I have an Arduino Bluetooth, and turning the microcontroller on doesn't seem to update the serial ports, no matter what order I open the IDE in. I tried it on a Mac and that worked just fine.  

Thanks for your advice,

I downloaded Arduino sketch onto a Linux machine, and it only lists dev/ttyS0 under the Tools/Serial Port menu. How can I tell it to find a different port (I need it to find one of the USB ports, not the 9 pin)? I've searched through as much source code as I have access to, and I can't figure out how to fix it that way. Thanks for your help,

Hi guys,
 I recently bought an Arduino Bluetooth. For some reason, the Arduino software only finds the first serial port for your computer, dev/tty0. Why is it like that? It's so inconvenient! Unfortunately, I only have a USB bluetooth dongle, and dev/tty0 is a 9 pin serial port. I'm surprised that no one seems to have run into this issue before, or maybe I just haven't searched far enough back.

 I tried to fool around with the source code to get it to recognize a different serial port, but I couldn't actually find the uncompiled program code, just the peripheral files. Probably cuz I'm a noob. I can try again, but an alternative solution occurred to me:

 I know they have 9 pin to USB converter cables, but can the signal for a 9 pin serial port get converted undamaged to a USB signal? I didn't realize that could be an issue, but my professor was just voicing his doubts that that would be possible.

 Does anyone have any suggestions for any of these problems?
 Thanks bunches,

Hi guys,
 I got my Arduino BT paired with my computer, and verified the connection in python. But for some reason, the Arduino Sketch program only has one serial port listed in the menu, and it's not one I can at all easily connect the Bluetooth dongle to. I would think this would be easy to change, but there aren't any apparent ways to do so. Does anyone know how to add serial ports to the list Sketch has? Thanks!

Erm, stupid question, but this should work just fine if I have a Duemilanove, right?

OK, thanks! That helps.

Yeah... I was hoping to use the USB as a quick power solution while I figure out what to use permanently. I'm completely new at this... I'm sure it shows. My next post in this forum is about the core of my problem, which is what is the best power source to use?

 I just got my Arduino Bluetooth board, and I expected it to have a standard USB connector on it as advertised. It has nothing on it I recognize as a USB port, despite the fact that the Duemillanovaes I see on the web have them. What is going on? Do I have to buy an attachment and solder it on or something? If so, where do I attach it?

Thanks bunches,

Another nOOb question. I don't know what power supply to get for my Arduino Bluetooth. Any suggestions?
