What should I do?


bluez5 is not backward compatible with bluez4 and they can't be
co-installed. openSUSE 13.1 only has bluez5. I assume XFCE only
supports bluez4.

Why should I care about bluez4? I'm using XFCE in 13.1, and the
release notes talk about KDE not being ready for bluez5. I'm not using
KDE, but XFCE, so that should not affect me. I assume that XFCE IS
ready and uses the available bluez 5 in the system.

I'm fairly sure you're wrong. This is one of the few posts on factory
I could find:

Basically that thread says Gnome should work. KDE is being worked on
and at least in August they didn't even have a plan for the other DEs.
I don't know of any ongoing effort to fix bluetooth for anything but

If XFCE is affected, why was not this told in the release notes as well?

No idea. File a bug and they might fix the release notes for future
potential upgraders.
