- This description is related to Ubuntu 7.10:
- ----------------------------------------------------------
  Binary package hint: gnome-bluetooth
  There are many problems with this package that causes it not to work for
  me.  So I'll try to be thorough as I can be.
  1)  No icon is shown in the notification area.  Under Bluetooth
  Preferences there is an option to "Never display icon", "Only display
  icon when adapter present", or "Always display icon".  I set it to
  "always display icon" but there is still never an icon.  On my laptop,
  which has Fedora, I have it set to "Only display icon when adapter
  present" and it works.  Using the same adapter even.
  2)  When you try to pair FROM your device nothing happens.  You never
  get notice of it on the computer.  On my device (a Blackberry), I'm
  asked to enter a passphrase, but once I do that, nothing happens in
  Ubuntu.  After a couple of seconds my device reports a failure.
  3)  When you try to pair FROM Ubuntu, Bluetooth Preferences crashes.  I
  go to the Services tab, select "Input service", then click Add. then
  click Show all devices, select my device (Blackberry 8320), then press
  Connect.  My device prompts for a passphrase, which I enter.  It then
  causes Bluetooth Preferences (bluetooth-properties) to crash.  Here is
  what it says in the terminal:
  matthew at matthew-desktop:~$ bluetooth-properties
  process 3682: arguments to dbus_message_new_method_call() were incorrect, assertion "_dbus_check_is_valid_path (path)" failed in file dbus-message.c line 1074.
  This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.
  ** ERROR **: Out of memory
  Aborted (core dumped)
  Again, same set up, same phone, same bluetooth adapter, works flawlessly
  on my laptop with Fedora.  So the bug must either be caused by my
  desktop computer hardware, or by ubuntu itself.  Thanks.
