Bluetooth Dongle not recognized or usable on Xubuntu on HP Pavillan
So I've migrated recently from Mandriva to Xubuntu. In some ways I've been impressed how many things have "just worked" and didn't need any configuration, vs Mandriva. However, one of these is not Bluetooth.
I have a Parrot Bluetooth dongle, which on my XP machine I can do anything via Bluetooth that I can think of doing.
I've tried to install everything availabel in the Repos that has to do with Bluetooth that didn't requrie KDE libraries and I'm still not getting any luck with the PC even recognizing that I have the dongle plugged in. At least not that I can tell.
Ideally I'd like to get this configured so that it could do everythign I coudl do on Mandraiva, like sync my BlackBerry phonebook wireless, transfer photos wirelessly to my Parrot Photo Viewer, & transfer files like MP3s to my wife's PocketPC.
Though the feature I'd most like to take advantage of, that I never did get working on Mandravia, not that I ever tried to much, is to configure A2DP, or stereo Bluetooth. So that I could stream audio (music or podcasts) to a wireless sound box "Parrot Party" and stero Bluetooth headset "Motorola S9"
