Pi 3B/3B+ Kano-compatible bluetooth keyboards?

help

#1

Hello-
I’ve just upgraded our Kano to a Pi 3B+ and wanted to use a separate, larger bluetooth keyboard than the stock keyboard/trackpad that came with the kit. When I try to pair our Anker 7221 it says that the pairing is unsuccessful (though when I look via the command line, the anker keyboard is listed and it says that it’s paired); either way, the bluetooth light on the keyboard continues to flash and no input is logged in the computer.

Anyone have any success pairing a non-kano-keyboard with these models that have onboard wifi & bluetooth? Thanks for any help.

We are using a spare Apple Magic Keyboard that I had available - works like a charm.
