Any way to disable blueman?


The blueman applet is killing my processor from time to time. The crazy part is that I do not have blue tooth installed in this system... It appears to be a bug upstream and looks like it has been reported but in the mean time is there a way to disable blueman?

Thank You!

Or, you can disable blueman when the DE starts. In Xfce go to Settings -> Session and Startup -> Application Autostart and disable the Blueman Applet there.

In KDE it would be System Settings -> Startup and Shutdown -> Autostart.

If you don't have bluetooth on the machine, then you might also want to double-check that you don't have /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth set to execute (assuming you have other bluetooth related packages installed). As root, do:

chmod -x /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth
