Dear Tom and everybody

> Did you:  man hciconfig  or  hciconfig -h to get the command parameters?

By doing so, I get a a whole bunch of 'command parameters'. See the
list below. I would like to check at this forum which of them I need
to use to make the Bluetooth dongle recognisable and usable @ Kubuntu
