-It's almost the same as for Mac OS-X. There are several bluetooth managers, depending on your distribution and desktop environment. Some of them don't work very well, you might have to install a better one. The process ​are very similar ​as to OS-X for setting-up the bluetooth pairing and SPP (serial port profile), in the end you have a device probably called ''/​dev/​rfcomm0''​. You can use screen in the same way as described previously. One difference though, once OS-X has seen the rootooth, you'll always have a device file in /dev to connect to it, and the system connects to the device as soon as you use the device file. In Linux, you have to explicitly setup the bluetooth serial port before getting a device file you can use with screen. All the commands with the rootooth are the same after this point.+It's almost the same as for Mac OS-X. There are several bluetooth managers, depending on your distribution and desktop environment.
