Show/Hide icon Blueman taskbar 12.04

Asked by John Doe

Now that I installed Blueman, I ticked off the icon for the taskbar.
Problem: I can not access the Settings anymore to modify the Plug inns.
Is there a way to get to the Settings?
It would be nice to have the option concerning show/hide the icon in the taskbar, to have it under the "view" pulldown menu.
Running 12.04 under Unity.

Sorry Wojox, but I still do not have access to the Settings, so that I can access the plug-inns.

The file list shows there're some options to start, maybe try either one of them to get to settings.

btw. you know blueman is gnome2 and 12.04 also has it's standard bluetooth (gnome-bluetooth 3.2) in system-settings?

Since blueman is gnome2 according to file list it uses gconf to manage settings, so as workaround open gconf-editor, go to

if it isn't there use the search option of gconf.
Then find the option to set systray true or false.

Can you help with this problem?
