bluetooth pairing fails

under opensuse 12.1 and 12.2 with KDE 4.9 I have the following problem:

when trying to pair a bluetooth device I receive the message that the pairing was successful, but one second later the connection is lost again.

/var/log/messages gives the following sequence:
Mar 18 10:49:29 xxx bluetoothd[5518]: Discovery session 0x7f0dfa4e3e90 with :1.22396 activated

any ideas on how I can get the device paired?


trying to connect via pybluez results in the error message “52, ‘Invalid exchange’.”

is there a problem with bluez?

can anything be derived from that error message?

the solution was that the device may not be paired :X

I also could not get devices paired using kde’s bluedevil.
