Blueman cannot start properly


Hi everybody,

I have a problem with BT again, I installed blueman from SlackBuild at http://connie.slackware.com/~rworkman/blueman/, but when I start it (from Setting > Bluetooth Manager), it was running with a minimized window at the taskbar for a while and not appear any window or icon on the system tray.

I track its process, there's still it running background
Code:
tridc@latix:~$ ps aux | grep blueman
tridc     5394  0.0  0.4  26052 15708 ?        S    15:54   0:00 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/blueman-manager
tridc    16171  0.0  0.0   2204   628 pts/0    R+   16:41   0:00 grep blueman
May someone have this problem? Please hints me? Thanks alot!

i actually have the same problem. some background info:
slackware64 13.0 with bluez 4.61, bluez-hcidump, bluez-firmware, obexftp, openobex, wxgtk.
i installed blueman from rworkman's packages.
if i try to start it without bluez libs and utils, it says that bluez is not running and just stops.
if i install bluez libs and utils it starts but the process stalls. it appears in the taskbar for a short period but then it's gone and i have to stop the process from the task-manager.
when i try to launch from the console i get this error message:

Code:
on_bluez_name_owner_changed (/usr/bin/blueman-manager:104)

You should not install utils and libs for Bluez4.

Have you modified rc.bluetooth to start bluetoothd instead of hcid?

You can also start it manually:
/usr/sbin/bluetoothd

@uppman: I removed utils and libs before installing bluez4.

I also have error message like doomey when I run that command

    message, timeout)
dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)
As I see, the problem is on dbus but I dont know how to fix it.

Hope for help.

I am having a similar problem. Blueman is running but the try icon does not show.

Code:
Loading configuration plugins
Using gconf config backend
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/blueman-applet", line 364, in <module>
    BluemanApplet()
  File "/usr/bin/blueman-applet", line 297, in __init__
    check_single_instance("blueman-applet")
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/blueman/Functions.py", line 270, in check_single_instance
    pid = int(f.readline())
ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: ''
This is the error I receive when I run it in console. I have tried google-fu and came up with one site which did nothing but state the problem. I have even tried Ron's SlackBuild comes up with same result.

Any help would be appreciated as I haven't the foggiest idea what is going on here.

Hi uppman,

My pygobject version is 2.16, it's older than yours. Maybe that's problem.
Would you attach your pygobject and even obex-data-server-0.4.5 here?

Thanks.

The only difference I have is the obex data server. I am wondering why this is doing this.
