    I use a Genius Navigator 900 Pro with Fedora 9 and it works really well(not perfect, but an overall good experience), it just takes some time to instruct the Bluetooth manager to connect to and use the mouse as an input device and everything else is automatic.

    And of course, since Fedora and Ubuntu uses pretty much the same Bluetooth drivers and software, you can easily do it on Ubuntu.

    Oh and by the way, this on a laptop, a Compaq Presario V3005TU to be exact.
    Think carefully before executing commands containing "rm", especially "sudo rm -rf ", if you require more information concerning this matter, read this.
    I am an experimenter, give me the most stable OS and I can make it unstable in a few hours.

    Looking back, this thread is more a support thread than one that befits itself a place in the Community Cafe.

    This thread has been moved to the Absolute Beginner section.
