Description

The bluetooth applet blueman is crashing when the desktop starts up. It creates a crash report which makes us look bad, we should figure out how to remove the blueman-applet from the toolbar.

The remove

apt-get remove blueman

yeah, remove it.

we've got xubuntu 12.04 on a few of the workstations here and blueman was crashing all the time (and didn't need to be there for a non-laptop install anyway). those crashes + most of the Canonical provided packages missing more than a 3 word description of what they do (apt-cache show) has left me a bit wary to upgrade any of the older machines to the new release. Here's hoping that 12.04.1 is less buggy when it arrives.

I also removed bluez, not sure if that needs to go too or not.

I've been just disabling the service in the session startup, rather the uninstalling the whole app. There should be a way to disable thru a script?

Maybe: rm -f ~user/.config/autostart/blueman.desktop

Replying to micha:

I've been just disabling the service in the session startup, rather the uninstalling the whole app.

the software is buggy & we need whatever disk space we can find for other things -- if we're not using it it may as well go. as soon as someone makes a new user in their VM or install they'll get stung with it again if it is not removed.

I've added the removal to setup.sh now, but commented it out until it is tested to be sure it doesn't want to remove the entire xubuntu desktop with it.

best, Hamish

I could try removing it in my clean VM before beta2 later today and find out if it will remove everything :)

On a VM of the recent Beta1 I removed both blueman and bluez (also took out bluez-alsa), with no ill effects that I see. Total disk space saved ~ 5MB.

This is easily fixed by apt-get remove blueman. No other casualties by that.
