Connecting a Perixx Bluetooth Keyboard to a Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

perixx_bluetooth_keyboard_02

An excellent how-to by Matt Hawkins via raspberrypi-spy.co.uk:

I’ve recently got hold of a Perixx Bluetooth keyboard (Model 804) which I plan to use with my tablet for typing and future Raspberry Pi projects. I chose the Perixx 804 as it uses a UK keyboard layout. The black version is a standard PC layout (” on the 2 key) whereas the silver version uses an Apple style layout (@ on the 2 key).

This tutorial will explain how to pair this with your Raspberry Pi. While developing this tutorial I used the black version with the PC-style UK layout as this is the layout I use everyday on my other devices. The process will probably work for any Bluetooth keyboard so feel free to try it out if you’ve already got a device you want to use.

Check out the tutorial here!
