Improve Bluetooth Applet → Preferences for /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf

Feature state

Description

Corrently is rather complex for a newbee to configue for instance a gps receiver that is connected via bluetooth.

Configure /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf

rfcomm bind rfcomm0

start gpsd /dev/rfcomm0

It would be helpful is bluetooth and bluetooth devices could be configured via YaST.

There are 2 subjects here, which should not be put together
1. bluetooth configuration
2. gpsd configuration

I strongly disagree to put the Bluetooth configuration into the YaST. At present the Bluetooth configuration is done via Bluetooth Applet. To create another point of configuration will increase the complexity and increase the possibility of an error. The simplicity should be the main goal nowadays to keep the system maintainable.

If rfcomm GUI is required the “Bluetooth Applet → Preferences” is the right place.

I agree.

I agree.

The best place to enable is the Bluetooth applet.

If everyone agree, let us modify a title.
