This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 20 development cycle.
Changing version to '20'.

I confirm it on Fedora 20.


Bluetooth icon is missing until you connect it to one bluetooth device.

> Bluetooth icon is missing until you connect it to one bluetooth device.

The icons is only supposed to be shown when Bluetooth is in use, see the "update" section on https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/GnomeShell/Design/Guidelines/SystemStatus/

Stupid idea. Should be shown when Bluetooth is runing.
Comment 5 Robb Romans 2014-02-11 20:14:00 EST
I have the same concern. In previous releases, I could click the icon to control Bluetooth settings. If it truly only appears when a device is connected, that seems like a step backward.
Comment 6 Adhidarma Hadiwinoto 2014-02-12 09:03:32 EST
Bluetooth icon should be shown even when it is not in use to provide easy method to connect bluetooth device.

Current situation makes unnecessary chicken and egg problem.
Comment 7 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 05:19:15 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '20'.

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.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 20 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 this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

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.
Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2015-06-29 08:16:45 EDT
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
