Pairing Bluetooth Keyboard on Windows and Linux using the same receiver

Dennis Guse

Found a solution on the web with authenticated connections here (the original description is far more detailed).

Short description (so that it is still available for me ;) ):

hivexml system | perl -ane 's/</\n</g; print' | grep -i 'key="YOUR BLUETOOTH ID WITHOUT : "'
sudo service bluetooth restart

I can confirm that this works using Ubuntu 12.10 and Windows 8 with a Apple Wireless Keyboard.

Alternative solution without authentication (I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS FOR A KEYBOARD) can be found here.

UPDATE: Still works with 13.04
