Call for Testers: Bluetooth Manager

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 && 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.

    There is a problem on the compiling instructions,because the g++ uses the installed libpcbsd insted the svn version. I did this to compile:
    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
