Bluetooth on Ubuntu - A pleasant surprise

Filed under
Ubuntu

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.

Full Story.

Good to know!

I like this site because everything I think about doing with Linux, someone has already tried. I also like the "Edgy Elf".
