If its via bluetooth, will not you need those drivers for your machine? Packages that will handle bluetooth devices? I have never used bluetooth devices with Lucid, but my guess is you will need drivers for it.
With 10.04, there is no xorg.conf. You can explicitly create it with Xorg -configure command if you need.
