    I think you have to pair the keyboard with the PS3, if you can.

    If it's running standard GNOME, check around in System > Preferences > Bluetooth or something.

    Also, once it's paired, it should be pretty easy to use after that.

    Hmm, interesting. I tried pairing Ububtu with a headset and that failed because it was only sending information along a channel for about 10 seconds.

    So, either your hardware is incompatible with UBUNTU, or it's just a regular troubleshooting error that requires a few notches.

    For now, we'll assume it's the latter.

    Wouldyou mind giving me as much information on the keyboard as you can?

    Model number, brand, etc.

    yup.

    I installed ubuntu again so does that mean I have 2 ubuntu's (if so how do I delete one) or does one overwrite the other? i'm not very happ I spent $60 on a keyboard that won't even work with what i bought it for.

    Here is your problem, you must get through the installation with a USB Keyboard, and once the system is up and running, the bluetooth will be a piece of cake.

    So, get through installation with USB, then you can revert back to your Bluetooth.

    Hmm, I'll have to research that a bit, it can't be too hard, don't worry.
