Hi.  This is a kde list, not an OpenSuSE list.  The chances of getting 
good OpenSuSE specific help are going to be better on OpenSuSE specific 

That said, while I don't have a machine with bluetooth and don't run 
OpenSuSE (I'm a Gentooer), a bit of googling suggests that while Linux 
support for that device exists, it's relatively new (February/March of 
this year), and may well not be in the kernel OpenSuSE ships, yet.  You 
may have to run a newer, testing kernel, or build your own from source, in 
ordered to get support.  It's likely you'll need to wait for support in 
2.6.39 (upstream release probably in June) or even 2.6.40 (probably 
September), however, as the google results I saw didn't indicate it was in 
the upstream kernel, yet.  It's thus possible that OpenSuSE won't support 
it with their kernels until the next release, but again, I'd urge you to 
ask on the OpenSuSE lists or forums, as I don't know their schedule or 
update policy, and it's possible I'm missing support in existing 
alternative drivers or am otherwise off base.
