    Default Bluetooth problems

    I recently bought a BT dongle, a USB2 Asus. I then went through Yast2 to find any Bluetooth software and installed them, mainly Bluez and KBluetooth.

    Unfortunately the apps do not see any adapter, but when I use hwinfo, I get the following;

    hwinfo --bluetooth
    06: USB 00.0: 11500 Bluetooth Device

    To me it looks as though the adapter is seen by the kernel, but the software to use it is not seeing the adapter. Looking at the System services I see bluez-coldplug enabled and running.

    I did a test on a Fedora v14 live DVD and it worked with no problems, no additional software was needed.

    Any help?

    No luck.

    KBluetooth has all the entries greyed out and Bluetooth Monolithic does not see any adapters still.

    Is there a list of Bluetooth libraries anywhere that details what I should have installed?

    Unfortunately my laptop with bluetooth is on loan so I can't go and check for you

    There is a hardware list here:
    HCL:Bluetooth - openSUSE

    And yours looks to be the second in the list.

    Me too, i've a problem with bluetooth (running Suse 11.3, Smeegol , on a Samsung N150). I don't know which is exactly the frontend used by Smeegol (Connman ?). In any case, i see the bluetooth devicesaround (a Nokia phone, an Apple PB running MintPPC). I can send files but i cannot search and get files. When i click on <Send Files> it works, but when i click on <Search> or <Connect> (to the configured devices) nothing happens.

    Is there, eventually, an alternative bluetooth manager i could install. Blueman, for what i understood does not work with Suse 11.3 ?

    TIA

    bluedevil works great for me in 4.6b2 never tried it in earlier kde releases but there was some buzz about it then too. So I'd imagine it works fine there.

    It does not exist in my repositories. Anyway, i saw that there is an rpm package of blueman (but for another distro). Could i install that nevertheless or would it ruin my system?

    TIA

    Because at least in my experience with Ubuntu (on a Vaio) and Debian/MintPPC on a G4 PB it works just fine and provides all needed services (even without installing obex).

    At least me, i'm not going anywhere with the bluetooth frontend coming with Smeegol. In the repositories i don't see anything else, what could help me out . . . (?)

    TIA

    PS. I don't think Smeegol is somewhat related to KDE (rather to Gnome, but not sure on this (?) ).
