I don't understand why my bluetooth device has disappeared and won't connect. This is for my System76 Kudu Professional. Here's the output for code:

I have this same problem. As a workaround, I installed Debian stable (wheezy) on a separate partition and enabled the bluetooth adapter (after this Ubuntu's bluetooth works). AIUI, the problem is with newer versions of the kernel/udev. You might also want to check your BIOS settings for a bluetooth option. –  edwin Mar 9 at 23:44

BTW, please consider submitting "it affects me too" in Bug #1283621. Just in case the problem is not the same, run rfkill list and show us the output. –  edwin Mar 9 at 23:52

Actually i just found out I was able to get it working again by 'rfkill unblock [index]' so that seems to be working now –  ryan Mar 10 at 2:54
