Maybe in 14.04 you had enabled a hardware driver and no longer needed in 14.10? Go to: System Settings -> Software&Updates -> additional drives and "Do not use this device" Worked for me )

I also have UX301LA and I'm now running 14.10. I suffered from the same problem, but discovered a workaround that is not ideal, but works for now. Basically, it seems that the asus-nb-wmi module is not fully compatible with that hardware. Although, the actual problem seems to exist much deeper, blocking that module prevents creation of new rfkill entries ...

Welcome to the Linux world. Sorry you met a little bump there. Not sure what went wrong, but try these first before attempting a reinstall: Plug your laptop to a wired internet connection and boot up. Once booted, press "Ctrl+Alt+F1". If your built-in keyboard doesn't work, try using an external keyboard. Login into the system by typing the username and ...

I am sure if you are pairing your mouse incorrectly it wont work. I was having the exact same issue. My Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse paired fine and then I left the computer for the day. The screensaver came on and a few hours later I came back to use my computer and my mouse was not working. I probably paired it incorrectly the first time as well. So, I ...

Key to the above problem is this phrase: "Once the discovery stops, devices neither connected to or paired will be automatically removed by bluetoothd within three minutes." Please read Device discovery section from http://www.bluez.org/bluez-5-api-introduction-and-porting-guide/ I had similar issue, but got it paired and connected. To pair and connect a ...

I finally have my Dell (with wireless+bluetooth BCM43142) working on wireless & Bluetooth with kernels >= 3.13. I did somehow by chance, but it is working now.

First of all you should specify your question: which Bluetooth adapter do you use? is it onboard or usb? for what do you need the bluetoothconnection for? Then check whether bluez: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install bluez-utils libopenobex1 if you use gnome as windowmanager additionally install sudo apt-get install gnome-bluetooth Do these ...

I have the same issue with bluetooth on Dell Inspiron 15R. What's amazing, it works perfectly on Ubuntu 12.04. After fresh installation, I was able to connect any bluetooth device. After upgrading to 14.04 - there's no such possibility and when I type: dmesg | grep -i blue I see warning can't load firmware. I suppose that some of the proprietary ...

Answers saying that I have to install Windows to get a firmware for Linux ... sound wrong, isn't it? But the previous answers were gold. I have Bluetooth working after long time in my Dell with Ubuntu 12.04 386. Here my completions to the previous answers (especially sb): The sb's cab is good and had the hex files for several chips on this family. ...

For those of you where inserting the line rfkill block bluetooth (or any other) in /etc/rc.local doesn't work, try to include the same line in the end of ~/.bashrc In my set up (Ubuntu 14.04, Thinkpad W540), no option worked inserting it in /etc/rc.local but the former did work in bashrc. Note this will work just for the current user, not globally for all ...

Similar steps as from Diabolik2. New information is where and how to get the hex file.

my problem was that I had the option sixad --boot-yes enabled. After disabling (--boot-no), rebooting and manually starting sixad it worked fine again.

Metadata is sent over AVRCP profile, not over A2DP. If your phone does AVRCP 1.0 then it will not send any metadata info. If it does AVRCP 1.3 or above then you should see metadata. Google play music player does not support sending track number and controlling repeat and random.

I finally found a command that worked: sudo hciconfig hci0 sspmode 0 This command sets Secure Simple Pairing mode to 0 for the device hci0. This was a new pairing mechanism introduced in the Bluetooth 2.1 spec. However, it seems to cause trouble with my keyboard and disabling it solved the problem for me. There is still one downside - the setting doesn't ...

I had the same problem while installing a dual boot system with Win7x64 and Ubuntu 14.04. I have the same Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub as you do. I booted Windows and turned on the bluetooth adapter. After I booted Ubuntu and I saw the bluetooth. I can't explain why yet.

If you're using blueman (and it sounds like you do), try utopic's version. Your issue is discussed in #1283003.

First try to find your bluetooth in additional drives, if it won't help you have to find your bluetooth driver and install it from oem's site. If you don't know the id of your bluetoot (most probably it's together with your wireless card) by enteringsudo lshw

Check the output and find dmesg: dmesg | grep -i blue Also update the firmware: sudo apt-get install linux-firmware

blueman and pulseaudio do not play well together in Ubuntu 14.04. If you want to use it, try the utopic's blueman package which has a fix.

Using the 3.13 kernel you will likely have to download from https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/trusty/+package/bcmwl-kernel-source Download the 32 or 64 bit depending on your install

Try to use different tool to pair your Bluetooth device, e.g. blueman-manager (probably Bluetooth device is not "trusted"). I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 and have Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse. When pairing mouse in Ubuntu's Bluetooth settings dialog, mouse doesn't reconnect after suspend/resume and even after some time of idle. I unpaired mouse, paired and ...

It seems that the firewall/security policy preventing the RW permission, first check Ubuntu firewall rules, enable or allow your access not the device, make trust both the device each other for secure connection. also check the settings from mobile handset. Remember: flash the default firewall rules always not a good idea. If we assume that the hardware is ...

After searching a lot I've found two solutions. One is bluetoothctl which is performs exactly what you are looking for. You can do almost anything from command line :) Because I'm lazy and my memory is still on HDD I need some applet as well, so I've installed bluedevil on my mate desktop :) it is working except scanning, but it is fine like this

You must install the driver : You can find the solution in the first answer: Ralink RT 3290 Bluetooth Problem on Ubuntu 14.04

UPDATE: The problem actually solved itself: When I use laptop on battery power (AC disconnected), the led light is red, meaning the wireless card is really off. Probably because off power saving settings, and that was what I wanted in the first place.

Blueman could report the error for two reasons. DHCP server (dnsmasq or your equivalent) not installed. ( less probable ) DHCP server (dnsmasq) is installed. But it is not your env PATH. ( mostly your case ). So make sure dnsmasq is installed and it is in your PATH ( or else add it )
