Bluetooth icon is not visible when device is locked but becomes visible when device is unlocked. Wifi, 4g and other icons seem to be always visible.

Sailfish OS version is 1.1.9.28 2.0.0.10

Screenshots:

Lock screen (no bluetooth icon): locked

Device unlocked (bluetooth icon visible): unlocked

Edit 2015-10-23: In the Early Access version 2.0.0.10 this issue is still unresolved, tagged with the current SFOS version.

Edit 2015-11-09: Edited this question to be a feature request to show the bluetooth status icon, as it turned out, it's left out intentionally as @AliNa commented (answered):

It's not a bug. The bluetooth status indicator is supposed to be invisible in lock screen – I don't know why.

/usr/share/lipstick-jolla-home-qt5/statusarea/StatusArea.qml lines 109-112:
        BluetoothStatusIndicator {
            anchors.verticalCenter: parent.verticalCenter
            visible: !lockscreenMode
        }

Commenting the 111th line with // at the beginning will make the bluetooth icon visible in lock screen.

@cemoi71 bluetooth is still working, I have both Pebble and carkit connected to my Jolla, and everything works as it should. So it's a matter of not showing the BT status correctly.

This is not only about bluetooth, but also location status indicator.

So maybe this should then be turned into a feature request, because at least I would like to see the status of the BT from the lock screen?

Edit: Turned the question in to a feature request.

What happens if line 111 is changed to visible: lockscreenMode instead of commenting it // ? Will the BT icon also appear then?

nick75 ( 2015-11-09 10:32:48 +0200 )edit

@nick75, it will show up only on lock screen.

Alen ( 2015-11-09 14:17:08 +0200 )edit

@AliNa, thanks! And that would certainly not be a wanted option.
