I want to connect my bluetooth keyboard (macintosh) at Startup.

But what should i say, i have to enter a PIN, without a keyboard is connected...

Is there a way to connect my keyboard without to buy a USB-Keyboard?

My mouse won't connect, too - i have to enter a PIN there as well!

EDIT: I have a Thinkpad x60s, too. Is there any chance to pair my thinkpad (ubuntu) with my machine (ubuntu) via bluetooth?

Oh man... perhaps borrow a USB keyboard from someone? Other then that, if your mouse worked you could use the on-screen keyboard... but I think you are in a pickle of a spot there. –  TheX May 1 '12 at 20:28
I entered about thousands of terminal commands to get Ubuntu work on my MacMini, and now i cannot do anything because of those stupid things... -.- Why Ubuntu don't let me enter my PIN with the keyboard, OS X does it. It would be so great to have a work-around... –  2DD8847 May 1 '12 at 20:37
How you've managed to receive the "Enter pin" dialog? –  Yuriy Voziy May 5 '12 at 20:56
It pops up automatically. When i turn my apple keyboard on, the dialog appears. I found no other way to connect the bluetooth-keyboard and mouse then buying a USB-Mouse. Perhabs something important for the Ubuntu-Developers. –  2DD8847 May 9 '12 at 12:32
