Difficulty with wireless keyboard


Hi,

I picked up a wireless keyboard and mouse set from Rocketfish and I'm having problems getting it to work with FC6, and possibly with Suse 10.0 (I haven't tried Suse yet). It's bluetooth wireless, I attempt to open the Bluetooth Manager, but I guess it doesn't have a GUI? Nothing was coming up, and when I looked at the processes that were running, nothing resembled a bluetooth processes. I could be wrong, though. The disc that came with the keyboard only had installation files for Windows. I don't think Wine is an option, is it? If it is, what are the steps necessary? I also checked the manufacturers website and I didn't see a sign of drivers for Linux. Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks,

Brandon

p.s. The mouse is flawless, picked it up right away.

After searching the internet some more, I didn't find anything conclusive. I will try to flash my BIOS and see if that helps any. From what I read Linux will usually pick it up if BIOS does. So, we'll see what happens. Any further advice is appreciated.

Thanks,

Brandon
