The idea is that I am trying to pair my bluetooth headset. In which
case, I need to initiate the connection from the laptop. I am aware
about the other way around. My point is, if there is a UI available for
doing such pairing. I would like to know if it is possible to invoke it
through the command line directly. I understand that there is no UI /
application available right now for doing it. Just wondering why.
