Bluetooth doesn't work after last update.

Just like in subject, after updating bluez my bluetooth stoped working. I tried to restart daemon, but nothing helps. It looks like it was off all the time.

Re: Bluetooth doesn't work after last update.

To solve this you should install bluez-gnome from testing. It works like a charm, and even integrates with policykit.

Re: Bluetooth doesn't work after last update.

Did you guys check your .pacsave config files? I noticed the bluetooth library updates dumped all the old configs to .pacsave files so of course nothing would work over here either...

Re: Bluetooth doesn't work after last update.

primarily this one was replaced, the old one renamed to bluetooth.pacsave

/etc/conf.d/bluetooth


this is a signature

This doesn't work for me. Well now other options are visible, but I can't connect to any device, or send files.

Re: Bluetooth doesn't work after last update.

Same problem here. During update I noticed some remarks

[2009-02-13 21:44] warning: /etc/conf.d/bluetooth saved as /etc/conf.d/bluetooth.pacsave
[2009-02-13 21:44] warning: /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf saved as /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf.pacsave

[2009-02-13 21:44] removed bluez-libs (3.32-1)
[2009-02-13 21:44] installed bluez (4.29-1)

So it seems 2 packages were replaced by one. It became obvious that some symlinks or dependencies will be broken by this roll It's quite annoying in Linux (general) that quite often there're some very strange and unintelligible package changes which break something, that was working flawlessly before...
Here's what I get when trying to launch Bluetooth Monitor from console

zbyszek ~ $  kbluemon
kbluemon: error while loading shared libraries: libbluetooth.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

How to fix this?

EDIT

Seems new bluez version brougth some new content of which my system is not fully aware

zbyszek ~ $  pacman -Ql bluez
(...)
bluez /usr/lib/libbluetooth.la
bluez /usr/lib/libbluetooth.so
bluez /usr/lib/libbluetooth.so.3
bluez /usr/lib/libbluetooth.so.3.1.2
(...)

As you can see it contains libbluetooth.so.3, and KBluemon seeks libbluetooth.so.2...

Re: Bluetooth doesn't work after last update.

what about this:

Release of bluez-4.30
12th February 2009, 10:30 pm by Marcel Holtmann

This previous release was not one of our best ones. At the UnPlugFest we focused so much on Simple Pairing support, that we actually broke the Legacy Pairing with Bluetooth 2.0 and earlier devices. This has been fixed now. In addition one show-stopper for Bluetooth 2.1 qualification has also been fixed.

Re: Bluetooth doesn't work after last update.

I too failed using bluez-gnome, however I managed to connect to my mobile-phone using "rfcomm connect X".

I had to start a passkey-agent before executing that command - but this depends on whether or not the devices already know each other (stored in /var/lib/bluetooth).

The passkey agent i used is the python "sample-agent" in one of the bluez4 source packages which can be obtained from www.bluez.org.

After hours of fiddling around with dbus and bluez-gnome I finally got my laptop->mobile phone connection working again.

Re: Bluetooth doesn't work after last update.

I also got the problem after bluez upgrade.
I use -since this morning-  bluez-gnome-1.8-4 from extra. Now, I'm able to use my bluetooth mouse, but there is a need for confirmation that "I trust the mouse", every time I start the pc.

I've noticed some changes in /etc/rc.d/bluetooth. The DAEMON_NAME is now "bluetoothd" instead of "hcid" and the DAEMON_CONFIG file: /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf seems that isn't usable anymore.
There are 2 new files in /etc/bluetooth: main.conf & input.conf

Re: Bluetooth doesn't work after last update.

what a pity !

I have the same problem here too... I also noticed you can't have two devices connect simultaneously like you could before sad.

Same behaviour shows with bluez 4.30, btw.

Re: Bluetooth doesn't work after last update.

Do anyone still have old BlueZ packages on his/her system? If so, please share them.

Some outdated mirrors as seen on http://users.archlinux.de/~gerbra/mirrorcheck.html still have the old packages.

Like the belnet one:

Re: Bluetooth doesn't work after last update.

I've got these two packages, which enabled me to restore proper bluetooth mouse function:

bluez-libs-3.32-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.gz
bluez-utils-3.32-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.gz

These are the two packages that were replaced on 12 Feb 2009 with the new bluez-4.29 package.

If your revert to the bluez-libs and bluez-utils packages from the bluez-4.29 package, you may encounter a message regarding gnokii and pilot-link. Bluez-4.29 required an upgrade of these packages. To be safe, I reverted these two packages to the immediately preceding versions.

I have these packages as well, for Arch64.

If someone can provide a location where I can upload these files, I'll gladly do so. I could also e-mail the bluez* packages, as they're not very large -- though if I get 20,000 requests, I might not be able to follow through big_smile.

I'm much happier having proper bluetooth mouse function back. I don't usually like to revert packages, but in this case, it was a good move, I think.

Re: Bluetooth doesn't work after last update.

Can anyone that hasn't updated his ABS tree yet post the PKGBUILDs for bluez-libs and bluez-utils? I'd like to upgrade to the latest 3.36 version.

Much appreciated smile.
