Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: bluez-gnome

I can't search for bluetooth devices on Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex 8.10.

I try to search for bluetooth devices using the "bluetooth manager for
gnome" (version 1.8) but there is no way to start the searching

My intuition told me to click with right-button-mouse over the bluetooth
icon and select to configure a new device. The "device bluetooth manager
wizzard" came up. I clicked on next. The window asked me to select the
device I want to configure but any device appeared on the list
(obviously, there weren't any devices configured yet) But tthere is no
way to search for new devices.

I think that this issue depends on the "bluez-gnome" package. The
version I have is 1.8-0ubuntu1. And I have the package "bluez" version

Also I tried to search my cell phone with "hcitool scan" from the
terminal. It search but doesn't find my phone.

And everything was working fine with my Ubuntu 8.04.

(I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 and I made a new installation to install it, I
mean I didn't upgrade the system from Ubuntu 8.04)

(Sorry for my bad English)
