I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on my Mid-2012 15" (non-Retina) MacBook Pro. At first the Wi-Fi wasn't working but I found a quick fix for that. The problem I'm now having is that I can't enable bluetooth. When I go to "System settings" and then "Bluetooth" it looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/gEuoL.png . I can't flip the switches, "Blueman" also doesn't work (all buttons greyed out). In the 'Additional drivers" nothing gets returned ... I have an html file of my hardware (sanitized file), you can find it here: http://www.2shared.com/document/Evo9OORj/myhardware.html .

Really hope this can be fixed. I powered my Magic Mouse on and strangely enough it kind of works. Left and right buttons work, but I can't scroll/ perform multitouch gestures. The Magic Mouse turns up nowhere... There's also no Bluetooth symbol in the upper bar ...

Thanks in advance
