Please disregard the last comment; it's caused by a mixture of bad UI
and my misunderstanding.

I do think the UI isn't doing the right thing - it should pick a default
action based on class(es) provided by the device, not just try to use
obex to do file exchange. It also doesn't provide ANY indication that
selecting a service in the preferences will display a configuration
panel allowing you to connect to devices providing that service. *bad
UI! sit!* .

Ahem. Anyway. At least the end result works smoothly and easily; it's
just the configuration UI that's a bit odd.

If anybody reading this encounters the same confusion I did:

- Right click on the GNOME bluetooth applet
- Choose "Preferences"
- Select the "Services" tab
- Select the "Input" service
- Below the panel that appears in the blank space under the service list, click the newly created "Add" button
- Select your bluetooth input device.
