Fedora 16, Fedora 15 Bluetooth in Gnome [Solved]

The problem in Fedora 16  Gnome was not showing the bluetooth devices and in fact it didn’t detect any. However, lsusb found them with no problems.

There is a bug #695588 at RedHat and it looked like systemctl may have not started it.

 You can correct these bugs very easly
#systemctl status bluetooth.service
 bluetooth.service - Bluetooth Manager
       Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service)
       Active: inactive (dead)
       CGroup: name=systemd:/system/bluetooth.service
Use these commands for fixing this
#systemctl enable bluetooth.service
 ln -s '/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service' '/etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.bluez.service'
 ln -s '/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service' '/etc/systemd/system/bluetooth.target.wants/bluetooth.service'


#systemctl start bluetooth.service

After running those three commands, gnome now shows all devices. Also turn on or off the visibility etc… By using the phone manager in gnome you can browse the files in the bluetooth device.

PS: Thanks for this information from Kevin’s World in this link Fedora 15 Bluetooth
