    Hi
    Have you tried blueman?
    software.opensuse.org: Search Results

    I would recommend you uncheck the 'stay subscribed' checkbox if you use the one-click install method.

    Hi
    In the link I gave you, use the "1-Click Install" off to the right. It
    will ask you on about the second page of the wizard to add the
    repository, but you can uncheck the box to stay subscribed.

    The reason is too many repositories can cause conflicts due to
    different updates. It's best to stay on the main four repositories,
    oss, non-oss, updates and packman.

    ok. Now I have blueman application with no added repositories.

    The only thing it doesn' work. Displays a message saying:

    "Connection to BlueZ failed

    Bluez daemon is not running, blueman-manager cannot continue."

    What do I have to do to solve this ?

    thanks

    Hi
    So from the command line do you get output from the following three commands;
    Code:
    hciconfig
    
    ps -ef |grep blue
    
    /etc/init.d/bluez-coldplug status
