I have a "media stuff" computer connected to a TV that I use to play films, music and for gaming.

Lately I wanted to use either or both my Wii and PS3 joysticks via the bluetooth provided by the motherboard. At first my PC seemed to be able to detect the PS3 joysticks but not pair them. I was even able to pair a PS3 joystick and see the various actions I triggered, but the device would become unpaired when I closed the program.

I tried various ideas from how-tos here and there. The system finally ended up with the Bluetooth not able to work properly...

Now when I start a new session the Bluetooth icon near the hour is not showing. I can start the Bluetooth app but no devices are detected. I may have messed with drivers while following a modprobe instruction in the howtos.

sudo lspci | grep -i blue is not showing anything. Neither is lsusb

The motherboard is a GIGABYTE GA-Z87N-WIFI and bluetooth once worked.
I use Ubuntu 16.04.

How can I solve this?

A bit of output here:

  • Please edit your question and add output of lspci -knn | grep Net -A3; lsusb terminal command. – Pilot6 Sep 3 '17 at 11:03
  • I just updated the question as requested, thanks – Louis-Martin Carrière Sep 3 '17 at 11:57
  • Try to boot with another kernel using grub. It looks something is broken in the kernel. But I am using this adapter and see no problems. – Pilot6 Sep 3 '17 at 11:57
  • What is the kernel version? – Pilot6 Sep 3 '17 at 11:58
  • once I boot with the other kernel (I will take a previous version), can you direct me to some reliable instructions on how to remove the deffective kernel and add it back from repository, I want to make it worse... – Louis-Martin Carrière Sep 3 '17 at 12:00

TL;DR: Turn off, remove power supply, get a coffee and reboot.

I had a similar problem where my GF plugged her phone into the USB cable that I have plugged into my PC for data transfers. All of the sudden my BT headset stopped working and all bluetooth activity was stopped. I searched through the kernel log and found similar logs as you

Then I found this post which told me to just not reboot but turn off, disconnect power, let the condensators clear out and then reconnect. Did that, and boom:

I am running a

device to be Hackintosh compatible but actually switched to Debian all the way.

I had exactly same issue. Then, I did kernel update and old kernel grub boot and on...everything. all didn't work.

But pascalwhoop answer is perfectly working.

Just turn off by

sudo shutdown -h now

and unplug all the cable like power, Monitor HDMI, USB, UTP Cat5.e everything. And Plug it and boot your system.

And it works now fantastically.

I made answer here due to comment is not allowed with lack of SOF reputation :)
