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

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, 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:

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

error

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:

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

error

pc-su pc-bluetoothmanager

Alternately, place the Bluetooth Manager in the system tray:

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

error

pc-su pc-bluetoothtray

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. The table below will assist those seeking to discover if their device will work.
