Description of problem:
Bluetooth Manager crashed after scanning for new devices. Now crashes every
time it's started. Originally it I was attempting to connect a Bluetooth
keyboard. I'm not sure if it is device specific, the device I was scanning for
was a “Microsoft Keyboard Elite for Bluetooth”
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux 188.8.131.52 #1 SMP Sat Jan 6 19:54:29 CST 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
The Bluetooth Manager will no longer start. It crashes every time launch it. I
have NOT rebooted my computer yet.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Bluetooth Manager
2. Select Scan, attempt to have it find the “Microsoft Keyboard Elite for Bluetooth”
Crashes with a request to submit a bug.
Find and communicate with the Bluetooth device

which version of gnome-bluetooth? Did you update?
The gui will not open without it crashing, so I can't open Help->About. If
there is a command line to get the version I will enter it in this bug.
I checked for updates and yum reported it was up to date.
After restarting the program still locks up.
open a terminal:
$ rpm -q gnome-bluetooth
gives you the information I need. :-)
From the commad above:
wow... two versions installed.. try:
$ rpm -e gnome-bluetooth-0.7.0-10.1
That uninstalled the problem program. However I no longer have "Bluetooth
Manager" and no obvious way to scan, setup, and use new Bluetooth devices.
Gnome-bluetooth-manager was removed from the latest upstream (and Fedora)
versions of gnome-bluetooth package. Was removed from current FC-6 version
too(first version with completely removed gnome-bluetooth-manager is
Closing WONTFIX, AFAIK upstream is working on completely new bluetooth manager,
so this old won't be fixed.
