Bluetooth keyboard for LUKS password
Last modified: 2017-06-07 04:06:11 EDT
Description of problem: I'm not sure which component to pick for that, so please fix that accordingly.
The problem I have is that I'm using a Bluetooth keyboard (Microsoft Surface Ergonomic Keyboard) and my ssd is encrypted with luks. At a boot time when passphrase is prompted, I cannot type password since Bluetooth is not available at this point yet. I've tried to search for ways to add Bluetooth support to initramfs, but still couldn't do it. While my wireless headphones do say that they are connected at luks prompt (I have no way of checking whether it's true) keyboard does not. Is there a way to add a proper Bluetooth keyboard support for that? This will save a lot of trouble for me.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot laptop
2. Wait for LUKS passphrase prompt
3. Try typing a password
Actual results: Cannot type password, since keyboard is not connected
Expected results: Typing password successfully with Bluetooth keyboard
Additional info: I think since Bluetooth keyboards are becoming more popular thanks to big companies, it will be useful to have at least an official/semi-official docs on how to achieve that.
