Would you believe that I don't know?, in the box there was nothing, even a trade or model :| :| :| :| , I probe it with the kernel version in Gutsy, and it worked, I can't give more information, sorry :oops: :oops: :oops:

Four instances of the thing?!
Anyway it is a Broadcom and I have had reports of success with the Linux driver - I don't know if that goes for USB as well
Follow the description for the Linux driver in the wiki

One of the instances is for my usb mouse, and the others appears when I conect my bluetooth adapter

I could solve the problem partially, I can send files but I can't receive them. I did this:

I installed the bluez stack, but it doesn't seem to work

After I found this page http://linux6400.wordpress.com/2007/04/ ... comment-34 and I followed the instructions, then I said I can only send files but I can't receive them.

Sorry - for a moment I forgot it was a bluetooth adapter when i saw Broadcom - the wifi problem with Broadcom seems more or less solved - the wiki does not help you of course.
But I found this
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BluetoothSetup
I also found a blog claiming that you must not plug in the adapter in a USB hub but rather directly into your computer

Finally

Postby starkey on Mon Sep 03, 2007 5:27 pm

Finally, I did it, I made it work. http://linux6400.wordpress.com/2007/04/ ... comment-34

I did a clean Reinstall of Mint(just for fun :) :) :) ) and I did the steps from this page http://linux6400.wordpress.com/2007/04/ ... comment-34

and finally It is working fine.

Thank you for the ideas.
