My Bluetooth is on and visible, yet it does not detect any device and is not being detected by other devices.

I know there are many similar questions around, but non of the proposed solutions seems to work for me.

Some information is listed below, if anything is missing please let me know.

    You used a wrong button for formatting. Use {}. Otherwise it is unreadable.

  • Do you see any MAC address type directories in directory /var/lib/bluetooth/80:A5:89:40:CF:0A ? Each device should have one

  • Using ls I see "A0:91:69:28:93:53 cache settings". I have only connected one device (my phone).

This adapter is not supported by Linux kernel yet.

To include this adapter, you need to report a bug to Launchpad by running in terminal

ubuntu-bug linux

Follow directions in your browser to fill the bug report.

Please insclude output of

usb-devices | awk '/13d3/' RS=

to the description of the bug.

You can leave a link to the bug report and ping me in comments. I will take care of it.

This will not take much time to fix. I will build a test module and the BT will hopefully work with it. In the meantime the support will reach the stable kernels some time.

Update: This issue has been fixed in official Ubuntu kernels.
