Do you know how to fix the issue? (I’ve re-installed it already)

	<Konk>	um... I have one question - but no account. may I ask it?
	<jkwood>	Go for it.
	<Konk>	Thanks.
	<Konk>	kdebluetooth isn't starting at all, when trying to launch in OpenSuse.
	<tpatzig>	berniyh: no luck. ask here/hime twice
	<Konk>	I already re-installed...
	<Konk>	?
	<tpatzig>	Konk: kdebluetooth in openSuSE 11.1 is broken and not useable
	<Konk>	why did they implement it then?
	<tpatzig>	the version within 11.1 does not work together with the bluetooth library
	<Konk>	not good.
	<Konk>	and what do I use instead?
	<tpatzig>	the new version, (v0.3) will be released today or tomorrow.
	<Konk>	Hey, that sounds like a miracle. ;)
	<tpatzig>	there will be an online update for that
	<tpatzig>	be patient
	<Konk>	Thanks.
	<tpatzig>	if you want to try ... checkout the latest svn
	<Konk>	I'll be posting that information officially on OpenSuse. may I?
	<tpatzig>	just wait some minutes. i'll do an official release, when i have tested everything and everything works as i expect
	<Konk>	minutes?
	<Konk>	Dude, that would be awesome!
	<tpatzig>	dont forget you need to update kdebase therefore. and these packages are not ready for 11.1 (KDE 4.1)
	<Konk>	umm... means?
	<tpatzig>	as soons as i am fine with the new kdebluetooth4 package (must be in the next minutes) i will diff the changes from solid and patch the kdebase package. when it is patched it takes some time, until it gets rebuild in the buildservice
	<jkwood>	tpatzig: I'm glad to hear it. I'll wait for 0.3 to update my build script then. =)
	<Konk>	yehaaa! Thanks, guys. I really appreciate your effort into this.
	<Konk>	Have a great weekend. :D

Now… THATS what I call awesome. rotfl! Seems like I talked to them just minutes ahaed of the release. The update will be available SOON.
Be patient, guys.

Enjoy your weekend.

Also waiting for this in other to get bluetooth working and also post notes on how to get Thunderbird, Lightning OpenSync and Nokia all working together … might try a USB cable in the mean time (need to buy one :frowning: now).

Hello coffeyca,

following forum thread shows how bluetooth works with KDE3 components under KDE4:
openSUSE 11.1 KDE3 Bluetooth solution - openSUSE Forums



Good. Worth a shot. Those guys told me that the update would be avavilable through the updater applet. Has anyone experienced progress?
