KDE Kio slave


I'm trying to get my bluetooth dongle working and am almost there. I can receive files from the other pc but I'm still working on one thing I can't solve.

Whenever I want to open bluetooth:/ or sdp://device/ I get an error that the url is not correct. Browsing the kdebluetooth site I have the idea that this has to do with somw kio slave. I have about everything in apt related to kio installed but to no reveil.
Any clue on what to install to get this working in KDE?

Regards

IIRC...
kio slave is a switch given to one of the other binaries included with kde. e.g. kde -kio_slave..etc
I don't know which one it is as I don't have kde installed anywhere.
Run:
ps aux | grep kio

I'm having this 'malformed url' problem too, bluetooth still works in that I can push files from my phone and they are received but when I try 'bluetooth:/' or 'sdp:/' I get a malformed url message.

I have purged and re-installed all relevant bluetooth / affix files and Konqueror but it's still doing the same thing - does anyone have any tips as to where I should be looking for a clue as to what has gone wrong?

Cheers

Oh yeah I should probably add that this is on Sid with a Broadcom USB Bluetooth dongle.

Powadha, did you by any chance try to use one of the debianised 'automatix' scripts that are knocking about? It's the only thing I can think of that might have done it.

It all still works properly under Etch on my laptop.

Haven't tried those. I have seen a post in the mailarchives on kdebluetooth stating the same problem (recent mail). No replies were made though...

Have you had any luck with this? It is still not working for me even through the recent upgrade to KDE 3.5.2

If anyone could point me towards what I need to to to even just find out what is wrong I'd be eternally grateful it's a pain in the proverb to send all my photos from my phone rather than just browsing to them and copying them in.

Cheers

Not a solution as yet but a step in the right direction: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=359153

Glad I'm not the only one and it appears it might not be just a debian problem: http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=123607

Yeah I saw that go up yesterday - Roughly how long does it take for the package to float around all the servers etc? I can still only find the 1-7 version (yes I'm impatient!)
