Blue tooth soft wear

Asked by Jean Emond on 2010-11-28

I was wondering if there is or will be soft wear added to the Ubuntu down load that will have blue tooth soft wear added to it? I am asking because this is how i connect to the internet is through my phone using blue tooth i could use a cable connection but it is not as stable. I am hoping there is because i would like to down load the latest version at some point soon. Thanks

Ubuntu has carried the bluez package for awhile and while I have not used it to connect to the internet with a phone, I have used it to download pictures from a phone. Older Ubuntus (Intrepid? Jaunty?) may have a version of bluez that does not allow entry of a pin for your device, but a patch is available to add that capability (or just get the latest package)..

Can you help with this problem?
