In the "Bluetooth" application, I can't enable Bluetooth. It is disabled and I can't move the switch.

I've added rfkill unblock bluetooth to /etc/rc.local and restarted the computer.

I've checked rfkill list and bluetooth isn't showing up.

Running lsmod | grep blue shows:

bluetooth             520192  5 bnep

not sure what this means.

Running bluetoothd shows this:

D-Bus setup failed: Connection ":1.171" is not allowed to own the service "org.bluez" due to security policies in the configuration file

On Ubuntu 16.04 - running hwinfo shows this:

  bluetooth 520192 5 bnep, Live 0x0000000000000000

Furthermore I dont' see any bluetooth indicator in the status bar.
