Enabling DUN in Bluetooth settings crashes Control Center
Last modified: 2013-08-01 12:20:32 EDT
Description of problem:
Enabling DUN in a paired phone settings area causes gnome-control-center to crash.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Pair a mobile phone using Bluetooth (in my case it was Nokia E72-1)
2. Open Control Center and go to the Bluetooth area
3. Select the phone in "Devices" list.
4. Click "Enable DUN"
** Message: has_config_widget (MAC) DialupNetworking
** Message: Default Bluetooth adapter is powered
** Message: dun_start: starting DUN device discovery...
(gnome-control-center:(PID)): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: attempt to retrieve private data for invalid type 'DBusGProxy'
Ability to choose phone connection with NetworkManager(nm-connection-editor would be necessary anyway...).
I'm sure my phone *does* provide mobile broadband and Bluetooth DUN functionality, I used it with Fedora last year.
Adding the Regression keyword. This used to be one of the new features in Fedora  and is now broken. Dan, any ideas?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is 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 change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
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.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
