First some system details:
]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.6 (Tikanga)
]# uname -a
Linux mycomputer 2.6.18-238.el5PAE #1 SMP Sun Dec 19 14:42:44 EST 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
]# rpm -qa | grep blue
I see two problems and would like to resolve both but initially focus on the shortes path to pairing my device, if possible.
1. GUI doesn't work the way I have seen it represented. I see the Bluetooth Manager icon in the system tray. When I mouse-over it a pop-up showing "Bluetooth Manager" appears. When I right-click on the icon I only get two menu options: Discoverable (with a checkbox) and About. The other options appear to be missing.
2. Pairing fails. I have a Bluetooth USB device installed and recognized but pairing simply doesn't work.

I hope I have provided enough information to troubleshoot. Please let me know if I have left anything out.
