Bluetooth keyboard and mouse disabled by gdm

Bug #54051 reported by AJ Slater on 2006-07-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gdm (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

This in reference to bluez-utils bug #32415

Starting gdm causes my logitech diNovo bluetooth keyboard and mouse not to function.

Stopping gdm or stopping or restarting bluez-utils does not restore function. Only rebooting (!) does.

Many others with bluetooth peripherals report the same thing. See #32415.

# update-rc.d -f bluez-utils remove

Thanks for your bug report. I doubt that it's a gdm bug. Does the bluetooth keyboard work in X at all?

This is more properly addressed by bluez-utils bug #32415

The problem is likely a dbus interaction with gdm/x and it is probably the bluez package's fault.

The bluetooth keyboard does not work in bluetooth mode in X at all.
If bluez is not started, it pretends to be a ps/2 or usb board, X is none the wiser and it works.

If anyone else has this problem see workarounds in bug #32415

This bug should probable be closed against gdm.
