Hello, about kdebluetooth, I had already looked at it before.
I've found that the last ubuntu package contained patches for 1.08 so 
I've used them. I also found and wrote other patches, so that it builds 
correctly against, even without TQT porting.

See here:

Alas, as said Darell, it does not work with Bluez4 library, only Bluez3. 
So the application is useless, it does not detect any bluetooth receiver 
in the computer.
I did not find any guide to easily port Bluez3 application to Bluez4.
