Issues with blueman


I'm getting the following output when I attempt to launch blueman on Slackware64 13.1:
Code:

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

I've been getting this error lately as well. It worked fine for a while when I first installed 13.1 64bit, but now this is all I get when I try to load the tray applet.

Do you remember if you uninstalled any packages or anything, made any changes to the config?

The only thing I did was reboot. I did the initial install, connected a device via bluetooth, disconnected it it and rebooted. Then no worky.

I'm not getting any notifications of failure, just nasty output in the terminal when I attempt to run it.

@micemicerabies: Did you make /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth executable and start it? It looks like you don't have bluetooth services started.

manwichmakesameal: I tried starting rc.bluetooth, that did not start it, I also $hciconfig hci0 up, then tried $sh rc.bluetooth restart, nothing has changed. I can use hcitool to scan for BT so I know the chip is working.
