    Found something that says that the packaged version of the server software will only run using the OS that it was built with - which is Windows 7 in this case (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1...ll-load-failed)

    If you are using Windows XP, I would suggest trying the "DIY way" to install the server software (see webos-bluetooth-remote-presenter - Use a WebOS device to remote-control presentations on a Windows PCs - Google Project Hosting).

    I will try to fix this and post a new version of the server software.

    I changed the build procedure according to the stackoverflow link. Maybe it works now for Windows XP:

    Downloads - webos-bluetooth-remote-presenter - Use a WebOS device to remote-control presentations on a Windows PCs - Google Project Hosting

    Thanks a lot, this works really well with windows 7 and my palm pre! Great job.

    Are you planning on adding any more features to this? For example some on screen arrows that would move the mouse when held and on screen buttons for left/right click would be awesome. Not sure how hard it would be though to add these features.

    Still a really good app though .

    Still the same error messages for me on XP

    Thanks for testing.

    No clue what is going on on Windows XP. The two Windows XP boxes I have access to do not have supported bluetooth drivers.

    I guess this works when installing all parts (Python, Pywin32, PyBluez) separately.

    I uploaded a new release, 1.0.2

    This version can now use virtual COM ports to make a bluetooth connection. Maybe this works on Windows XP now, as well as for non-Microsoft and non-Widcomm bluetooth drivers.

    If you decide to upgrade, you need to upgrade the client AND the server software!

    I'm thinking about mouse "cursor" and buttons support - for example instead of the pgup/pgdown on-screen buttons.

    Running on XP. Upgraded both components. Error log seems to indicated that client is working but I do not get actions performed in the XP application. Not sure if something should happen in the server window, but it does not proceed beyond "Waiting for data on client socket..."

    Did the server program ask for a port number? I've seen on my XP machine that there are "server" COM ports and "client" and etc... you have to enter the server COM port number at that prompt.

    If the server program prints out "Waiting for connection on RFCOMM...", then COM ports are not used. Maybe the server program should not try to automatically select a connection method, but ask the user which one to use. I guess that the COM port method works with all drivers on WIndows XP and 7 (the downside with that method is that the user has to enter a port number).

    I uploaded a version of the server exe that does ask for the connection method (http://code.google.com/p/webos-bluet...3.zip&can=2&q=)

    Did you check if the device ("/dev/tty.Bluetooth-PDA-Sync") exists?
    What version of OS-X do you use?
  13. #33  
    mac os X 10.6.8 is my version

    This is the same version I used to test.
    Please make sure the device is paired and the device file exists. Maybe you have more than one device file?

    Just here to thank you for your work and to report that the App works with the Pre3, Win7 & Open Office Impress. Any way I can buy you a coffee?

    Thanks, good to know it works on the Pre 3!

    Thanks to Daniel Franzen, there is now a Linux version of the bluetooth server, downloadable from webos-bluetooth-remote-presenter - Use a WebOS device to remote-control presentations on Windows and Linux PCs and Macs - Google Project Hosting .

    Check the DIY installation instructions on how to install this.

    Again thanks to Daniel Franzen, I could release a new client version with the following changes:

    - Fixed the non-functional enter key on the keyboard, it can now be used like every other key.
    - Added a "forward swipe" action, configurable in the Preferences menu: alt-tab, pg-down, pg-up, and enter (or nothing at all).

    I have tried many times and spent many hours trying to configure this software. It seems it will do what I need but cannot get it to work.
    I have enabled connectivity between Pre3 and laptop. Bluetooth presenter is running but there's no control evident on my laptop.
    I have downloaded and installed Python (have no idea how to use it though!).
    Please help. I'd like to control music via my Pre3 whist walking around a hall teaching dance.

    Hi Paul,

    What OS and version are you using?
    Is there any text in the window on the server side?
    Are the controls (up, down etc..) enabled (ie, not greyed out) on the device?
