http://ubuntuforums.org – hello, all. I recently purchased an inexpensive bluetooth dongle for my laptop running lucid 64-bit. the device, however, doesn't seem to want to work in ubuntu. most functions (everything but turning the device OFF) fail, causing gui windows to hang, and i mostly receive messages relating to the device timing out. before you ask, it is not the device: the dongle works flawlessly in windows 7 after being autodetected and autoinstalled. i attempted to boot from the lucid cd, and the problem persisted.
