Bluetooth examples and permissions

  • Hi!
    I'm working on this example:

    to understand a little better some features.
    First question, if I don't run the application as root I get a "permission denied" about hciconfig. But I don't want to run it as root. I added the dbus policies for my current user and set cap for hciconfig and related tools:

    sudo setcap 'cap_net_raw,cap_net_admin+eip' `which hciconfig`

    But I still need to run as root. What am I missing?

    Second question.
    I want to customize the GATT server example and embed it into a class. But I have some difficulties to handle the QScopePointers and the const auto variables.

    Might someone explain how should I modify them to write a class? The goal is to add signals/slots mechanism to allow the application to manage the GATT server (i.e. start/stop advertising, read/write values etc...). I don't want to rely on the main.cpp because I want to embed into a bigger project...

    Thanks in advance!
