  SMART Technologies (Pen/Drawing tablet)
  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

Everything actually works quite well.

What was done to make it work:

Install libbluetooth2 package.

Put the slate into discoverable mode (press black button underneath).

As admin, open a terminal, enter hidd --connect=XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX where the X's represent the bdaddress of your slate.
If you don't know what the address is, enter hcitool scan in a terminal.

It should then connect. If the first go does not work, try connecting it again.

Additional notes:

The tablet seems to run with much less problems in Gloria than Lisa.
