openSuse 13.1
KDE 4.11.5

And I posted in the wireless forum however from what I have read, and please correct me if I got it wrong,
I think that I would have a better chance of BT working if I were to switch the desktop to Gnome rather that KDE.
Or failing that, what combination of 13.1 and desktop environment would allow BT to work ?

Am I reading that correctly ?

However, I did try one recommendation which was to install the Gnome-Base and that made no difference in being able to discover devices.

Specifically, the device is a BT headset.
