I can't use my Bluetooth with Ubuntu 12.04 64bit .

I have installed bluetooth, gnome-bluetooth and blueman packages. But i'm getting No adapter found error.

eray@eray-vaio-ubuntu:~$ sudo hciconfig hci0 reset
[sudo] password for eray: 
Can't init device hci0: Connection timed out (110)
eray@eray-vaio-ubuntu:~$ rfkill list
0: hci0: Bluetooth
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no
1: phy0: Wireless LAN
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no
2: sony-wifi: Wireless LAN
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no
3: sony-bluetooth: Bluetooth
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no
eray@eray-vaio-ubuntu:~$ sudo hciconfig sony-bluetooth reset
Can't init device hci0: Connection timed out (110)
eray@eray-vaio-ubuntu:~$ 

I'm remambering, i was able to use my bluetooth with Ubuntu, about 7-8 months ago. So Ubuntu supporting my bluetooth device.

How can i install my bluetooth and solve this problem ?

NOTE , I've read a lots of question about this. Generally there are 3 answers.

  1. Upgrade to 12.04
  2. execute sudo hciconfig hci0 reset command
  3. unblock your device if it's blocked.

But as you seen, none of them helped me. Because of this, i'm asking this question.It's not a duplicated question.

Additional Datas

  1. These are dmesg messages about Bluetooth : http://paste.ubuntu.com/1324079/
  2. This is exact result of lsusb -v : http://paste.ubuntu.com/1324100/ (I got Couldn't open device, some information will be missing error 9 times !)
  3. I have linux-firmware but not linux-firmware-nonfree

This is a confirmed bug here (bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/898826) - you'll note, there is a workaround in #31 (I'm not sure if this is quantal or precise fix) - please subscribe to the bug report for updates. –  fossfreedom Nov 1 '12 at 20:12
    
@fossfreedom , ok last question. At first step : 1) download the ubuntu's linux-source . But which linux-source should i download ? packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=linux-source –  Eray Nov 1 '12 at 21:00
    
yep - that looks reasonable - apt-get source linux-source at a guess. If in doubt, post the in the bug thread for further help and clarification. –  fossfreedom Nov 1 '12 at 21:03
