I have wifi and Bluetooth modules RT3290. Wifi is working fine but Bluetooth is shown as disabled under Bluetooth settings. Can anyone help me fix this?

I use Ubuntu 16.04 (Kernel 4.8)
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic
Download zip from here on GitHub and unzip it to Desktop.
Change your directory to new unzipped directory (i.e.
Run the following commands one by one
make sudo make install sudo cp -r ~/Desktop/rtbth-dkms-master /usr/src/rtbth-3.9.3 sudo dkms install rtbth/3.9.3 sudo nano /etc/modules
rtbth at the end, then Ctrl+O and ENTER (to save the file) and Ctrl+x to close the editor
It is a supported card for bluetooth http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/catalog/component/pci/1814%3A3298/
There is a to getting it working with bluetooth here Ralink Bluetooth not working in Ubuntu 13.04
The second answer shows how to compile it yourself which you will need to do if the modules in the archive don't load because the kernel has changed since they where built
A fix that was reported to work is from a github site, to install
sudo apt-get install git dkms build-essential linux-headers-generic git clone https://github.com/f1u77y/rtbth.git cd rtbth make sudo make install
