lp group? really?

Anyone can confirm the statement:

In order for a user to add and manage Bluetooth devices using Blueman, the user must be added to the 'lp' group. See /etc/dbus-1/system.d/bluetooth.conf for the section that enables users of the 'lp' group to communicate with the Bluetooth daemon.

CUPS group as mandatory sounds a bit odd in this context.

I can't answer, but for reference [1] is the edit that added that paragraph. -- Kynikos (talk) 02:51, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

Not in official repos

Blueman seems not to be in official repos as the article suggests:

[root@Piki-PC ~]# pacman -Ss blueman
[root@Piki-PC ~]# pacman -Syu blueman
:: Synchronizing package databases...
 core is up to date
 extra is up to date
 community is up to date
 multilib is up to date
error: target not found: blueman

AFAIK the repos mentioned by pacman above are all the official Arch repos (unless you count AUR and the testing repos), so this begs the question: is the article wrong, or did pacman get high off of pellets and misplace the package?

  • Blueman was in community but it was removed fairly recently. It seems to be dead upstream and Arch developers want to move to bluez-5 which Blueman doesn't support. --TheCycoONE (talk) 01:27, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
