I tried running Master_wrong's list of commands in an LXTerminal. Basically, my first attempt on the command line with copy-and-paste into the terminal had me in bash, so I started a sub-sh so I had the correct shell type. Then copy-and-pasted into that. The main issue then was that it appears that hciconfig was in in /usr/sbin rather than /usr/local/sbin. So eventually got through it all with what appears to be success, except that there appears to be no blueman-applet. I scanned the entire system for blueman-applet, and it doesn't exist anywhere. Soooo... Sad Also, I didn't have a bluetooth dongle in the USB port for my first couple of attempts, but by the last attempt it had occurred to me that might make a difference, so I plugged one in. Anyways, no blueman-applet and no bluetooth-looking icon anywhere on the screen. The readout is in the box.

hello. When i had to do this, instead of typing the whole rute /usr/sbin/hciconfig. I just type hcic then tab to see if it sees the command, and then i get hciconfig. This is how i always do it, the same with hcitool. Also, when i did it i didn't hvae any blueman-applet but blueman-manager. Try and check if you have that command

No blueman-manager, no blueman anything after searching the system with the Ptfind (sic?) utility. What is missing? I added all the pets on the list...

@chursch

I really dont understand why you cant run blueman when the difference is that you are using lxterm and alwaysalone is using roxterm ?

can you try using the roxterm ?

EDIT :
Failed to start message bus: The pid file "/var/run/dbus/dbus.pid" exists, if the message bus is not running, remove this file

you can rename or delete this files and try again

I tried roxterm for the list of command, including blueman-applet/manager. Didn't really expect it to work, and it didn't. Sad So why don't I have a blueman guy? I'm sure I loaded the pet...
