I have installed every Bluetooth package I can find to include the Bluez blueman and Bluetooth manager.

i also did a command last night that involved "bluetoothd" but for the life of me can't find it again and it's not in my terminal memory under root or user... anyhow, it showed a error at the dbus and something about the identity...

anyhelp would be greatly appreciated.
