Description Jesse Dhillon 2011-09-09 01:31:31 UTC
Description of problem:
If a device such as a bluetooth headset is already paired to a computer, and initiates a connection by being powered on, the connection will be accomplished. However, the bluetooth menu entry for the device will show the connection status as off or disconnected. If I press alt+F2, enter 'r' into the dialog and restart the shell, the status of the menu item is then correct.

Instead, if the device is entered into pairing mode first, and then one goes to the bluetooth menu entry and turns it on, then the pairing will also be completed but the menu status for the device will be correct.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Pair a bluetooth headset with the computer and by selecting bluetooth -> Setup new device and walking through that process as usual.
2. Turn off the headset after being paired.
3. Turn the headset back on.
4. The menu entry for the headset will indicate no connection is present.
5. Go to bluetooth -> Bluetooth Settings and the connection indicator will show that a connection to the device is indeed present. Sound can also be configured to pass through the device.
6. Press alt+F2, type 'r' and press enter. After the shell restarts, check the bluetooth menu, the device will now show its status as being connected.
Actual results:
Device is not shown to be connected when it is.

Expected results:
Device should show itself to be connected, and toggle switch should be able to disconnect device.

Additional info:
Please let me know what I should attach. There are no relevant messages in /var/log/messages or .xsession-errors

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-07 15:27:00 UTC
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
