Description of problem:
When I try to send files to my mobile bluetooth phone with either the obex
object push client or with obex file transfer (both provided by bde-bluetooth
which is not part of Fedora Core yet) it does not work, and I see an error
org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.bluez.PinAgent was not
provided by any .service files
When I change the pin helper in /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf from
"dbus_pin_helper" to "/usr/bin/bluepin" everything works fine: I get a pop up
asking for the pin and after entering this the data transfer is running as it
First, please change the summary of the bug to:
bluez-pin D-Bus service not automatically started for X sessions
If we'll add a .service file, it'll activate in the context of the system D-Bus
daemon and therefore wouldn't connect to our desktop. For now, there's no way to
add D-Bus .service files which'll activate only within the context of a session
The solution for now might be plugging bluez-pin into /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/
so it'll get started for each session.

We already created /etc/xdg/autostart/bluez-pin.desktop which ought to have the
desired effect. But the bluez-pin package _really_ ought to be owned by someone
who isn't entirely clueless about such things.
Topic changed as requested.
One thing to add, because it is about desktop sessions, and I want to be
clear: I use the KDE desktop.
I was told that /etc/xdg/autostart/bluez-pin.desktop should be honoured by all
Could it be that this bug was filled by someone who hasn't restarted his X
session after installing bluez-pin?
We obviously need a method to start bluez-pin in all user sessions upon
installation; it's technically unnecessary to wait for a restart. D-Bus services
could work just great for this *if* we could specify that the service should be
started within sessions only.
@Ilya: nope, bluez-pin was automatically installed on my machine so I
definitely restarted X several times after installing bluez-pin.
If KDE isn't honouring the /etc/xdg/autostart file, please file a bug against KDE.
