@Arc not sure what your problem is: every version I have built since September provides

Are you using pacman -Sy bluez-git and answering 'yes' to replace? Or, are you simply trying to remove bluez-libs on its own?

Arc commented on 2021-12-13 21:58 (UTC)

Prior comments suggest that the issue breaking a dependency for pipeware was resolved on 05.30.2021. But when attempting to install bluez-git I get an error stating that removing bluez-libs breaks the dependency required by pipewire.

lkrms commented on 2021-08-04 15:00 (UTC)

Just a heads up that I wasn't able to build this package in a chroot without adding systemd to makedepends. I found that configure failed while checking for libudev, leaving this in its log file:

Package libudev was not found in the pkg-config search path.                   
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libudev.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable

And reporting this in the output:

configure: error: libudev >= 172 is required

You would think systemd itself would be pulled in by another dependency, but apparently it's not.

Thanks for maintaining this :)

thanks @bidulock

@moiiom I did something similar. Thanks for the patch!

moiiom commented on 2021-07-27 09:48 (UTC)

hi @bidulock could you add this patch from the bluez PKGBUILD, it adds tools in the bin folder or maybe create a package_bluez-utils-git function.

I was trying everything, up to and including switching to pipewire, but my bluetooth headphones finally worked after installing this. Thanks!

bidulock commented on 2021-05-30 02:02 (UTC)

@eh5 done.

eh5 commented on 2021-05-28 03:25 (UTC)

Hi @bidulock, could you apply this patch? Unlike pulseaudio-bluetooth, pipewire depends on instead of bluez-libs.

Needs to be marked as providing otherwise this can't be installed if pipewire is on your system.

bidulock commented on 2021-04-30 08:47 (UTC)

Not sure if it is the best solution, but I changed --enable-mesh to --disable-mesh to avoid the problem until upstream fixes it.

desaparecido commented on 2021-04-15 13:04 (UTC)

hi, yeah, same here, is from upstream, since this commit:

but I don't know how to resolve :-/

desaparecido commented on 2021-02-19 08:45 (UTC)

with latest update in official repo, is needed to add to provides:

to avoid conflict with bluez-libs

here the commit:

Strykar commented on 2019-08-15 14:50 (UTC)

This package provides bluez-utils? I can't find the avinfo binary.

pastleo commented on 2019-03-30 06:01 (UTC) (edited on 2019-03-30 06:02 (UTC) by pastleo)

It seems now bluetoothd is located at /usr/lib/bluetoothd

I fix this by editing /usr/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service

changing this line: ExecStart=/usr/lib/bluetooth/bluetoothd

to this: ExecStart=/usr/lib/bluetoothd

eh5 commented on 2019-02-26 14:22 (UTC) (edited on 2019-02-26 14:24 (UTC) by eh5)

@salvatoreG I think it's a bug of bluez buildfiles.

phanta commented on 2019-02-26 13:49 (UTC) (edited on 2019-02-26 15:03 (UTC) by phanta)

Can you add versioning to bluez-libs in the provides as well? It still has conflicts with a package that depends on bluez-libs >= 5.0

salvatoreG commented on 2019-02-26 12:10 (UTC)

Hi, service file points to wrong bluetoothd path, ExecStart=/usr/lib/bluetooth/bluetoothd instead of ExecStart=/usr/lib/bluetoothd

eh5 commented on 2019-02-23 11:23 (UTC)


Could you please versioning provides?

bidulock commented on 2015-12-10 14:10 (UTC)

@impatt automake and autoconf are in "base-devel". You cannot build AUR packages without them so they are not listed. @Celti namcap does not report a necessary dependency on "systemd". Also, if systemd is not installed you don't have an archlinux system.

commented on 2015-12-10 11:29 (UTC)

This needs a dependency on systemd (not just libsystemd) or it will refuse to build in a clean chroot. The only things that are assumed to be installed and not necessary in the depends array are packages in base-devel, not base, so please add this.

impatt commented on 2015-12-07 16:54 (UTC)

Please, add to makedepend() "automake", "autoconf" Thank you

bidulock commented on 2015-10-20 12:46 (UTC)

Yes, 'base' not 'core'. Thanks for the very meaningful correction.

commented on 2015-10-20 00:29 (UTC)

erm, no? I think you mean 'base', [core] is a repo, base is a group. Either way, its a 'default'

bidulock commented on 2015-09-24 00:09 (UTC)

Added git to makedepends. systemd is in core. Core packages are not included in dependencies because without "core" you do not have an archlinux system.

IncredibleLaser commented on 2015-09-23 17:59 (UTC)

On another seemingly useless note, this package depends on systemd.

IncredibleLaser commented on 2015-09-23 17:55 (UTC)

How is one supposed to build this without git?

commented on 2015-09-12 04:39 (UTC)

Better yet, here's a fixed and updated PKGBUILD (they can now accept git urls [and other source code management schemes] directly in the sources array, so less verbosity):

hemite commented on 2015-09-11 04:14 (UTC)

Package is still broken, as vohof said earlier. I'm marking this package is out of date.

Also conflicts with bluez-hid2hci, fix /lib path -> /usr/lib Fixed PKGBUILD:

Soul_Est commented on 2014-08-28 12:45 (UTC)

I have adopted the package and will have a new PKGBUILD sometime this weekend.

polyopath commented on 2013-12-15 20:08 (UTC)

Someone can update the PKGBUILD ? -actualize Version infos (5.12) -remove /etc/rc.d support (now by default archlinux use systemd) -actualize configure options (maybe like this): ./configure --prefix=/usr \ --sysconfdir=/etc \ --localstatedir=/var \ --libexecdir=/lib \ --enable-threads \ --enable-library \ --enable-sixaxis // For the fresh, but functional PS3 (sixaxis/dualshock) controler support. -and maybe other changes...

bidulock commented on 2013-05-22 06:19 (UTC)

bluez-git 20130302-1 is installing a deprecated sysvinit script in /etc/rc.d/bluetooth. Please remove in PKGBUILD.

bidulock commented on 2013-03-24 12:26 (UTC)

Add 'libical' to makedepends.

juantascon commented on 2011-12-19 17:29 (UTC)

I'll diswon this package as I have no time right now, feel free to adopt it and fix it, have a nice day

sati commented on 2010-03-24 23:56 (UTC)

This package is missing the following files from the Arch bluez package: /etc/rc.d/bluetooth /etc/conf.d/bluetooth
