i have a samsung series 5 book. ubuntu says "No bluetooth adapter found". How can i fix this. im also suspecting that its because of my previous OS, I turn the bluetooth off(using the driver provided by the manufacturer for that OS) and forgot to turn it on before formatting to ubuntu. is there any way to turn bluetooth on in my case? built-in bluetooth device doesn't have a hard switch.
