I have a Gateway NV series laptop with a Bluetooth chip installed. I was running 10.04 and couldn't seem to get my Bluetooth chip to work (there's a light on the laptop which glows blue when bluetooth is running and enabled, I've never actually seen it come on until today), and just today I wiped and reinstalled from scratch 11.04. I saw the light come on! It was amazing! However, when I actually fired up the Bluetooth application to pair my keyboard with it, it asked me if I wanted to turn Bluetooth on. I clicked the "Yes" button, and nothing happened. In the tray, I clicked the indicator and it asked me if I wanted to turn Bluetooth off. I did, nothing happened. Then, I tried turning it back on again, no dice. Nothing changed in the preferences window, I had no way of pairing with any devices since the dialog was not there. This is what it looked like:
Things weren't working, so I popped a reboot. Goodbye, blue light. It never came back on. This is now what I saw:
I have a USB dongle on-hand which I thought I'd use just to get the keyboard working, this is now what I see:
I have installed every bluez-* package in the repos. What can I do to get this working? It would be SO nice to actually be able to use the Bluetooth inside of my computer and not have to resort to an ugly, port-blocking USB dongle.
