Hi Calvin,

We're currently using Debian Squeeze with TDE 3.5.13 and
Debian's kdebluetooth 1.0~beta8-5.  I don't recall whether
that came from Lenny or an earlier version, but it's still
in the archive:

I don't know whether you need all these but I have these
"*blue*" packages installed on my TDE+Gnome laptop:

# dpkg -l | grep -i blue

blue skin for mplayer (irrelevant)

I've never found kdebluetooth particularly easy to use but it
still works in TDE's Konqueror to transfer pictures from my cell.
