I had the same problem. Reason is because you need to start bluetooth in services once it is started it will then search for your bluetooth devices. mine wasn't set to start automatically or if it was originally i had stopped it from starting automatically on boot because i don't need it running all of the time.

I'm currently experienceing the same problems. If I login as root and do chkconfig bluetooth on it seems to switch it on, it appears in the list as on for all runlevels from 3 onwards but it still sticks when scanning for devices. The status bar appears but never moves and the words scanning for devices appear at the bottom of the bluetooth manager window but other than that nothing happens. Is there something I'm dong wrong. chkconfig bluetooth start doesn't appear to do anything for me, it just brings up a list of the syntax for the chkconfig command.

edit- Just noticed before I left for work, my bluetooth dongle doesn't seem to appear in the hardware list in gnome. Is this likely to be part of the problem. My devices is listed on bluez.org as being compatible (it's an MSI Btoes dongle) and I've checked to make sure all the bluez packages are installed. I'm sure I must be doing somethign stupid wrong but I can't work out what. If I can get bluetooth working then I'll have everything I used on Window$ working bar my scanner which is unsupported so will be replaced anyway and then I can ditch it for all but games.

it's
chkconfig <servicename> on
service <servicename> start

chkconfig has on, off and a few other options. It does not have start and stop.

service has start, stop, restart and a few other options depending on the service.

The service name for bluetooth is usually bluetooth


In Redhat chkconfig sets up the boot scripts to start or stop the service on runlevel changes. The service is not started or stopped by running chkconfig like suse does. You need to start or stop the service using the service command if you want it to start or stop without rebooting or changing runlevels.

You could also start a service on almost any distro that uses scripts by running the script.


/etc/init.d/bluetooth start

Must try harder, there was a dunce hat Smiley I would be using it about now.

Thanks by the way, I'll try this when I get home.
