    Question Motorola H500 Bluetooth and Skype?

    I have a laptop witn Jaunty on it and Bluez with a bluetooth dongle. The dongle works fine and I've paired my headset. How do I set the headset as both microphone and speaker for use with Skype though? I've found a couple of different walkthroughs and none have helped me get things working. Any help would be appreciated!

    I had this working fine in Intrepid, but so far it's a no-go with Jaunty.

    I would like to achieve the same thing as Pnzrdrgoon. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and have Skype installed on my machine. The bluetooth device is a Motorola H500 and it is already paired with the computer. Does any one have links to step-by-step instructions to set up the headset as the microphone and speaker to be used with Skype?

    Thanks.

    Did you get it sorted? I can't get the microphone to work on my h500 to use with skype in Karmic. Any help?

    Re: Motorola H500 Bluetooth and Skype?

    I just got an H500 and a linksys dongle second hand from a friend. when I plug in the dongle, the bluetooth icon comes up in the notification area. when I go to set up a new device, I see a couple of phones, but not my headset. I'm powering it on by holding the button for about 5 seconds until the light blinks a few times in rapid succession then once every second or so. any ideas?
