I just upgraded to The boxed 11.1 from 10.2. I know, it's a long time to go
between upgrades.

dmesg and /var/log/messages show the kernel module being loaded and system
info shows my cheapie no-name bluetooth dongle. KdeBluetooth says there is
no device. I've tried under both KDE 3.5 and KDE4.

Any suggestions?

TIA

It is known bug.
I think it already resolved for kdbluetooth4 see
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=438956
There is 1-click install for kde4 stable (4.1.3)
http://software.opensuse.org/ymp/KDE:KDE4:STABLE:Desktop/openSUSE_11.1/kdebluetooth4.ymp

For kdebluetooth3, the bug is still open see
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=450107
Well, there is a workaround, use bluez3 instead of bluez that comes
with 11.1. See
