[kde-linux] (kde)bluetooth on Debian Sid

Hi there.

I've been trying to convince my system to pair with my mobile phone for the 
last few days, and I've run out of ideas how to make it work.

My computer can find my phone if I set it to visible and I've finally got it 
to accept the PIN about 50% of the time. I can then use OBEX to transfer 
files back and forth. Anything else just fails.

I'm trying to use kdebluetooth under KDE 2.5.8 and the help file says I might 
need to configure incoming connections "use the KDE control center and go to 
Internet & Network -> Bluetooth services, or right-click the kbluetoothd tray 
icon and select Configuration -> Services...". I don't have either of these 
options and using the command line hciconfig tool I am unable to find a way 
to get the PC visible (I can enable iscan OR pscan manually but I can't 
imagine I'd have to become root after every boot just to enable connection to 
my phone).

Connecting FROM my phone, for whatever service never works btw.

ANY hints, tips or websites with advise would be greatly appreciated because I 
am going a little weird in the head by now... ;)
