Im not sure I should be reporting this as a bug as it may have been something I have have done to cause this. I have duplicate icons on my Panel for bluetooth and would like to remove them both.

Terminal Reading

 1074 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/sbin/bluetoothd
 5036 ?        Sl     0:02 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/blueman-applet
 5040 ?        Sl     0:00 bluetooth-applet
 5872 pts/0    S+     0:00 grep --color=auto blue

I did a bit of exploring in Synaptic Package Manager but unfortunately, I'm none the wiser, however one is the blueman project the other is gnome.

Are they actually the same? They may look the same, but what if you look at their menus (not just left-click, but try right click), particularly the "about"? Ubuntu has several standard bluetooth management applets and you might be running more than one of them. –  Chan-Ho Suh Apr 15 '12 at 23:14
    
I maybe should have included the fact in the original questions that the menus are partially different therefore your assumption is correct. I looked at the Synaptic Package Manager to see if I could remove one of them but didnt find 2. I will continue to investigate. –  Stephen Myall Apr 16 '12 at 8:23

Hi Stephen. In the terminal, type ps ax | grep blue and this will give you everything (and maybe a few more things) having to do with bluetooth running as processes on your system. There should be two of them that have something like "applet" as part of their name. If you're not sure, just paste in the whole thing in your answer and we can straighten it out. –  Chan-Ho Suh Apr 16 '12 at 9:01

@StephenMyall - blueman is not part of the default install - I would suggest you remove that package. –  fossfreedom Apr 16 '12 at 20:55

Ok, so as fossfreedom pointed out, blueman is not in the default Ubuntu install, so the fix is to just uninstall that.

Awesome way to solve two bluetooth icon problem on indicator.

Just go to (1) software centre, (2) into Installed section, (3) Search for Bluetooth, (4) Remove the one except Blueman coz it works best on 13.04. (5) Restart and you are done.
