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

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, make sure that these two development packages are showing as installed in Control Panel ➜ System Manager ➜ System Packages ➜ Development:

  • 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
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:

pc-su pc-bluetoothtray (will prompt for superuser password)

Note that 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.
