I've Sony Vaio E Series laptop VPCEH3AEA, while I was installing Ubuntu 12.10, the bluetooth worked well.

After finishing the installation process, there was a problem that when I tried to activate bluetooth, it should be working but it doesn't work at all.

The slide button of bluetooth setting never goes to the on option and the hardware indicates it work, plus I can't connect my laptop with my BB.

Is there a solution?!

Thanks in advance

yes it does.

Open Ubuntu Software Center look up for bluez-tools and install it, with the OBEX add-on.

you can install some bluetooh managers if you want. just look up bluetooth on Ubuntu Software Center but the original one is fine.
