[Bug 1482688] Re: Bluez reports quoted hostname


This bug was fixed in the package bluez - 4.101-0ubuntu29

bluez (4.101-0ubuntu29) wily; urgency=medium

  * debian/patches/unquote-hostname.patch:
    - As hostname is quoted in /etc/machine-info we have to unquote it before
      starting to use it or all remote device will see the quotes in our name.

  Bluez reports quoted hostname

Status in bluez package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  At least on touch devices BlueZ reports a quoted hostname like
  "Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition" which is then send over to other devices
  including the quotes.

  bluetoothd[6402]: plugins/adaptername.c:set_pretty_name() Setting name '"Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition"' for device 'hci0'
  bluetoothd[6402]: plugins/mgmtops.c:mgmt_set_name() index 0, name "Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition"

  BlueZ reads the hostname from /etc/machine-info on startup which has
  the following set

  PRETTY_HOSTNAME="Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition"

  Code in BlueZ needs to be changed to ignore the quotes from the value.
