@Kulle
Please state which Porteus edition you are running. Someone who has bluetooth working on your platform will give you a hand...

Regards!

Edit: Most probably your bluetooth daemon is not running. To use it you will need a bluetooth dongle or similar device.
If your system uses initd try as root in a console "/etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth restart".
You should get as response "Starting Bluetooth services: bluetoothd hciconfig sdptool hciattach" or similar B)

Good luck!

Check if your rc.bluetooth is executable. I guess it is not.
If so do as root a chmod x to /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth.
Good luck!

xfce porteus 4.0 rc4, if you prefer I might migrate to final. It is just that I did not had the time.

Thanks.

ok, i'm not sure the slackware 14.2 package for blueman that usm pulls will work on 4.0 (maybe it does)
at the very least it needs dbus-python..
or here: Blueman for Porteus 4.0 xfce is a module built from current packages (with python3)

I will try that. Maybe as you write dbus is missing. If not I willl try the module you propose or simply both.
Thanks so much.

should mention also: porteus 4.0 has a cheatcode: bluetooth that will start the the daemon at boot,
as well as a section in porteus settings centre that can also control it(turn on/off and have start at boot)
