Include bluedevil in 11.4

Feature state



Bluetooth has always been a weak link in KDE. Bluedevil has been announced, and should be tested, and included in 11.4. We can have native KDE bluetooth that works similar to gnome bluetooth, or blueman. My limited testing includes 2 phones, keyboard/mouse, and headphones. None of these devices would connect with kdebluetooth. All of them setup and connected flawlessly with bluedevil KCM module. The only problem so far is not being able to see files in dolphin when trying to browse phone files.

Great!, but maybe we should be for 11.3

Package is in openSUSE Build Service, repository KDE:Playground. KDE team, should it go to factory?

I believe we should include libbluedevil and bluedevil in the openSUSE 11.4 release since kbluetooth has been deprecated.

Hi Folks,

I agree, we should have bluedevil and libbluedevil in 11.4. I've been testing them with my devices and they work better and with a lot less fuss than KDE bluetooth.

They also seem to be at mature version numbers, this is what I have:

bluedevil 1.0-1.1
libbluedevil 1.8-1.1

How about blue-devil 1.02?
"The second minor version of BlueDevil (KDE’s Bluetooth support) has been released and it is the most important release since 1.0 because it adds support for some basic bluetooth feature we have been missing since 1.0, regarding Device Pairing."

The full changelog is:
* Added support for Bluetooth 2.1 (SSP pairing)
* Do not pair devices that don’t need it
* Better automatic mode (Updated PIN database)
* Randomized the default PIN
* Random PIN of 6 characters, shrink if needed (depending on device)
* Improved the wizard flow for a lot of devices
* Do not show actions in systray when offline
* Handle possible obex-data-server crashes (This is the cause for a looooooot of troubles receiving files.)
* Fixed big file operations in kio_obexftp
* The i18n should be fixed once for all (stable branch created)
