Sorry for second reply, I was unable to find the text I read today.
Also here it says
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/20/html/Release_Notes/sect-Release_Notes-Changes_for_Desktop.html 3.1.6. MATE > you can install and use bluedevil
"Because of compatibility issues with the new bluetooth stack, MATE does
not include a bluetooth applet by default. Users that need this
functionality should install the bluedevil package. "
So this probably works on xfce too.
