Input devices are now catered for in the mainstream release of bluez-utils, since version 2.7, via the 'hidd' daemon. This requires a patch to be applied to the kernel, though, which can be downloaded from http://www.bluez.org/. Run the HID server as root: # hidd --server Then connection to your input device # hidd --connect AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF Change AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF for the Bluetooth address of your keyboard or mouse.
