All the messages were simply dependencies incompatible with this or that packet. I could not know which packet to install first. Luckily after gsettings reset com.canonical.Unity.Devices blacklist and restoring I have the state where system settings etc are available.

My bt audio conf is default withoyt any changes (ubuntu 14.04) /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf Now, Just ...

upgrading the kernel from 3.13 to 3.16 solved the issue for me LTSEnablementStack

I suggest to install 3.19 kernel by sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-vivid And then follow the GUIDE to obtain, convert and install firmware. It is not legal to distribute the firmware. But I found a newer driver HERE. New devices have been added and firmware files are newer.

To answer on how to get your Ubuntu version visible: System Settings > Details. So when you've obtained your Ubuntu version you can go on by setting up Bluetooth. I did some research and on Ubuntu 14.04 there is an issue on this. If that's your distro I would recommend installing another distro because it's not that stable yet. A distro close to Ubuntu: ...

After 3 hours of trying to fix this, I've found a solution: I copied all the files from Windows (Program Files\Common Files\QCA-Bluetooth) to Elementary's /lib/firmware/ar3k folder. Got the solution from here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1425252 Upd: Sorry for the mess, that's not a solution. It doesn't work after reboot
