Both Fedora and Suse (listed in your profile) have Bluetooth packages so just use your package manager to install bluez-libs and bluez-utils. Once you've done that, ensure the device is plugged in and then run 'hcitool dev' in a terminal. If you get output similar to the following then it's working fine.
	hci0	00:10:60:A9:28:26
