I've got Bluetooth running by adding (bluetooth-service) to my list ofservices and connecting my devices via 'bluetoothctl', which are nowfully functional, yet the GNOME Settings panel for Bluetooth still saysit couldn't find Bluetooth and asks me to insert a Bluetooth dongle.
It doesn't bother me much since after trusting/pairing my devices, theynow connect automatically after a reboot, but it's an inconveniencenevertheless.

Wild guess: could it be that we’re missing a .service D-Bus file or apolkit file for whatever deals with Bluetooth in GNOME? Does theSettings panel or D-Bus or polkit leave any messages?
Thanks,Ludo’.

When I install bluetooth-service and click the "Bluetooth" item in GNOMEsettings, the following lines are added to /var/log/messages:
Nov 4 13:39:29 localhost dbus-daemon[471]: [system] Rejected send message, 2 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.126" (uid=1000 pid=1976 comm="/gnu/store/9imb9ffn8rkrp0bijlcxnvx496wl510n-gnome-") interface="org.freedesktop.DBus.ObjectManager" member="GetManagedObjects" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination=":1.139" (uid=0 pid=2886 comm="/gnu/store/052b2lxw9d4qypr8gsv71f0zn8qljvax-bluez-")Nov 4 13:39:29 localhost dbus-daemon[471]: [system] Rejected send message, 2 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.126" (uid=1000 pid=1976 comm="/gnu/store/9imb9ffn8rkrp0bijlcxnvx496wl510n-gnome-") interface="org.bluez.AgentManager1" member="RegisterAgent" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination=":1.139" (uid=0 pid=2886 comm="/gnu/store/052b2lxw9d4qypr8gsv71f0zn8qljvax-bluez-")
On a side note, given that Bluetooth is listed in GNOME settings, perhapsbluetooth-service should also be added to %desktop-services? It'sincluded by default in Trisquel.

The other non-obvious thing about installing bluetooth-service is thatbluetoothd fails to run until dbus-system has been restarted, thoughthere's no error that explains this. I ended up restarting the machineas running `herd restart dbus-system` crashed GNOME.
