I have a problem connecting my Sony SRS-XB30 Bluetooth Speaker using Blueman Bluetooth Manager in OpenSUSE Leap 42.3 on my desktop computer. About a week ago it would connect fine without a problem. However, since then there was a few software updates through SUSE on-line and Bluedevil5 was replaced with Blueman Manager and it had problems re-pairing with the SRS-XB30 bluetooth speaker. The following is my basic information:

blueman: Version 2.0.6-2.3.1
BlueZ: Version 5.41-6.1
Distribution: OpenSUSE Leap 42.3 64bit
Desktop environment: Plasma KDE Version 5.8.7-2.1

At first the problem was pairing the SRS-XB30 with the Blueman Manager because the SRS-XB30 expected to be paired with a PIN value of 0000, which the Blueman Manager never prompted for a PIN value directly on the Desktop screen but through the Plasma KDE Notifications. By the time I clicked on Notifications and then clicked on Enter Authority and the PIN prompt window finally appears the time has expired for me to enter the 0000 PIN value. However, when I finally got PIN value entered and the SRS-XB30 device paired with the bluetoothctl text command, there is still another problem with getting the SRS-XB30 device connected. The following indicates the problem:

However, when I go back using the Blueman Manager GUI, I now see the following:

Blueman-Manager-6.0.2-SRS-XB30-04.png

When I click on the "More" button, the following information is shown:

Blueman-Manager-6.0.2-SRS-XB30-05.png

From what I understand from this error message displayed, it looks like the DBus support for the blueman.bluez Bluetooth Stack is missing the protocol for the Sony SRS-XB30 loudspeaker device, which is odd because the SRS-XB30 device was working fine prior to the OpenSUSE Leap 42.3 update on-line from SUSE. Can anyone correct this problem with the DBus data base?

Thank you,

David A. Smith
