Question KbluetoothD not pairing with my mobile

Hi all

Here's my problem... My T610 mobile phone can't pair with my PC running Suse 9.1 through a Bluetooth USB dongle.
I can connect from my PC to the phone and have been able to use Kmobiletools to send files to the phone - but when I try to pair the device I get a passkey mismatch error on my phone...
I've had a look and have found kbluepin which looks to be a popup app... but it doesn't pop up when I try to connect to the PC. I've also installed bluez-libs and bluez-utils... but am still lost.

Can anybody help me out the app to pop up or another way to pair the devices? Please

Somehow got it working... here's what I did:

in /etc/bluetooth I edited the file "pin" from Bluez to a number (2205)
Then entered:
hciconfig hci0 up
hcitool scan

Which gave me the address of my phone

modprobe rfcomm
rfcomm connect [phone address]

then entered the pin i modified in the pin file (2205)

And it's paired...

That's the spirit, if the GUI tools don't work the command line certainly will Not all mobile phones (I have a SE K700i and it doesn't, my old T610 didn't either as you know) will allow you to use standard characters in the PIN, just numbers which is why editing the pin file is important after a standard bluez install
