Linux Mint 13 (Maya-Mate): Solution To Pairing Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard


Linux Mint 13 (Maya-Mate)
I've been working on trying to pair a (Apple) wireless keyboards for a month. Finally, I found a solution.

Blueman Bluetooth manager, would occasionally flash an error message: "Fail to lauch Thunar. You can enter an alternative browser in service self." I opened Blueman, clicked on local services, scrolled down to the Advanced option, and opened it up. The Advanced option box had thunar/obnx %/ written there. I still don't have a full understanding of what Thunar does but I surmised it is some sort of file system that's needed to run anytype of wireless / bluetooth device. I found Thunar in Package Manager, but when I marked them for installation I recieved a warning, "these packages are unstable, haven't been tested, and could compromise the security of your computer". I Ducked search again and came upon a thread... were someone mentioned that Thunar was a no go, as was Nautilus so, his other option was to try Dolphin. I tried Nautilus and I recieved the same warnings as I did with Thunar. Again, I searched Package Manager, clicked the first two packages for Dolphin for installation.

dolphin 4.4.8.5-0Ubuntu0.1 4.4.8.5-0Ubuntu0.1 file manager
kdesdk-dolphins-plugins 4.4.8.5-0Ubuntu0.1 4.4.8.5-0Ubuntu0.1 dolphin VCS plugins


I restarted my computer, and after the second attempt to pair, the Apple and e-Source wireless bluetooth keyboards paired and were reconized. All bluetooth devices pair without issues. Note: Make sure your USB dongle is ver 3.0, ver 4.0 has a different kernal. Yahoo! Peace.
