Hi Mathieu,

In my latest distro, Ubuntu 13.10, there is a field for setting the Bluetooth "Friendly Name" in the blueman-adapters panel. I think it works, at least on the system I'm using now. (However, this isn't a fresh installation, and I may have performed some work-around last year.)

But this was very problematic even last year. Something like: you could set the friendly name in one place, but somehow it didn't *take*, so that other devices would still see it as "ubuntu0".

As always, it's immaterial to the user whose fault it is--and enough glitches like this drive users to the competition.

Thanks for your time!
