    Angry Belkin Bluetooth wireless usb printer adapter on ibex ubuntu

    edit: I sent it back.

    I'm trying to get "Belkin Bluetooth wireless usb printer adapter F8T031" working on Intrepid Ibex. When I try to use the bluez bluetooth applet to add the hardware, it sees it as "BELKIN_PRT_46A193" and fails to automatically connect to it. When it trys, I notice it brings up the same connection screen that it did for my wireless keyboard where there is a 4-digit number you enter to lock it to that computer but for only a sec before it says it failed.

    I would like to know if it will work on ubuntu 8.10 and if it can, how can I set it up?

    I tried the instructions here and the "hcitool scan" in terminal found it as

    Scanning ...
    00:02:72:46:A1:93 BELKIN_PRT_46A193

    I tried the "sudo hidd --connect 00:02:72:46:A1:93" and it came back "sudo: hidd: command not found"
