Bug Description

Hi and first let me say thank you for the great work :)
So far all has been fine except for two issues, the most annoying one being that when my controller is connected via bluetooth it causes dolphin to play up.... basically when I right click (happens mostly with archives) a file in dolphin, the file manager crashes and becomes completely unresponsive. so long as the controller has not been connected at all since the last boot, dolphin file manager works flawlessly.
The seccond issue (very minor) is that I have to connect the controller through the terminal using sixad --stop then sixad --start. This is not so much of a problem for me tho since it is easy and quick to do.

I am using kubuntu 11.10 and qtsixa 1.5.1.

sorry I cant provide qt/pyqt version or log. I am very very new to linux and am not sure how to find them.....
hope this helps :)

I know about this, but I wasn't able to fix it in time. The problem is the sixad-dbus-blocker, which forcely blocks normal bluetooth from starting.

You can remove/uninstall 'bluedevil' (KDE bluetooth stuff) and everything will work again as expected.

Changed in qtsixa:
