module 'socket' has no attribute 'AF_BLUETOOTH'

See original GitHub issue

This is the output which gets triggered as soon as I try to pair the device:

    ctl_socket = socket.socket(socket.AF_BLUETOOTH, socket.SOCK_SEQPACKET,
AttributeError: module 'socket' has no attribute 'AF_BLUETOOTH'

Any idea on how to fix this? Thanks in advance. Btw, using openSUSE Tumbleweed.

Your problem is that the python version you are using does have proper Bluetooth support! I had the same problem when installed python from source and did not have libbluetooth-dev package installed on my system! So, install libbluetooth-dev (or something similar in other than Debian), and reinstall python. The easiest way to check it is working is to fireup a python console from terminal and try this:

from socket import AF_BLUETOOTH
