** Description changed:
I did a clean 9.10 install. I have gnome-bluetooth 2.28.1-0ubuntu2 and my system is exhibiting the following behaviour
When I mouse over the icon (which is greyed out) it shows bluetooth disabled. When I right click the icon, I only have the choice to turn bluetooth off. When I open preferences I have the option to start bluetooth.
Nothing I try turns it on.
I reported a bug at gnome but was told "Ubuntu is shipping old versions of gnome-bluetooth, with non-upstream patches.
Take it up with them."
Steps to reproduce:
1. I did a clean install of Ubuntu 9.10.
2. Immediately I had an issue with bluetooth.
3. The BT icon is greyed out
4. When I mouse over the BT icon a pop up box indicates "Bluetooth disabled".
5. When I right click the icon
- Bluetooth: on - is greyed out
- Turn Bluetooth off - is black
- Preferences - is black
+ Bluetooth: on - is greyed out
+ Turn Bluetooth off - is black
+ Preferences - is black
6. Opening preferences
- Top left states Bluetooth is disabled
- There is a button "Turn bluetooth on"
+ Top left states Bluetooth is disabled
+ There is a button "Turn bluetooth on"
7. When "turn bluetooth on" button is clicked, the button greys out but does not perform the function.
8. The preferences box remains with the greyed out button until the x box is clicked. The whole box closes. /Bluetooth does not turn on.
9. Intermittently, the BT icon is black when the computer restarts, unfortunately pairing does not occur.
10. My system can find my phone, another computer in my house etc but my phone & the other computer cannot find my ubuntu system. Even though the system BT is set up to transmit all the time.
Step 5: when clicking the Bluetooth icon:
- - Bluetooth: Off - is greyed out
- - Turn On Bluetooth - is black and clickable
- - Preferences - is black and clickable
+ - Bluetooth: Off - is greyed out
+ - Turn On Bluetooth - is black and clickable
+ - Preferences - is black and clickable
Step 7: when clicking the "Turn Bluetooth On" button, Bluetooth should start and the button be replaced by the Bluetooth Preferences panel
Step 10: the Ubuntu system should be able to find and pair with other Bluetooth enabled devices
