eee-pc and bluetooth pairing question

Hi all - I am new to this forum and linux or more specifically xandros, but I have a question on how to pair a jabra bluetooth to a usb bluetooth adapter. I looked a various posts, and have successfully identitfied the adapter, address, it is up and working. Then when I reset the adapter with /etc/init.d/bluetooth restart, I get a message that says hidd hcid sdpd can't listen of hid control channel, permission denied hidd rfcomm.

I looked up the message and found a response for regular linux, to edit the hcid.conf file but I have not found that file on the asus eee 701.

Is it possible to pair the jabra to the blue adapter for skype? I have three different adapters, I sudo hciconfig hci0 up shows they are all visible, but can not find any other devices, jabra or phone.

Thanks for any suggestions in advance!!

The Xandros shipped with the EeePC 701 is very outdated & does not support a lot of hardware very well. I suggest dumping it in favor of a more modern & robust distro such as Ubuntu Netbook Remix.

For something more EeePC specific, you can also try Eeebuntu or Easy Peasy.
