hi tim,
thanks! i'll give it a go.

I'm using fedora.  I found some instructions for debian and gentoo (and
tried to make them work on FC but they wouldn't  work).  I've had in install
a 3rd party bluetooth adapter even though the computer has one built in
(i've followed all the instructions I can find about that too and still not
got it to work)
