I've gotten reports that bluetooth isn't quite working as expected. I have a spare laptop with Bluetooth support; I'll see if I can use it at all or if we need some additional packages.
Bluetooth devices have mixed results. I was able to successfully pair a an apple bluetooth keyboard and a logitech travel mouse.
I was unsuccessful when trying to pair an audio headset (mpow branded). I did install the puleaudio-module-bluetooth package.

Additionally the panel application (icon) does not load.
I used the bluedevil-wizard to pair my devices from the CLI. A menu item will need to be created for ease of use. After devices are paired a management interface (module?) will also be needed (I haven't found it yet). Plasma has a settings module for this.
pulseaudio-module-bluetooth requires a restart of pulseaudio after installing. After a computer restart I am now able to connect all 3 of my devices. Currently I have no way to change my headset to a A2DP device, still investigating that.
So we need to
- Add pulseaudio-module-bluetooth to the seeds (this is a bluedevil Suggests. D15
- Replace NoDisplay=true with OnlyShowIn=LXQt in /usr/share/applications/org.kde.bluedevilwizard.desktop. (proposal)
- For Category, add System. (proposal)
- Figure out the management interface
- Figure out how to turn the Plasmoid into a system tray item
Replace NoDisplay=true with OnlyShowIn=LXQt in /usr/share/applications/org.kde.bluedevilwizard.desktop.
I disagree on the latter point. We at least need Plasma in there; otherwise, why is it necessary?
KDE apparently set it to never show. They assume no one wants to see it. Which makes sense because they have a Plasmoid. But we DO want to want to see it in our menus… until we can figure out a system tray item of our own.
Something further will be needed unless you can at the very least remove devices and change the profile of the devices using the systray app. The wizard only allows for pairing devices ( a great first step) and the sendfile only allows for sending files to connected devices.
We've done the little things at this point. The big change is needing something to replicate the behavior of the bluedevil Plasmoid, but that will most likely require creating something from scratch.
