Bug Description

Binary package hint: bluez-gnome

The buttons on the GUI have no label, and the meaning of the icons is not really understandable, especially the star and the plug I'm attaching a screenshot).
I suggest adding the label on each button

There should at least be tooltips added for the buttons.

To this day I have no idea what the little star means...

I was about to report this for Ubuntu 9.04 alpha 5, and I find it was a problem in 8.10? I'd consider it a design/usability issue that is simple to fix. Please add labels and/or hover hints!

could someone please explain what the little star and the key mean?

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. However, I am closing it because the bug has been fixed in the latest development version of Ubuntu - Karmic Koala. It won't be fixed in previous versions of Ubuntu because the package doesn't fit the requirements for backporting. See for more information.
