Can anyone recommend me a Linux friendly Bluetooth adapter for my computer? I'm moving my computer and I would like to be able to use my Bluetooth headphones with my computer now when my stereo is too far away.

@hund Asus has one. Don't know the exact model but it works fine.

@hund mine identifies as `ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode)`

It was listed as "plug and forget" and it really lived up to that promise.

A label reads "RockeTek" but I guess it's just that. A label.

@hund I use a Volans CSR4.0, but it's not great. I have to keep it plugged into my keyboard to be able to use my headphones from more than about 2m away, and even then the range is only about 10m.
I have successfully used another, but I can't be bothered digging it out since it has even worse range.

@PublicNuisance I'm going with a adapter that's using the same chipset. :)
