I have an hp compaq nx7010 laptop. This laptop has bluetooth hardware but fedora doesnt seem to "see" it.

Any help would be good

if your system doesn't have bluetooth packages,

# whoami
# yum install bluez-*

Also on FC5 with no bluetooth. Not much info or HOWTO's available either! Most Bluetooth threads here are un-answered...

Do yum install kdebluetooth
in konsole write command "/sbin/service bluetooth start"

Then start kdebluetooth from Kmenu .

Also for hassle free bluetooth experience you have to disable SELinux for bluetooth daemon from system-config-securitylevel
When you start kdebluetooth the icon in the system tray turns blue if the bluetooth hardware is detected. else remains remians grey.
