Description Carl Roth 2008-05-22 16:22:25 UTC
Description of problem:

When I click on the bluetooth logo in the systray, I was expecting the file
browser to launch into the bluetooth:// navigator (like in F8).  Instead I get a
popup:

  Protocol no supported
  bluetooth

and then I get a blank file browser window.

Bluetooth pairing works fine (via KBluetooth-->Configuration).  My device (a
cellphone in this case) is properly paired with a bluetooth USB dongle on the host.

Is it having trouble finding the bluetooth.protocol file?  The kbluetooth RPM
installs it into /usr/share/services; I also see a /usr/share/kde4/services
directory.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

kdebluetooth-1.0-0.41.beta8.fc9.x86_64

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kbluetooth
2. Restart desktop or launch /usr/share/autostart/kbluetooth.autostart.desktop
3. Click on bluetooth icon
  
Actual results:


Expected results:

Could not find a matching report upstream.  Please file a bug at
http://bugs.kde.org and add the upstream bug report information to this report.
 We will monitor the upstream bug for resolution.

This is filed as http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=162492.  I wasn't sure if
this was a kde issue or a packaging issue.


Comment 3 Gilboa Davara 2008-05-29 13:43:26 UTC
kdebluetooth doesn't seem to support the latest version of bluez.
Problem has been reported upstream (long ago), but upstream seems to be dead.
(More-or-less).

I'm trying to free some time, to check if I can fix the problem myself.
For now, I'm over booked :(

Keeping this bug open for now.

Comment 6 Ville Skyttä 2008-09-21 05:52:22 UTC
As noted by comment 5, kdebluetooth4 is on its way.  It's a necessary update, but unfortunately it currently contains only a subset of the old kdebluetooth's functionality, and one of the missing things is the bluetooth:/ protocol handler.  So as of now, this is not something we can fix and it is expected that the bluetooth:/ protocol is not found, we hope that the functionality will reappear in future kdebluetooth4 releases -> CANTFIX.
