installing blueman

Post#1 by maspai » 30 Oct 2012, 07:21

i already have blueman module and can activate it with no problem.
however, running blueman-applet will say

Code: Select all

ImportError: No module named pynotify
, and although i then got notify-python package from slackware repo and activated it, same error still appears.
while running blueman-manager say

Code: Select all

ImportError: No module named gtk
, although i have gtk+3-3xx and gtk+-1.2xx modules activated.
any help appreciated. thanks.

this message comes from python so you must be short of pygtk package.

btw: if next one will be cairo then please install pycairo, etc..
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

i made it :). i had no much time to fix, so once i had a spare time, i installed fresh porteus and installed the packages. running blueman-applet said that it needed dbus, so i installed python-dbus, and blueman worked. it could detect my mobile well.
but i need to be able to browse files on my phone storage card. i can't because in local services > transfer everything is disabled. i tried installing obex (obexfs, openobex), didn't work :(.

EDIT: no idea, but browsing feature works, just by pressing browse button in bluetooth devices window, though the transfer tab still disabled. i'm not going to mind much about it. btw, i needed to enable the transfer tab for setting default file manager to use. well, not needed because it just works. thanks fanthom. how to edit the post title to tag it as solved?
