I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 with a built-in Bluetooth adapter running Ubuntu 12.10.
It seems I can't enable it. It works fine in Windows 7, but in Ubuntu the option to enable it in the upper right corner seems not to work. In the settings it says it's off and if I flip the switch to enable it nothing happens. Everything remains grayed out and 'Bluetooth disabled' message remains there.
I also installed the Blueman applet and it doesn't find any adapters. Any thoughts about getting my Bluetooth enabled?
Below is some more hardware information.
