Description Bastien Nocera 2007-12-02 09:13:20 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #407551 +++

Description of problem:
When I use the "Bluetooth manager" applet in F8 to make my laptop visible and
initiate pairing from my cell phone, I get the pop-up message from the Bluetooth
manager that says: "Pairing request for '<phone>' (<address>)". It is not clear
at all that I have to click on the message to get the PIN entry dialog.

I have seen some images on the Net of the "Pairing request..." pop-up that
includes the text "Click to open the passkey entry dialog". If that text had
been present on the Fedora version of the pop-up, my experience would have been
much much more pleasant.

We should use libnotify's ability to have buttons in the popup.

We now use buttons in bluez-gnome CVS.
