Not to be picky but blueman is already in the karmic repositories, a simple 'sudo apt-get install blueman' is all thats needed. It seems wrong to add a PPA for jaunty to karmic.

Nice article you got here. It would be great to read a bit more concerning that topic. The only thing I would like to see on that blog is a few pictures of any gadgets.
