My personal notes collected while messing with Ubuntu 6.06 (server) on my Mini-itx M10000 Nehemiah based server (with the OS running of a 2GB CF card, and a Hauppauge PVR-350 for experimental reasons), Ubuntu 7.04 on my IBM ThinkPad T23 and Ubuntu 7.10 on my T40p.

Apple Bluetooth Keyboard in Ubuntu
I've been having a lot of trouble getting my Apple Bluetooth Keyboard working in Ubuntu with my D-link DBT-122 usb module.

I followed this guide: HOWTO: Apple Wireless Keyboard (Bluetooth)

I managed to get the computer to find the keyboard but it wouldn't actually connect to it... It turned out to be quite a simple problem though. I didn't have the Bluetooth applet running, so I never got the pop-up window that asks for the key! :)

Quick solution. In one terminal window, run:

and in another window run:
sudo hidd --connect 00:1B:63:F9:A7:B6 (of course, your id number will be diffirent...)

Then type in a 4 digit number on the bluetooth keyboard and the bluetooth-applet should come up with a pop-up asking you to type in the key on the laptops keyboard.

The only thing left is that I can't get the keyboard to automatically reconnect to the computer when the keyboard has suspended itself. I just runn the hidd command again on the laptop (no need for the bluetooth-applet, the computer and keyboard are already paired), and the computer connects to the keyboard.
