I am unable to get bluetooth tethering working between Google Nexus 4 and Lenovo Thinkpad T420i running Fedora 20 KDE. Here are systemd statuses.

@wolnei When I enable Bluetooth tethering in Android, KDE shows Bluetooth internet as one of the network options but it won't connect to it or constantly connects or disconnects.

what is your version of Bluez and kde-plasma-nm?

That system is long gone. I have to try this again on a new system. BTW I have kde-plasma-nm-0.9.3.3-4.fc20.x86_64 and bluez-5.17-1.fc20.x86_64.

When you connect your phone with Bluetooth tethering on and tried to add your device in Bluez, KDE don't create a automatic connection or give that option to you?
