[Bug 446657] Re: Bluetooth's on/off status doesn't update from the SetProperty D-Bus method that bluetoothd sends


I'm on Ubuntu 14.04, a Toshiba Portégé Z830 with Atheros bluetooth,
gnome-bluetooth v I can confirrm I'm still experiencing this
issue for the past two or three years. Never seen it solved. Bluetooth
state always on after reboot. Indeed having to switch it off every time
makes Ubuntu less user-friendly. If it's useful for someone, when I use
KDE I don't have this problem. Only with Gnome (same Ubuntu and Mint),

  Bluetooth's on/off status doesn't update from the SetProperty D-Bus
  method that bluetoothd sends

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: gnome-bluetooth

  Gnome's bluetooth applet should get a bluetooth device's on/off status
  through dbus from SetProperty setting sent by bluetoothd. This
  information was given in
  http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.bluez.kernel/4302 There is a
  setting controlling this feature: RememberPowered=true in

  Is the dbus message is even sent? If it is sent, why gnome-bluetooth doesn't do anything for it? Does bluez's SetProperty actually find the last (if even saved) bluetooth status?
