blueman dbus exception after login

Post by gapan » 6. Aug 2018, 21:20

With the latest blueman package update (currently at blueman-2.0.6-x86_64-1_slack14.2) by Slackware, after logging in, a popup with an Exception caused by DBus is appearing.

If you want to fix this now, you can create a file /etc/polkit-1/rules.d/10-blueman.rules and put these in it:

Code: Select all

polkit.addRule(function(action, subject) {
    if (( == "" || == "org.blueman.dhcp.client" || == "org.blueman.rfkill.setstate" || == "org.blueman.pppd.pppconnect") &&
        subject.isInGroup("netdev")) {
        return polkit.Result.YES;
(I got that from an LQ post)

You can change the "netdev" group in that to any other you want, one that your users are a member of.

Although it seems that PV already knows about this problem and an updated package that fixes it will probably appear sometime during the next few days.
