I have a "lite" (diskless) system, with xfce. I need to use it with a bluetooth keyboard (Logitech Cordless MediaBoard Pro™ for PS®3).
On 9.04 I used hidd --search perfectly. In 11.04 or newer seems that such method does not work anymore.
I found also this guide, but it does not works for me.
I'm testing all of it also on a standard 11.04 installation, with absolutely same results.
Note: the code "0000" is first inserted on pc an after on bt keyboard.
oscar@oscarbuntu:~$ hcitool dev
oscar@oscarbuntu:~$ sudo bluez-simple-agent hci0 00:07:61:b4:ef:a2
Enter PIN Code: 0000

Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply,
the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout
expired, or the network connection was broken.
When I press enter on the keyboard "Release" appears. Wait about 18 seconds, and the error appears.
