Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 698186
bluetooth applet doesn't appear and bluetooth light doesn't activate
Last modified: 2011-05-06 13:24:21 EDT
Description of problem:
After the current software upgrade to bluez, I've lost bluetooth. I installed a fresh copy of fc15 beta, and out of the box I had no bluetooth. I played around and used "systemctl enable bluetooth.service" to get the bluetooth daemon to start automatically. I had to manually start bluetooth-applet and for a while I had an active bluetooth light on my laptop and a bluetooth icon in gnome-shell. I had hooked up a bluetooth mouse.
After a software upgrade on 4/19/2011 I lost bluetooth again and the above steps don't activate it either. "systemctl status bluetooth.service" reports:
bluetooth.service - Bluetooth Manager
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service)
Active: active (running) since Wed, 20 Apr 2011 04:18:21 -0700; 28min ago
Main PID: 1013 (bluetoothd)
└ 1013 /usr/sbin/bluetoothd -n
And when I start bluetooth-applet manually on the command line it just hangs reporting nothing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
bluetooth-applet wouldn't do anything because gnome-shell has its own implementation, and we don't want both the gnome-shell and the bluetooth-applet showing up at the same time.
In any case, bug should be fixed in an update shortly.
