Linux Bluetooth driver
This card will work with the standard Linux Bluetooth drivers (btusb).
The Bluetooth device is implemented using USB, and you might be able to enabled or disabled it with thekey combination.
On recent Distros, you can also enable/disable it with echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/thinkpad_acpi/bluetooth_enable if you have the thinkpad_acpi kernel module installed.
Linux Modem driver
The Linux driver from SmartLink supports this device.
Latest version of this driver is 2.9.11.
The ALSA modem driver may be used instead of the proprietary ones from SmartLink (see README ALSA mode), as it avoids tainting your kernel, and does not require a recompile each time you update your kernel version.
For Debian this is sl-modem-daemon deb, and for Fedora there is a slmodem rpm in the RPM-Fusion nonfree repository.
Once you have installed the package, edit /etc/sysconfig/slmodem and set INTERFACE=ALSA and ALSA_DEVICE=hw:1,0 and optionally the country (if you do not set the country, it will default to USA).
