Bluetooth keyboard without GUI in Slackware 13.37


I am trying to connect a bluetooth Keyboard to my HTPC (Slackware64 13.37) an it seems as if I am completely lost.
The keyboard works perfectly when using Blueman in XFCE. But as I don't load a Window Manager, I can't use Blueman. I googled several tutorials for connecting bluetooth devices but bluez seems to have changed a whole lot during the last versions and I just can't find a working setup.

When connect via "hidd --connect 7C:1E:52:A8:90:XX" the Keyboard works, but simply putting this in rc.local obviously does not.

Does anyone know any working tutorial for this? Or any hints? The bluez documentation does not seem to exist....

What happens when you put that into rc.local? Is there an error?

That's how I used to get my Bluetooth input devices connected on my Slackware machine.
