What does
Code:
ps -ef | grep blue
return? (The D-Bus setup failed: Name already in use message made me wonder if you have a copy of bluetoothd running that you didn't know about.)

If bluetoothd is running and you are running XFCE, then go to Settings -> Bluetooth Adapter and see if your adapter shows up. If it does, then we'll go to the next bit.

By the way before you upgrade to the kernel 4.4.6 was your bluetooth running good?

yes before that upgrade, yes all running well, only has other problem that is when i connected a headset or any speaker the bluethoot or any device bluetooth works but wifi is terribly SLOW! i dont know why, beacuse using other SO or any distros, dont cause me that problem , but i want to be a slacker jaja so i need fix it.


PD: Now when i start blueman-manager gui drop's me this

Connection to BlueZ failed
Bluez daemon is not running, blueman-manager cannot continue.
This probably means that there were no Bluetooth adapters detected or Bluetooth daemon was not started.

Hmm. Your bluetooth daemon isn't running.

Try uninstalling the bluez package; pay attention to any messages telling you that unique directories still have files. Remove those files. Then install bluez and try starting bluetoothd again. If bluetoothd comes up, bring up blueman-manager via the Settings menu.

Tell me what happens.

Good questions.

Stop bluetoothd via /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth stop

removepkg bluez
Check the output for the unique files message. There really shouldn't be any, so don't stress out if there isn't.
slackpkg update
slackpkg install bluez
/etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth start

Then run the grep command to see if bluetoothd stays running. Let us know what you see.

(slackpkg remove would also work to uninstall bluez)

I think that you should make a new thread about wifi speed. You should get different eyes looking at that one.

I'm glad that bluetooth is now working for you.
