Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 234407
bluetooth-applet hides even when asking for a PIN
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:00 EST
Description of problem:
bluetooth-applet has a mode in which the icon is never shown. Unfortunately, the
only indication that the applet gives to prompt for a bluetooth PIN is to have
the icon blink. When the icon is never shown, it isn't blinking.
Therefore, there is no indication whatsoever that a password is entered, and the
user is left guessing what on earth they ought to do to get a password prompt.
Proposed remedy: Override the "never show the icon" mode when user interaction
is really needed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Could you please test with bluez-gnome 0.8 that's now in Fedora 7's
I've finally tried with bluez-gnome-0.8-2.fc7, and the problem indeed seems
fixed. (FWIW, I'm now using the thing in an otherwise KDE environment, so that
might skew the result a bit.)
