Re: Bluetooth Install Problem on Chimaera

What's the output of apt-cache policy dbus for you?

Re: Bluetooth Install Problem on Chimaera

Fair enough. You haven't said there is an issue.

You merely show that with apt preferences set up so as to not install dbus, then apt will not install anything that declares it depends on dbus.

Re: Bluetooth Install Problem on Chimaera

My issue is that I was unaware that apt my preferences are set up so as to not install dbus, I'm running a Devuan derivative - Forge OS so part of the learning curve for me.
