Internet & Networking Following my earlier article about creating a Bluetooth access point with your OS, here is my quick guide how to do just that with Arch Linux. You will need two Bluetooth-enabled devices to start with, and some patience as setting up Bluetooth is problematic on all OSes (each one with its own quirks).

Not the 'Linux way'

Sure, this is a solution, but it's not really the 'Linux way' of doing things.

There should be a way to enable connection sharing from the GNOME/KDE network manager panel.

Someone really needs to write a shareware app to set this up. I know I don't want to waste hours tinkering with scripts on the command line like this.

I know theres a market for a product like this, because I would pay $10 for it.
