Hi Michele,
I am not a python coder and it is beyond my interests. The purpose of the
code (if I understand correctly) is to spawn the kbluetooth app (which
appears in the system tray) when adapter is plugged in.
As stated I would prefer the functionality as in blueman. This means the
applet runs always and user can enable or disable the adapter etc. - the
python code is obsolete for what I want to do, but it is nice to have.

As also mentioned unfortunately the code is not running "as is" in wheezy
with TDE. It does not make sense to me to work on it.

The code has good conceptual and functional design, which can be reused into
some extent, but the rest would need to be redesigned and rewritten ... I
may try to do it. I could learn a bit more about TDE ... and about
designing complex apps with dbus.

regards
