Thread: Bluetooth not working After installing openSUSE 11.1

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.
