I have tried to use a usb bluetooth dongle both in feisty and in gutsy.
The dongle appears to work ok: it scans and finds devices, but the devices doesn't work correctly.
I'm testing with a Motorola HT820 Headset, but everytime I try to make it work, I get a kernel panic.
Usually the panic comes trying the btsco driver. I've had no success with a2dp.
Another problem is that the gnome-bluetooth applet can detect the headset, but when I try to connect to it, it shows an error message saying that it wasn't possible to connect. However that message shows an address obex://[MAC_ADDR], with the MAC of the device. It's interesting to note that it's trying to connect via obex, which I think is only for file transfers, not for audio devices. Moreover, when I make it connect with a2dpd -a <MAC> and ad2pd_ctl Connect, it (gnome-bluetooth-applet) does show the messages and asks for password. Yet, after connected, the device appears in the "Bonded devices" list, but not in any entry in the "Services" tab, not even in the "Audio service" entry.
