    Question My Apple Wireless Keyboard won't connect properly

    Hello, I've just moved to another computer but I want to use my wireless keyboard but it doesn't want to pair. I've tried loads of time but sometimes the code will disappear and just say "Pairing with keyboard failed". Other times it will work, and I get a box asking me if the device is okay to access a service and accept it. Nothing happens.

    Can anyone help me (this microsoft keyboard is really mucky and too big!)

    You must give more info there if you want to get help.

    Your ubuntu version. Keyboard, Bluetooth or USB ? What did you do until now ?

    I'm running standart i386 ubuntu 10.04 release. The keyboard is Bluetooth.

    I've just tried using the standard Bluetooth tool included in ubuntu and this 'blueman' tool. Blueman is interesting. Both tools can 'pair' with the keyboard but it doesn't work typing.

    Blueman has an option to "Connect with Input Service" which fails
