Package: kdebluetooth
Version: 1.0~beta8-6+b1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

I've upgraded some libs in my system (KDE 3.5) and my KDE system ceased 
recognizing the Bluetooth dongle.
There is no external sign of the error, but kblueplugd tells what is happening:

$ kblueplugd
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/kblueplugd", line 35, in <module>
    if len(manager.ListAdapters()):
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.5/dbus/", line 68, in __call__
    return self._proxy_method(*args, **keywords)

    message, timeout)
dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: Method 
"ListAdapters" with signature "" on interface "org.bluez.Manager" doesn't exist

Problem is NOT the access rights, since user is in groups netdev and bluetooth

please keep the bug (578...@bugs.debian.or) CCed.

Mixing releases is _not_ supported: you can't expect (from Debian) to get a 
working system if you mix libraries and binaries from Lenny and Squeeze. I'm 
hereby closing this bug, because we can't support this use case: there are 
backports if you really need more up2date packages.

There are two things: Debian and KDE. On the Debian side, you can't mix 
as you are doing: either stick with pure Lenny (+ eventually backports) or go 

Going to Squeeze fully implies that you have to migrate to KDE4: you can't get 
the stability of Lenny (with KDE 3.5) and the bleeding-edgyness of Squeeze at 
the same time.

Please reopen this bug if you can reproduce this bug either on a pure Lenny or 
on a pure Squeeze.
