I know this thread Enable bluetooth on lenovo ideapad y480. I recall having problems with the Wifi connection with this laptop, similar thread here. Now, I noticed that I get the error no bluetooth adapters found when trying to connect to the laptop my bluetooth devices. This laptop has bluetooth adapter so the thing is in software.

lsusb does not give the following but not bluetooth adapter

My kernel is the newest Linux 3.16.7-ctk11.

Outputs from Jyjyc's commands which I had to run now in Debian 8.1, since I do not have the latest Ubuntu anymore on this disk.

The command uname -r gives 3.16.0-4-amd64. The lsusb gives still the same as above. The command lspci gives

The command lsmod | egrep -i 'blue|bt|rfcomm' gives

How can you force enable bluetooth in 14.04?

  • What is your kernel version? uname -r? – Pilot6 Sep 8 '15 at 21:36
  • And please give output of dmesg | grep -i blue – Pilot6 Sep 8 '15 at 21:37
  • Please provide output for dmesg | egrep -i 'blue|firm' – Jeremy31 Sep 9 '15 at 22:11
  • @Masi Why do you provide information other than you are asked to provide? – Pilot6 Oct 28 '15 at 10:46
  • I provided information what was asked but he removed his answer. I provided thr info in debian because I have it now only with me. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Oct 28 '15 at 12:07

Do and install Bluetooth control manager blueman

sudo apt-get install blueman

Problem not in drivers but in controlling bluetooth.
