You might need to blacklist ath3k with echo "blacklist ath3k" | sudo tee /etc/modrobe.d/ath3k.conf Reboot and open a terminal and enter sudo modprobe ath3k to see if it makes a difference with your USB 3.0 ports as ath3k could be trying to load the firmware at a bad time.

It seems that there are bluetooth dongles which forge the Broadcom identifier even though they don't 100% follow the Bluetooth spec. Apparently my device, which cost $2 on ebay including shipping, is one of those. According to the bug linked, the Ubuntu devs know about this and are even including workarounds for these devices. However, the real solution is ...

Your problem might be related to this other question Try disabling USB 3.0 at the BIOS, and then try again. In the BIOS, the option will probably say something about "xHCI", which is another way of calling USB 3.0.

This has finally been figured out. The issue is that the bluetooth function of the 6235 is supplied by a separate interface, over the USB connection in the MiniPCIe port. Neither the J1800 or J1900 motherboards I am using have the USB portion of the MiniPCIe port connected.

Sennheiser BTD 500 USB, Bluetooth 3.0 provides APT-X on Linux including Ubuntu. It does it by posing as a audio device, not a bluetooth radio. So it handles the APT-X in hardware rather than software on the OS side.

Thanks this worked for me as well. As more confirmation/help for any others - I am using a inexpensive USB dongle and did not have to load any other drivers or settings. Initially after pairing the S805 it did appear amd offered the A2DP in Setting/Sound drop down but Ubunt froze (the first time I've experienced this in 14.04). After reboot: pairing and ...

Since the bluetooth adapter is an Atheros AR3012 it might suffer from a bug that will cause it to sometimes fail to load firmware during a cold boot. A workaround that has worked for me is to blacklist ath3k with echo "blacklist ath3k" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath3k.conf and then you can use terminal after booting to load ath3k with sudo modprobe ath3k or ...

Your problem is very similar to the issues I had with my Atheros bluetooth. Here is what I did to fix echo "blacklist ath3k" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath3k.conf And then I edited /etc/rc.local so it would load ath3k later in the boot process gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local And add modprobe ath3k above the last line that needs to be exit 0 Then save, exit ...

I have similar Bluetooth hardware. A Lenovo G50-70 with an Atheros Bluetooth card in it, running Kubuntu 14.04. From lsusb: Bus 002 Device 007: ID 0cf3:3004 Atheros Communications, Inc. I was also getting the failure to load error=-110 as well. What I have found is the /lib/firmware/ath3k-1.fw shipped with kubuntu is not working. The file shipped has a ...

Ubuntu 14.04 (current patches up to 1/15/2015) Lenovo ThinkPad W530. I found the Cirago BTA8000 at Fry's Electronics for $19.99. It was literally "plug and play". I tried several different brands and kept returning them because they couldn't be made to work. When I plugged in the BTA8000, I thought it was another failure - no dings, no horns, nothing to ...

Bluetooth 4 HID devices (like your mouse) require Bluez 5.15 to function. Unfortunetely, on Ubuntu 14.04, Bluez is at version 4. To update Bluez to version 5, you will have to do the following: Note: I haven't teseted this and these instructions, and they (while very unlikely) could break your machine due to this being an unofficial PPA.

Boot into the BIOS and you should find a setting that allows you to enable/disable the hardware switch, a check box for the wireless device you want controlled by the switch. This could be a physical switch such as a slide switch or a certain key combination such as Fn+F4. On my Dell I just cleared both boxes "Bluetooth and WiFi" and saved. Now it makes no ...

When you go to bluetooth set up a new device, you need to put 0000 as PIN options. Eventually the popping up and going away thing just stopped, for some reason.
