Bluetooth can not see any of the device and also when looking for computer bluetooth (visible) is not seen. how do I fix this. I have a lot of time searching on google to find out whether anyone else has the same problem as me.

If you see here I am trying to make sure whether the computer is able to detect my bluetooth by typing lsusb

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 1fea:0047  
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode)
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

camera/display                              skipped

and this problem has persisted from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS until now I was using 12.10 answer to this problem is still not answered yet

When I try to detect where this bluetooth maker I find it is not made ​​from the Cambridge Silicon Radio Bluetooth Dongle, but from AzureWave Technologies, Inc.. I trace it using the MAC address 0974% 3AF0% 3A6D% 3A66% 3A98% 3AAE +

So can I conclude here that it is a bug.
