Use Blueman as the Default Bluetooth Manager.


Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 12
  • Last updated: 29-JUN-2009
  • Percentage of completion: 1% (All known packages have been built for Fedora 10 and Fedora 11 in updates-testing, and are already in Rawhide). See bugzilla.).

Detailed Description

Change the default Bluetooth Manager to Blueman, a simple and intuitive Bluetooth manager.

Benefit to Fedora

Blueman integrates with NetworkManager, making Bluetooth Dialup connections available to NetworkManager. It's easy-to-use gui allows it to pair up with headsets easily and send/receive files via OBEX and set up as a modem.


Requires testing all features with different bluetooth devices.

Test Plan

* Connect to 3G/EDGE/GPRS via dial-up
* Connect to or create bluetooth networks
* Connect to input devices
* Connect to audio devices
* Send/Receive/Browse files via OBEX
* Pairing

User Experience

Contingency Plan

We stay with the old bluetooth manager widget.
