Bluetooth service is not active

  • Anonymous - 2009-05-09

    Hi! I would love to start using what seems to be a great and useful program

    However, there are some rather pressing issues that I cannot seem to fix:
    1. Whenever I start up ganyremote, I get the following message: "Bluetooth service is not active" even though my mobile phone and computer are paired
    2. When I open up Device Browser, I cannot see my mobile phone
    3. When I press Scan for New Devices in the device browser, my entire system hangs, and I have to force a manual restart

    Is there any reason why this does not work? I have no problems otherwise using bluetooth between my computer and my Nokia. I am using the lastest Ubuntu, and I have a usb Bluetooth device plugged in.

    Try to run ganyremote as root. This should fix the hang.

    The problem seems to have gone away all by itself! I have been using AnyRemote successfully for a very long time now!
