Debian Sarge on IBM X40 howto - Part 9: Bluetooth

Today, while I was fiddeling around with my laptop, I tried transfering a file from my Nokia 6630 mobile phone to my laptop. I didn’t expect it to work becauce last time it didn’t. But this time it just worked!!

I have installed a few bluetooth Debian packages like: bluez-pin and bluez-utils. I use Bluetooth for GNOME (also packaged for Debian).

I have no idear what I have changed since the last time I tried it, but now I can extract all the pictures I have taken to my laptop. The only thing I remember having altered from the default settings is the device section in /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf:

device {
    name "IBM X40";
    class 0x100100;

Look at the gnome-bluetooth mailinglist for more information about why I altered this.
