INSTALL THE SUPPORTING BLUETOOTH SOFTWARE:
Install Blueman with Synaptics Package Manager

LINKING the COMM PORT: SYMBOLIC vs HARD
Code:

ls -l /dev/ttyS*


crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 4, 64 2010-11-14 21:37 /dev/ttyS0
crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 4, 65 2010-11-14 21:37 /dev/ttyS1
crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 4, 66 2010-11-14 21:37 /dev/ttyS2
crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 4, 67 2010-11-14 21:37 /dev/ttyS3

Plug the Bluetooth ODBII Reader into the vehicle's ODBII Port.
Click on the Bluetooth Icon in the Top Right Toolbar, and select the
Device once it is detected. Select the PIN, or try 0000. Open Blueman,
and start the Serial Service. This should create /dev/rfcomm0, and there should
be a additional BLUE DOT on the Top Right of the Blueman Icon in the Top Toolbar.
Code:

ls -l /dev/rf*
sudo chmod 766 /dev/rfcomm0


Create a HARD Link to an unused COMM Port. We need to REMOVE
/dev/ttyS3, and then create a HARD Link with:
Code:

sudo rm /dev/ttyS3
sudo ln /dev/rfcomm0 /dev/ttyS3
sudo chmod 766 /dev/ttyS3


Open your ODBII Software, and select the proper Communications Port & the correct Baud Rate.
