Fix for Bluetooth Indicator bug in Ubuntu 13.10

Hi Guys,

I was facing the issue with Bluetooth in Ubuntu 13.10. I was able to connect my bluetooth headset but wasn't able to see it in my sound settings. Thus was unable to use it. To resolve it, I found a fix for this and here it follows:

1. Install the pre-requisites :

sudo apt-get install bzr build-essential

2. And install the dependencies:

sudo apt-get build-dep indicator-bluetooth

3. Branch the fork from Launchpad:

bzr branch lp:~robert-ancell/indicator-bluetooth/dont-hide-on-rfkill

4. Jump to the directory:

cd dont-hide-on-rfkill

5. Now run following command to build debian package:
dpkg-buildpackage


This gives an error that "Unmet build dependencies: libdbusmenu-gtk3-dev libgnome-bluetooth-dev libgtk-3-dev libido3-0.1-dev libindicator3-dev valac-0.18"

Lets go ahead these dependencies:

After installing these, lets try to run this again:
 dpkg-buildpackage 

as a result the debian package is created :

Lets go out to home directory and install the debian package:
go to home directory:
cd  
and then:
sudo dpkg -i indicator-bluetooth_0.0.6daily13.02.19-0ubuntu1_i386.deb 

and.. it works !! 

and then restart your system. Now the bluetooth icon remains even you turn it off and just gets grey when turned off.


Hope it helps !

Cheers!

Hey, I am trying this fix, and everything goes as u described except for the very last step, when I type the command, I get:
