Bluez5, bluetooth not recognized by gnome-bluetooth

I did a fresh install and installed the new bluez package (version 5). The service starts normally, but the gnome-bluetooth does not recognize bluetooth. You need some more package now? For example, bluez-libs and bluez-utils that are the same version. In version 4 I have never installed these packages.

Thanks,

Re: Bluez5, bluetooth not recognized by gnome-bluetooth

Does bluez4 work? I'm pretty sure the current release of gnome-bluetooth hasn't been ported to bluez5 yet (https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-bluetooth/log/).

Re: Bluez5, bluetooth not recognized by gnome-bluetooth

Yes, with version 4 bluez gnome worked perfectly. I will remove the bluez and return to bluez4. This update should not be active without being fully functional.

Re: Bluez5, bluetooth not recognized by gnome-bluetooth

This appears to be a packaging bug in gnome-bluetooth it should be depending on 'bluez4', I'll sort it out.

Re: Bluez5, bluetooth not recognized by gnome-bluetooth

Just wanted to hop in and say that the latest updates, including gnome-bluetooth now depending on bluez4, broke the Gnome3 BT support, at least on my Laptop with a Dell Bluetooth chipset. It worked fine a few days ago.

bluetoothd starts fine, but Gnome doesn't recognize it.

I have the same problem with my dell studio 1557.
Now my configuration is:
gnome-bluetooth 3.8.1-2
bluez4
obexd-client
and other packages about obex...

with this cofiguration, gnome-bluetooth does not recognize bluetooth device, but the bluetooth service in systemd starts and work fine.
this is systemctl status bluetooth:

bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service

I don't know why this happens.

Have either of you thought to maybe make a bug report?

With bluez5 is the same.

Re: Bluez5, bluetooth not recognized by gnome-bluetooth

The bug report already exists, but there is no solution yet. What I do not understand is what changed between v4 bluez that existed a few days ago and bluez4 which is the new package. What I did was enter the repository Konnichi and pick the version before these modifications bluez and gnome-bluetooth and reinstall on my computer.

Re: Bluez5, bluetooth not recognized by gnome-bluetooth

It seems that the new updates they turn off the bluetooth device during start.
So if you have bluez4 you need to install bluez-utils and restart.
If the bluetooth doesn't turn on, you need:

hciconfig --all

and read the label for your bluetooth device, then do:

hciconfig "label of your device" up

the default label is 'hci0'
so, the code can be this:

hciconfig hci0 up

Re: Bluez5, bluetooth not recognized by gnome-bluetooth

So, the solution proposed by Angelsoul doesn't work for me. Does anyone have another solution? It has been a while since the last time I could use any bluetooth device in my computer due to this problem.

Re: Bluez5, bluetooth not recognized by gnome-bluetooth

This problem needs to be solved now because bluez4 is no longer supported by gnome 3.10!

Re: Bluez5, bluetooth not recognized by gnome-bluetooth

Did someone got this working ? I can connect my bluetooth device through command line (speakers zii sound) but then I can't see it in gnome sound settings so I can't select it as a sound device and can't use my speakers.

I have the device defined in /etc/asound.conf and I can see it with aplay -L but if I try to play a sound with asound:
ALSA lib dlmisc.c:252:(snd1_dlobj_cache_get) Cannot open shared library /usr/lib/alsa-lib/libasound_module_pcm_bluetooth.so

Not sure what I should do to see this device in my gnome sound settings again.

Thanks

Re: Bluez5, bluetooth not recognized by gnome-bluetooth

@ttux: What else did you do? My bluetooth seems to be absolutely dead in Archlinux still.
