I got a Cirago brand bluetooth dongle, don't remember the model!, it is recognized by kernel but not by Blue Devil, Blueman still crashes and doesn't open, this is the output from lsusb command:

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 045e:0745 Microsoft Corp. Nano Transceiver v1.0 for Bluetooth
Bus 005 Device 003: ID 05e3:0608 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB-2.0 4-Port HUB

I wonder if there is something to fix in the Xfce land as well...

I have installed (upgraded to) bluedevil and libbluedevil 2.0_pre1.
Sorry to say this, but bluetooth for KDE 4.11.3 is still a mess.
-The bt symbol is shown in tray now, ok.
-My own bt hardware is found and activated, ok.
-Searching for devices works (bt devices are found in nearby area), ok.
-Pairing seems to work, confirmed by my telephone (Samsung Galaxy S3), ok.

But my phone (Galaxy S3) is not added in bluetooth device list in tray, not ok.
Anyway, when sending a file from my phone to notebook, the error message says: file can not be sent to notebook,
not ok. There seems to be no connection between bt in symbol in system tray to show
I know, it's not your issue, it's KDE topic, Fabio. But just to let you know.

Ciao a te.

I'm using KDE 4.11.3 under Gentoo on my main laptop, and Bluetooth (Broadcom BCM2046 internal USB device) works fine. I can send files from my laptop to my Samsung Galaxy Note II, and vice versa. Bluetooth also worked in KDE 4.11.2.

KDE 4.11.4 has been available in Gentoo since 3 December, but I haven't got around to upgrading yet. Note sure if it will still work in KDE 4.11.4 until I try it out.

So the problem you're seeing may not be due to KDE per se.

The new bluez broke compatibility with pretty much everything. Bluez-5 is a hard dependency of GNOME 3.10. KDE is lagging behind, not really a distro fault...

Hallo guys...
Merry Christmas to all here!
It's me again, Linuxfluesterer. I was in holiday and also very busy in last weeks.
But yesterday I could download SL Daily (14.01) from 22/12/2013 KDE 4.11.4, 64bit with Kernel 3.12.5.
As written in headliner, my problem is still, that KDE bt symbol in system tray does not find a bt adapter, and this with the lates Daily SL I could boot up from USB stick with.
Here's some outputs:

As I said, though I have activated and by Kernel supported bluetooth hardware, my system tray bt symbol tells me (on left click), there is no bluetooth adapter found, pls connect one. Same message, when I open
Code: Select all
kcmshell4 bluedeviladapters

Is there anybody else than Fitzcarraldo, who can really find a bt adaptor in KDE system tray and more than, work with it?
I fear, if this bt won't be found and supported in KDE version 4.11.3 or up, I'll have to restore my backup including version KDE 4.11.2 with old bluedevil and bluez4 support and, so sad, I can't do any upgrades until, I can use bt at least with a Daily Build Live Sabayon, which I'll have to download frequently.
Or are there new informations about, what I can do to make my obviously existing bt adaptor known to KDE?
Any further help would be really appreciated (maybe as a Christmas gift???).
Thank you all in advance.

I'm guessing that this is why the init sequence just stops at bluetooth, and when I remove it and start it manually later, appears to work (though the init thread doesn't complete) yet it won't talk to pulseaudio?

I'm also guessing this means waiting until it all catches up?

If so, no worries. I can wait. I'll just stop trying to fix it myself.

Pls, what exactly do you stop and start manually?
Thank you.

I fear, there'll be a misunderstanding or resp. a problem...
I use systemd and in my system there is no /etc/init.d/bluetooth. This init.d protocol is used by OpenRc resp. Sysvinit.
The according bluetooth service from systemctl (Systemd) is running (activated) on my system ...
So, that could not help me. Anyway, thank you.

Hmmm...
Maybe it's time for a complete reinstall from scratch. I did start off with Sabayon 5 after all.
It's on my list when I get a new HD.

In the meantime, and following a quick search, I may try migrating across tomorrow.
