Question Bluetooth problems on ubuntu.


Hi,
I'm a complete newbie to Linux. I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 on my acer laptop. everything i need just works, but i have extreme diffuculty to connect my nokia n73 to my laptop using bluetooth. Want to connect to the internet using 3g.
I can pair my phone and the laptop, but that is where everthing stops. In windows its is so easy, but cant get it to work in Ubuntu.

There is alot of places on the net where they tell u how to do it, but to understand that, you have to know linux/ubuntu.

Please help, as I realy do not know what do do...

Thanks for any helpfull help!!

So you found instructions, but didn't follow them?

The guide is here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BluetoothDialup
