Description Matthias Clasen 2012-12-03 13:39:48 UTC
The privacy panel design
has a switch for 'visible over bluetooth'. That should do more or less the same as the existing 'discoverable' switch in the bluetooth panel, I think. Implementation needed.

As mentioned on IRC, this is more complicated to implement than the Visible switch in the Bluetooth panel.

The visible switch in the Bluetooth panel only changes the visibility for the default Bluetooth adapter, not for all the adapters. Also, by default, adapters are not visible, so plugging in any new Bluetooth device will make it invisible, whatever the default value for it.

Making it depend on the BlueZ 5 migration, as code changes would be necessary there, and there's no point in hacking on the very soon to be obsolete BlueZ 4 stack.

moving off the 3.8 list, considering that it is depending on bluez 5 migration

This isn't necessary anymore. The default adapter will only be visible when the Bluetooth panel is opened, and any changes to the other adapters can be done via the command-line if the user wishes. As we only handle a single Bluetooth adapter in the UI, this is the easiest course of action.
