I have Ubuntu 12.04 lts. When I want to connect my phone via bluetooth, it doesn't be recognized. I works fine on Windows 7. On the other hand, in the phone, I see my laptop but i cant connect with it.

Anybody has an idea on how to solve this?

icon is showing that bluetooth is on but it hasn't option of adding a device..

  • What is the model of the phone? What do you see in System Settings > Bluetooth?
