How do I install a bazaar fork in 13.10?

I found a Bazaar fork promising a solution to one of my issues here:
Bluetooth indicator disappears on turning off bluetooth

Problem is, I followed their instructions, and all it did was download the code to a local folder in my $user home.

Where do I go on from here? How do I install the code so that I can start getting the benefits promised by the solution?

Here is Solutions:

We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.

Solution 1

Install the pre-requisites:

sudo apt-get install bzr build-essential 

And install the dependencies:

sudo apt-get build-dep indicator-bluetooth  

Branch the fork from Launchpad:

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

Jump to the directory:

cd dont-hide-on-rfkill  


Now you have two options:

Compile from source


sudo make install

Install from compiled .deb

If you would rather install from a .deb run:





sudo dpkg -i indicator-bluetooth_0.0.6daily13.02.19-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb

Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
