Big Bluetooth Problem
First thank you, for takeing the time and reading this. I am from Austria so please forgive me if i make some grammar or writing mistakes. i hope i´m able to describe everything clearly enough.
i have to admit that i´m a total newbie in linux so please also forgive me if i have to ask some "stupid" questions,... but i promise to use at first the search form in this forum and on google before posting needlessly...
Yesterday i installed bt2 on my laptop without any problems. i wanted to use my bluetooth dongle and there everything started. It said "Failed to connect to the SDP server" and also a message in the right corner from KBluetoothD saying "You may replace bluez's pin helper program with kbluepin; it is located in /opt/kde/lib/kdebluetooth now." and a checkbox for not showing this again.
Everything i can do now is to click okay on the sdp server message, then it comes two more times with the same text. when i want to close the kbluetoothd messagebox with the ok button nothing happens, also i´m not able to mark the checkbox for not showing again, i have to click on the x on the right corner like in windows for closing it...after 1 or two seconds a warning is showing up, saying that the window is not rersponding... so i have to terminate it...
could anyone please help me, i really want to use that dongle.
some additional info that may help:
when i go to system/system information/usb devices

I managed to use my Bluetooth dongle thanks to a post found in Tutorial&Guides:
search for "Bluetooth GPS Tutorial" in that section of the forum
