The first time i installed LMDE , my bluetooth works fine,bluetooth hotkey (laptop ) works fine , LMDE can detect it and i can use it.
The problem is , a week ago , i have made some sort of change through start up application and services , i have been disabling bluetooth start up application and services for bluetooth . And now , after enabling it again (via service and startup application) , after restart the bluetooth hotkey are pointing to brightness hotkey . bluetooth still not working .And , after doing some googling , i have done hcitool dev which is empty .
This is the data that might be usefull
$ sudo lsmod | grep bluetooth
bluetooth 41827 6 rfcomm,sco,bnep,l2cap
rfkill 13044 5 bluetooth,cfg80211,acer_wmi
$ sudo lsmod | grep hci
sdhci_pci 5581 0
sdhci 13966 1 sdhci_pci
ahci 32374 1
firewire_ohci 19676 0
firewire_core 36848 1 firewire_ohci
mmc_core 45686 1 sdhci
led_class 2433 4 iwl3945,iwlcore,acer_wmi,sdhci
libata 133632 3 ata_generic,ata_piix,ahci
uhci_hcd 18521 0
ehci_hcd 32081 0
usbcore 122386 7 sierra,usbserial,usbhid,usb_storage,uhci_hcd,ehci_hcd
looks like the module are loaded right, hardware are detected ,but still i cant use it .
when doing bluetooth-applet , it say that applet are already running (but i can't see it )
doing 'hcitool dev ' give me empty , sudo hciconfig give me empty result too.
anybody know how to fix this ? thank you .
