While at a flea market in California last winter, I picked up an USB belkin bluetooth dongle, thinking that it was time I learned some things about bluetooth. Well, I first got it working under vista (which I hate), just to see it the darn thing worked. I then spent about 8 hours trying to get it working under xp.
I am wanting to convert my PC from windows to Mint. I have a USB WI-FI adapter which does not come with a linux based driver. IS there any way I can get this adapter to work?
The USB adapter is a Belkin N600 DB.
I've been looking at ways to wirelessly stream music from my laptop to my hifi amp. Many of the wifi solutions work out quite expensive. I came across this, which so far the seems the cheapest and easiest way, using bluetooth with a Belkin Bluetooth Music receiver.
I'm trying to get my Belkin F5D8053 v3 adapter to work with Ubuntu 11.04.
Being a Mac (ex Windows) user, I find 11.04 easy to use and I feel right at home. I don't see what the fuss with Unity is but that's another topic.
I already have a wireless card and it works. But I want to use the Belkin to get N connection speeds.
I've read a lot about options for getting bluetooth audio in the car, and even started a thread on it. But after thinking about it more, I realized that if I was going to have bluetooth audio in the car, I might as well be able to take calls in the car, as well. I tried the Belkin adapter, and it's great for receiving music and calls, but the sound from my end on calls is disappointing.
I have been trying to get bluetooth working correctly on Linux for a while now. I am using two systems that are having identical issues: Linux Mint 15 64-bit & Ubuntu 13.04 32-bit. Both are using the Cinnamon desktop.
