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 #1 SMP Sat Jan 6 19:54:29 CST 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

How reproducible:

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”
Actual results:
Crashes with a request to submit a bug.

Expected results:
Find and communicate with the Bluetooth device

Additional info:

which version of gnome-bluetooth? Did you update?
Comment 3 Nick 2007-01-12 21:36:23 EST
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. :-)

wow... two versions installed.. try:

$ rpm -e gnome-bluetooth-0.7.0-10.1
Comment 7 Nick 2007-01-16 09:31:03 EST
That uninstalled the problem program.  However I no longer have "Bluetooth
Manager" and no obvious way to scan, setup, and use new Bluetooth devices.
Comment 8 Ondrej Vasik 2007-06-27 04:48:19 EDT
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.
