BlueTooth application

Anybody knows a bluetooth application that works ?

Not like kbluetooth/KDE 3 that crashes anytime I run it.

And where I can found it !

Thanks a lot in advance for any feedback (I need this to put some files opn my movile phone)

best regards,


Have you tried blueman? Search Results

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

I didn’t try blueman but I don’t have that program in any of the list of my repositories. Where I ca find it ?

Abou the “stay susbscribed” checkbox, I’m kinda lost. Where I can uncheck that option ? And why is recommended to uncheck it ?


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 ?



So from the command line do you get output from the following three commands;


ps -ef |grep blue

/etc/init.d/bluez-coldplug status

Here is the output:

again, thank you so much for your help

No blues-coldplug tunning hmmm, I use the Gnome desktop (running 11.4 RC1 at the moment) will need to boot into 11.3.

Can you post the output from;

zypper se -i blue

Here it is:

agunet:/home/agunet # zypper se -i blue

I just gave up with this bluetooth issue.

Today (tuesday, Feb, the 15th) I went to the store, and change my bluetooth-usb device by a cable usb to connect with my cell phone, and that works !!

So, it’s solved (no the way I though, but irt solved) I can now copy data from my cell to my computer and reverse

thanks for all
