Unfortunately the open source nature of Linux is the reason we can't
provide technical support for it. While at the core it is all
basically the same, the number of possible combination's of
hardware/software setup for Linux based systems means that it is not
possible to provide support. Once more devices start running Linux
distros (which is starting to happen as you say) then it will become
easier to support them.
Looking at what you have on your site one possible silly thing to
say is after you enter the passkey on your device enter it onto the
keyboard and then press enter (also on the keyboard). The keyboard
in HID mode has no set passkey and it is normally set at the same
time as you pair it.

If I don't get past this it's going in the bin / back to the reseller /
on ebay. I haven't tried their suggestion yet as I've been away, and I
am now busy upgrading my freerunner to the latest build.
hope that helps
