problem starting blueman bluetooth manager
I hope someone nice knows how to fix this..
I'm trying to connect a bluetooth mouse using blueman, v. 1.21
Problem seems to be bluetoothd not running at startup, so blueman refuses to start, only a dialog appears: "Bluez daemon is not running, blueman-manager cannot continue."
On my system, bluetoothd will run only as root (sudo), so my current workaround is simply to sudo bluetoothd manually, but id like to fix it so it starts by itself.
If i try to start bluetoothd as non-root it reports:
Bluetooth deamon 4.91 Unable to get on D-Bus
DAEMON=/usr/sbin/bluetoothd test -f /usr/sbin/bluetoothd || exit 0 # bluetoothd normally starts up by udev rules. it needs dbus to function, log_progress_msg "bluetoothd" pkill -TERM bluetoothd || true log_progress_msg "bluetoothd"
Further i have already tried with no luck:
1. Editing /etc/dbus-1/system.d/bluetooth.conf to include my user (essentially copying the part that was for root):
<policy user="myuser"> <allow own="org.bluez"/> <allow send_destination="org.bluez"/> <allow send_interface="org.bluez.Agent"/> </policy>
2. Editing /etc/pam.d/common-session and /etc/pam.d/gdm to include the line:
session optional pam_ck_connector.so
Btw, I'm confused as to which session manager I'm using, since i have both xfce4-session and gdm-session-worker running.
Anyways, hope someone is savvy enough to figure it out or bring some hints, otherwise i sincerely apologize for wasting your time! I'll sign off with uname -a:
