Bluetooth on Ubuntu - A pleasant surprise
When I ditched my Windows XP for Ubuntu Edgy Elf last month, bluetooth connectivity between my PC and my cell phone was the only task I wasn’t sure my Ubuntu machine would be able to perform as easily as my Windows machine did.
After a couple of weeks of using Ubuntu, I finally took out some time to setup bluetooth as I thought it would be a fairly ‘power user’ task with lots of console commands and apt-gets.
Boy was I wrong.
Here’s a comparison of the setup procedure for my bluetooth dongle on XP and Ubuntu.
