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