If your lifebook is hardware compatable then: Ubuntu 11.04 Install via the command line

sudo apt-get install bluez python-gobject python-dbus

python-gobject and python-dbus are needed for the python scripts bluez-simple-agent and bluez-test-device to work.

Discover the hciX location of the dongle with:

hcitool dev

Devices:
        hci0    00:11:95:00:1A:CF
