unfortunately, that isn't going to work, for the opposite reason: slackware current has now moved on to python 3.9 (rc2 is 3.8)
which i guess(since this report is short on detail), is what has happened here..
no easy fix, for the moment, short of finding an archived version of blueman built against python 3.8 ... or building blueman from source..

Managed to lay my hand on Blueman-1.13.1 compiled with Python-3.8 from two sources. An rpm package and one from Ignis Porteus by Evergreen.

Blueman- rpm threw some errors failing to get module _blueman.

Evergreen's Blueman got the Bluetooth icon in the panel when daemon was running. But "Turn blutooth on" command was there in the menu on right click. When turned on , the icon lights up and vanishes.

Unusable still. What is going on?

@raja
In Ignis I did work Bluetooth making

Code: Select all

su -> root password
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth
In this Porteus 5.0rc2 released is included almost everything that you need to have your Bluetooth working withouth change anything but to handle it you will need the correct blueman.. I could suggest you to use everything from Slackware current its safer than use rpm or deb stuff because sometime Slackware Libs and their files are in different places and in additions I want to mention some files required to be for SysV and not systemd.

Anyway the extra modules to support your are here below they are the same I am using right now.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/projec ... bluetooth/

In my case adding kernel firmware solved my laptop issue with Bluetooth driver
https://sourceforge.net/projects/projec ... -firmware/

remember to restart your pc after that you should have Bluetooth daemon running and your icon to handle your Bluetooth connections, if its possible do it with a fresh installation if something still not working. this should fix your issue

Thanks, evergreen..your Ignis Porteus is the only, offering where my Laptop could share files with my phone, through Bluetooth.

Can't use USB-C in the phone as the Taiwanese chip has no drivers for Linux.

Thanks for your current modules. I used your Blueman and firmware files in Ignis as said above without success. I shall try with with your current files.

Someone presented a Bluetooth speaker, and would like to hear some music , atleast for testing.

Thanks again.

I used evergrren's Blueman module along with Atheros firmware Debian package for wireless cards from qualcom.

The difference was a NVM firmware instead of rampatch firmware(nvm_usb_00000302.bin VS rampatch_usb_00000302.bin).

The deb package covers all firmwares for Atheros. Please note.
