PC-BSD 9.1 will include a new GUI for managing bluetooth devices.

[edit] Testing via v9.0

If you would like to assist in testing this GUI, you can compile and install the code on your PC-BSD 9.0 system as follows:

First, check Control Panel → System Manager → System Packages → Development to make sure that these two development packages are installed:

  • Development-VCS
  • Development-Qt

As superuser, download the source and compile the Bluetooth Manager and Tray applications:

svn co svn://svn.pcbsd.org/pcbsd/current/src-qt4/
cd src-qt4/libpcbsd
qmake-qt4 *.pro
make && make install
cd ../pc-bluetoothmanager
qmake-qt4 *.pro
make && make install
cd ../pc-bluetoothtray
qmake-qt4 *.pro
make && make install

When finished, leave the superuser account and start the Bluetooth Manager:

pc-su pc-bluetoothmanager

(will prompt for superuser password)

Alternately, place the Bluetooth Manager in the system tray:

Pseudo-xterm-left.png Xterm Pseudo-xterm-right.png

pc-su pc-bluetoothtray

(will prompt for superuser password)

NOTE: The Bluetooth Tray currently activates on right-click, but nothing activates on left-click as of yet.

If you try it out, let us know if you encounter any errors or need additional functionality. Feedback can be sent to the testing mailing list[1]. The table below will assist those seeking to discover if their device will work.
