Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 476302
gnome is unable to display bluetooth devices
Last modified: 2009-03-04 20:09:29 EST
Description of problem:
Either action with bluez via gui, that used to display available BT devices (like hcitool scan) is just empty list. But hcitool search command, executed from the console while dialog is "thinking" makes BT devices to appear in the list.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
reproducible with bluetooth applet v1.8
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Right click on BT applet
2.select either send files to device or browse files
List with BT devices available
Also, actual behaviour of gnome bluez applications is different; nautilus-sendto is unable to send the file which is being happily transferred via bluetooth-applet (of course, with "help" of hcitool scan as described upper).

Did you mean "hcitool scan"?
Anyway, even that doesn't work for me. That is, hcitool scan does find all devices, but it doesn't affect the applet / dialogs in any way.
All I get is an empty list, always.
Just compile an install bluez-4.22 from updates-testing repository and something gets better: device discover works from gnome-bluetooth-applet when "send file/browse " is issued
But "Setup new device" still fails...
This should be fixed with the updates that followed.
