkkeys" file that is supposedly under /vat/lib/blueooth/[deviceid]/ ?

I am guessing the keys are now in a different place or a different method of access (if at all possible)?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
