I installed Unified Remote today in hope that I can use it with my bluetooth adapter to control my PC using my phone. But as I installed Unified Remote and loaded up the web interface, I got this error:
Bluetooth: Could not connect to SDP
Google has absoluetly nothing helpful about this error so this is one of my only chances here.
noneatme@noneatme-desktop:/etc/bluetooth$ sudo sdptool browse local
Failed to connect to SDP server on FF:FF:FF:00:00:00: Connection refused
noneatme@noneatme-desktop:/etc/bluetooth$ uname -a
Linux noneatme-desktop 4.4.0-22-generic #40-Ubuntu SMP Thu May 12 22:03:46 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
noneatme@noneatme-desktop:/etc/bluetooth$ /usr/lib/bluetooth/bluetoothd -C
D-Bus setup failed: Connection ":1.129" is not allowed to own the service "org.bluez" due to security policies in the configuration file
(it works with sudo)
Starting Bluetoothd with –compat argument won't fix the problem.
What can I do?
/edit: I fixed this problem by starting the unified remote server as sudo. Is this really the only option I have?
