gnome-bluetooth unable to connect to input devices
Last modified: 2008-04-07 12:23:58 EDT
Description of problem:
gnome-bluetooth unable to connect to input devices such as my Dell Travel Mouse.
Even though hcitool scan shows the device.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open gnome-bluetooth preferences
2. go to services
3. select input service
4. Add input device
5. Dell mouse not listed in devices dialog
6. open terminal
7. run hcitool scan
8. Dell mouse listed in devices.
Repeat 1-5 on F8 laptop, and the mouse is found and is usable.
On my development box, the gnome-bluetooth gui seems incapable of see devices,
even though hcitool can see them.
I should see the bluetooth mouse listed in the available input devices to
connect to, just as in F8.
I'll gladly run any necessary troubleshooting scripts you need to review.
This was working last Friday/Saturday. I'm not sure exactly what's broken.
It's quite possibly something lower down than gnome-bluetooth, but I'm not sure
how to confirm that. hcitool scan is reporting back as expected.
Which version of bluez-gnome, and bluez-utils are you using?
Please test with bluez-utils 0.30 and make sure you have restarted the bluetooth
I can reproduce it here. DiscoverDevices doesn't work anymore.
Should be fixed in bluez-utils 3.30 in rawhide.
Any reason to leave this in needinfo ?

None at all... in fact things are working again for me. I'm closing the bug out.
