The problem is that ubuntu has non working configuration with regard
to bluetooth authentication. The easiest way (not the safest though)
1. Create /bin/bluepin file with the following contents:
echo "PIN:1234"
2. Make it executable:
chmod 755 /bin/bluepin
3. Edit /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf changing pin_helper variable to /bin/bluepin
4. Restart bluetooth daemons:
/etc/init.d/bluez-utils restart
5. now when you're connecting, use 1234 pin or whatever you used in
the first step.

i haven't looked into ubuntu conifiguration deep enough yet, to know
the better way to fix it (bluez-pin doesn't work the way it is

take care,
