can't get bluetooth dongle to work!

Postby acidwashtofu » Sat May 10, 2008 3:04 pm

Hi all, Linux noob here and first-time forum poster. My first Linux experience has been mostly positive and with determination I've managed to figure out nearly everything I've tried for so far. One thing still bothers me: Can't get my bluetooth dongle to work! I'm using Daryna and I have installed the latest bluez debian package but I guess it hasn't installed any gui components, nothing useful, and there is surprisingly little info in the forums or other linux guides. All I need is basic and easy functionality to transfer pics from my camera, Kodak V610, which works fine out-of-the-box in WinXp without 3rd party drivers. lsusb info below. Thanks in advance for any and all help!!
