Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1056682
Gnome login screen does not allow bluetooth keyboard to work
Last modified: 2015-06-29 10:39:49 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a Bluetooth keyboard (via USB adapter) that I use. In F19 when the login screen presented itself the Bluetooth keyboard was active and working. I used fedup to upgrade to F20 and now my Bluetooth keyboard is no longer active until I login. Once I login I type a key and it activates the Bluetooth capabilities and the keyboard works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time login screen is displayed (after reboot or logout)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot machine
2. Observe that bluetooth keyboard will not work
4. Bluetooth keyboard works
Bluetooth keyboard does not work until I log into Gnome
Bluetooth keyboard works on Gnome login screens
Regression from F19.
I've continued to check with each new kernel version that comes out in Fedora, still no luck.
I am also experiencing since updating to F20.
Created attachment 921488 [details]
systemd service "Bluetooth autostart"
The problem is not specific to Gnome, it's the same with KDE.
As a workaround till a proper fix is developed, I have attached a systemd service to autostart the bluetooth adapters during boot, independent of the window manager.
Copy the attached file #921488 to /etc/systemd/system and execute
systemctl enable bluetooth-autostart.service
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
