http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm having trouble getting my computer to recognise any bluetooth device, including my Wiimote and cell phone. I have a USB Bluetooth dongle that appears to be working. When I plug it in, I get the bluetooth symbol in my device tray. The USB Bluetooth dongle also works in my other laptop that runs Windows Vista, although I had to download a driver from bluesoleil.com to make it work. I downloaded and installed an Ubuntu version of the software from bluesoleil, but when I try to open the program, nothing happens. I'm running Jaunty on an old Gateway tablet. I'm not certain what the make and model is for the dongle, but here's a link to the page that has all the info for the product. I first posted this question in the HOW TO: Wii remote in Ubuntu 8.04 thread. Additionally, there are two threads with very similar issues that appear to be unresolved: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...oth+USB+Dongle http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...oth+USB+Dongle (Hardware)
