Uhhh, more information...

What distrobution/desktop environment are you using? Bluetooth in linux is relatively easy to set up but more information would be fantastic.

Sorry.


I'm using Libranet 2.8.1 with kernel 2.4.21... I'm also using KDE 3.1.

Also what I want to do is to establish a network connection with my bluetooth access point through my dongle. I don't have to share my internet connection, just connect to the access point.

thanks

You'll need to go to www.bluez.org and install bluez-libs and bluez-utils. Then install kbluetoothd and it'll all become very easy
