    I bought the Apple Aluminium Bluetooth Keyboard to use with my PS3. With Sony's firmware it works flawlessly. But when I boot into Yellow Dog Linux, it's not there. I've tried to find a way to make it work, but it's a little over my head, I'm afraid...

    Can I just buy a USB bluetooth dongle, and use that to have Linux see my keyboard as a USB device? Will any bluetooth dongle pair/work with the Apple keyboard?

    Does Linux have the correct drivers for the bluetooth dongle? What about the keyboard?

    With a Mac it would work fine, even if you don't have bluetooth built in.
