Thread: Bluetooth not working After installing openSUSE 11.1

  1. #1

    Default Bluetooth not working After installing openSUSE 11.1

    Bluetooth was working in KDE 4.1 in openSUSE 11.0 with no problems. I install openSUSE 11.1 and now the bluetooth icon that should show up in the system tray no longer shows up. If I hit Ctrl + Esc I can see kbluetooth4 in "System Activity". All that's changed is I did a fresh install (I don't do upgrades) of openSUSE 11.1 with the same KDE I was running in 11.0. I would like to know what's broke even if I can't fix it. I hate not knowing why something isn't doing what it's suppose to be doing.

    Thank you for this post! Obviously, I am not the only person with this kind of problem.

    I am configuring an ASUS eee-PC 1000h with a built-in Broadcom bluetooth device.

    hciconfig tells me that everythhing is fine except for any KDE4 application not starting. They either don't start at all or crash right after.

    When I issue the command
    Code:
    rfcomm connect rfcomm0
    I will be asked to type my PIN into the cell phone, but there is no way to change my PIN in the notebook.

    How can I continue?

    I have found the exact same thing here, 11.0 bluetooth worked fine but did not in 11.1RC1 and now still does not in 11.1.

    Have noticed some error messages in log files but nothing spring out yet.

    not sure yet why but will see what I can find over the weekend ( not much time at the mo, shopping with SWMBO yada yada ) :-(

    just to let you know are not alone.

    Same problem here with a Lenovo 3000 N200: bluetooth was working with 11.0. After update to 11.1 bluetooth doesn't work anymore. Because I'm a (Linux unexperienced) user only I have no idea what could I do. Any hints?
    TIA, Ron.

    I'm not interested in messing with my current configuration. Aside from enabling the Packman and Update repo I want to try to keep everything as close to the original DVD as possible. So if any of you want to try this and see if it helps, let me know. Try adding these KDE 4.1 repos and updating your packages and tell me if that fixes any thing.

    Same problem here. I have a BT Targus mouse that has been working flawlessly under several versions of openSUSE, but no more. The upgrade to 11.1 apparently messed up kbluetooth.

    System: Lenovo X61s (built-in BT)

    Hi
    In Gnome, using the sdptool pops up a window to enter the pin number,
    eg;

    Code:
    sdptool browse <mac address>

    OK, I gave it a shot. Installed those repos and fired up a
    Code:
    zypper up
    ...however, what shall I say? Nada. Zip. Same ****. Bluetooth keeps crashing.

    In my case KDE4 and KDE3 are installed on my Lenovo. Bluetooth worked in v11.0 with both. However I work with KDE3 because it's better than KDE4 (for me).

    Just the same situation.
    SuSE11.1 on Acer 7720Z laptop.

    "kbluetooth4" starts, but "kbluetooth4-devicemanager" fails with error:
    process 10034: arguments to dbus_message_new_method_call() were incorrect, assertion "path != NULL" failed in file dbus-message.c line 1070.

    While using 11.1RC1 in KDE3.5 with kbluetooth and downgraded bluez drivers (to 3.x version... something like 3.36) it was all ok.
