I just got the Hewlett Packard Slim Bluetooth Keyboard (KT-1281) and a corresponding HP BT Mouse. While the mouse is quickly connected and works smoothly on Ubuntu 12.04, the keyboard is detected, but establishing the connection always fails. For installing I use the Bluetooth Manager in System Settings, so no terminal.
My question is, if you have experienced the same or a similar problem and maybe found a solution. Or do you know another way for installing a bluetooth device? Or do you think it would be better to send the keyboard back? Can you recommend a BT keyboard with no numpad and no Apple assignment of keys?
Thank for your help!
