blueman requires pulseaudio in 64 current
 
The applet doesn't start

=========
OSError: libpulse.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
=========

Ditto. Same problem here.

Pulseaudio can be downloaded and built from http://www.SlackBuilds.org if you need it.

You may also need to rebuild your Blueman package to disable the Pulseaudio Plugin.

Just go to http://slackware.mirrors.tds.net/pub...e/xap/blueman/ download the build pack, rebuild Blueman, and reinstall it to see if it still requires it. Pulse is supposed to be completely optional as a package.

I'm not even running KDE, at the moment. Blueman just stopped working after installing yesterday's updates and upgrades. Either one of the updates or upgrades broke it or maybe Blueman needs to be updated?

Forget that post of me. Was a complete mistake.

(I'm getting the same error btw.)

cwizardone 06-27-2012 01:13 AM

Fixed. Well, sort of... :)

xap/blueman-r708-x86_64-2.txz: Reverted.
Switched back to r708, since the newer repo pull is requiring PulseAudio.
We'll consider what to do about this long term sometime down the road.
Thank you, Mr. Volkerding.

Why a bluetooth applet /requires/ pulseaudio is beyond me.

ReaperX7 06-27-2012 03:54 PM

It's probably because the source was geared towards Ubuntu which uses PulseAudio by default as it's main sound server. It can probably be patched out, but knowing what to do to patch it out will take some time.

Oh, I understand that - I just think it's unfortunate that upstream has decided to make it a required dependency rather than a compile time option.

It is, and I recommend submitting an issue about this in their bug tracker.

The blueman applet problem re-surfaced after this last batch of updates.
