Bluetooth support in Linux

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey, I am thinking about installing Linux as a second OS on my desktop, but I need it to have bluetooth support, as my mouse and keyboard are both bluetooth. So far, all the distros I have tried do not have bluetooth support. Do any Linux distros have bluetooth support out of the box?

This may help : http://www.holtmann.org/linux/bluetooth/

Gentoo seems to from the looks of things

Most of the bigger distros I believe support bluetooth. The problem is, do they support yours. I'd do a google search of something like linux and then model of your keyboard and mouse and see if anyone got them to work.
