Exclamation My first questions (Bluetooth)


Hey all,

I am a true Linux newbie. My boss just purchased an ASUS EEEPC 8G and he would like to use this Parrot USB Dongle (BT 2.0 +EDR) with the computer. Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

Thanks!

did you try pluging it in? did it not do anything, do you get errors? you should have bluetooth libraries installed, something like bluez-libs.

i think the eee pc runs xandros, so you should be able to get phone support from them.

I'm not sure what software the Eee comes with, but it should be a cinch to install bluez if it isn't installed already. Plug in the dongle and see what happens.

i'm not sure if the eeepc comes with xandros network or synaptic. try searching in the menu for both. launch it, and from the program do a search for bluez-libs. if you do have that installed and it's still not doing anything, then try searching for and installing kdebluetooth. either way, plug it in then post the output of 'lsusb'
