I looked at the solutions here :


None of those work for me. I have a Asus U32U laptop with 12.04 installed. Bluetooth has never worked correctly for me in the past. Previously, I used to stop and start the bluetooth service manually and that used to do the trick. However, that solution stopped working since the latest set of updates.

What can I do to make it work correctly or at the very least, make it work at all?


U32U:~$ rfkill list
...
2: asus-bluetooth: Bluetooth
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no
3: hci0: Bluetooth
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no

U32U:~$ lsusb

Try installing blueman bluetooth manager from the software center. It worked for me.

Unfortunately I think this might actually be the solution. The default bluetooth manager doesn't work very well. Installing blueman solved my problems as well. (cc @AsheeshR) –  Seth Aug 13 '13 at 1:30
