    Angry Install Bluetooth adapter / Make a Connection

    Hello everyone:

    My laptop doesn't have bluetooth, so I want to use a bluetooth adapter to connect with my sixaxis gamepad. How do I setup the bluetooth device? And how can I make a connection, for example to my cellphone?

    Regards

    I have the same issue. I have an HP slimline on which the Windows XP build finally took a massive dump so I took the leap to Linux. Now having a 42 inch tv as a monitor is a pain because I can't get my bluetooth adapter to work. I'm lost in the terminal but I get these responses from commands I've seen others suggest running:
