Sorry for late answer...
I have tested BlueDevil 1.1.1-0ubuntu1 that's still in todays Kubuntu
cdimage and 1.2.0~rc2-0ubuntu1 from that kubuntu-ppa/experimental
No regressions found and new functionality works great!
Testing was done on todays Kubuntu live cdimage + two USB bluetooth
dongles: one Bluetooth 2.0 adapter based on CSR chipset and one
Bluetooth 1.1 (or 1.2) adapter based on ISS chipset.
- switch 'Discoverable'
- search for bt devices in range - both via 'Add Device'
option in BlueDevil and via Dolphin
- pair device - automatic and manual,
- browse files (obexftp) - selecting paired device from BlueDevil menu and
on discovered devices in Dolphin.
- open photo from phone via obexftp in gwenview
- send file from PC to phone (via BlueDevil menu option and Dolphin)
- pair PC with PNA (navigation device based on Windows CE 5.0) -
unfortunately device is not browseable, so couldn't test anything
more on it
Test 1 - on bluedevil 1.1.1-0ubuntu1 - everything worked properly
Test 2 - after adding kubuntu-ppa/experimental repository, update, apt-get
install bluedevil, stop bluedevil service in system settings, kill rest of
bluedevil processes, restart kdm, start bluedevil
(tested on both already setup configuration from bluedevil 1.1.1-0ubuntu1
and new configuration, too) - no problems found
Test 3 - after reboot and boot from cd again, upgrade to bluedevil
1.2.0~rc2-0ubuntu1 and then start bluedevil for the first time
On test 2 and 3 mobile broadband connection via DUN was tested, too -
everything went flawlessly including setup in Network Manager applet, in
just few clicks (even my mobile ISP was listed and configured
Just a minor problem with DUN on not configured devices - when I click
on found bluetooth device in Dolphin I see: 'Browse files', 'Dial Up
Network', 'Send file'. Both 'Browse files' and 'Send file' work properly
but looks like 'Dial Up Network' service type is not set for that link (I
get 'Open with...' dialog).
And one more thing - when I have rejected (in phone) file sent from PC to
phone, I had still in notification are 'Sending...' message which I had to
stop. Unfortunately I didn't test that on 1.1.1 before.
Besides just those two minor issues everything works great!
I'd like to see BlueDevil 1.2.0 in final Kubuntu 11.10.
Really good job!
