Question USB Bluetooth Adaptor - Printer Not Connecting

Just bought a HP OfficeJet mobile printer Model # 100, and I using Ubuntu OS 13.04, and the Bluetooth Adaptor I have is a Rockfish Model # RF-MRBTAD. The Bluetooth setting in Ubuntu is set to “On” and the Visibility Tab/Button is set to “On” in the Bluetooth Setting Box/Field or Window in Ubuntu, and when I click on the + (plus) symbol in the lower left hand corner, the USB Adaptor sees or finds the new HP Office Jet mobile printer model # 100, But when I click on in the New Bluetooth Device Setup Box the tab to continue to setup the new Device,(meaning the new HP printer) I keep getting a message stating the following: “Setting Up OLJ41MY325B11QD Failed” and it will not set up or complete the process of parring the the computer and the printer to work. I should mention, the printer works fine using the USB cable, But I want to print wireless, I've got to many cables now I've got to deal with. And when I bought the printer from Office Depot last week with a 14 day non restocking fee, I was told this printer would work with Linux including the Bluetooth feature, which at this point doesn't seem to be the case. I don't want to return the printer to Office Depot, any suggestions? Also I notice the Rockfish USB Bluetooth Adaptor on the package I have now and is using states it's compatible with Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. Do you think I need a USB Bluetooth Linux adaptor and is so, can you recommend any Bluetooth Linux Adaptors to me which aren't going to cost me an arm and a leg to buy? Thank you in advance for your suggestion and help.

Some documentation that might help to determine that your dongle is working. You might have better luck paring via the command line.
