Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit

$ gsettings get com.canonical.indicator.bluetooth visible

$ rfkill unblock bluetooth
Can't open RFKILL control device: No such file or directory

$ rfkill list all

$ dmesg | grep blue

Bluetooth configuration

I use a USB Bluetooth dongle. My PC haven't bluetooth integrated.
I can enable bluetooth and pair one headset (like it shows the screenshot).
But the bluetooth indicator isn't showed.
What's the problem?

I haven't any problem with language. – Juan Simón Mar 12 '13 at 17:17
No, no. I didn't mean that. I was referring to the screenshoot. Is just a help, it won't solve your problem. – Lucio Mar 12 '13 at 18:07
