Configure Bluetooth for Linux

Configure and set up a Linux computer to work with your Nokia smartphone over a Bluetooth connection.

Bluetooth support on Linux is a complex issue. As with many emerging technologies, competing implementations of Linux Bluetooth support exist. The two main implementations are Affix and BlueZ. Affix was developed by Nokia and is now hosted as an open source project at SourceForge (http://affix.sourceforge.net/). BlueZ is also available (http://www.bluez.org/) and is the official Bluetooth stack of the Linux kernel.

Although Affix is a mature and functional project, BlueZ receives more testing and has been more widely adopted. For this reason, this hack focuses on the uses of the BlueZ Linux Bluetooth stack and libraries.
