I just got a Dell XPS M1330 laptop, and have set it up as a dual boot with
Vista and Fedora 8. I have a bluetooth Dell Travel Mouse, and it works with
Vista, but I can't get it to work with Fedora.
When I turn the mouse on, there's no indication that Fedora has seen the mouse
so I right clicked on the bluetooth icon in the upper panel and then selected
"Browse Device". The display shows "Dell BT Travel Mouse" and indicates that
it's a mouse. I select that and then click connect. I get this in a window:
Couldn't display "obex://[mac addr of mouse]".
Check if the service is available.
The input service is running for bluetooth, so I'm not sure what "service"
needs to be available. Is there something I should look for to make this
