I have used a Raspberry Pi 2 with Arch Linux with a LogiLink Bluetooth 4.0, Adapter USB 2.0 Micro and an 84×48 Nokia LCD Module Blue Backlight Adapter PCB with a SPI interface.
This project should work on any Linux distribution and platform with adjustments but I have included detailed instructions for my setup.
