Comment 1 Dag Bjerkeli 2006-11-27 20:23:10 UTC
I experienced the same result in Fedora Core 6 on i686, having the same version
of gnome-bluetooth-manager. Starting the gnome-bluetooth-manager from a terminal
gives some warning messages that might be relevant.

Comment 5 Rogue 2006-11-30 19:21:38 UTC
I am no python expert, but from looking at the code here is what i have deciphered:

AppBar extends from HBox, and HBox has a two argument constructor which is
over-shadowing the 3 argument constructor of AppBar, when it is invoked using
just two arguments.

The third argument in AppBar is an enum on PreferencesType. Now, i am not sure
how we would specify a preferences type in the UI, but here is what I did:

changed #142 from:
    self.statusbar = gnome.ui.AppBar (True, True)
    self.statusbar = gnome.ui.AppBar (True, True, 0)

This got rid of the null pointer assertions and the UI comes up fine.

Now, when I do a scan for devices, it hangs at retrieving device names! And
there are no messages on the console either.

Bluetooth Device Manager: 0.7.0
Fedora Core 6

Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2006-12-14 16:10:07 UTC
fixed with gnome-bluetooth-0.7.0-10.2.el5

Comment 7 Erik Bussink 2006-12-17 01:42:29 UTC
I've downloaded the gnome-bluetooth-0.7.0-10.2.el5 for my x86_64 install using
the path you gave me, but I cannot tell if this bug is now fixed or not. 
The gnome-bluetooth-manager application isn't in the RPM
gnome-bluetooth-0.7.0-10.2.el5.x86_64.rpm anymore. Is the removal of the
gnome-bluetooth-manager done on purpose or a mistake ?

Comment 8 Harald Hoyer 2006-12-18 09:18:50 UTC
Removed on purpose, you should be using "Send To" from the nautilus context menu
on files. Btw, it's removed in newer upstream versions as well.

Comment 9 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-02-08 00:42:33 UTC
