Bluetooth devices not being detected, Hp ProBook

Postby Metal Mick on Fri Oct 12, 2012 1:26 am

HI all,

new to Mint, but been dabbling with Ubuntu for several years, and currently have Mint 13 64-bit (Cinnamon) freshly installed from within Win 7.

I have a Core i5 HP Probook 4730s, and I cannot get devices detected by the internal BT service - not my mouse, phone, or BT headset.

I plugged-in my cheap BT dongle and the mouse was immediately detected and worked. I have installed Blueman, and found no improvement.

Can someone suggest a means of rectifying the situation?

Regards,

Michael P

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi veggen, et al.

Thanks for the reply. Sounds like BT is a real disaster. With a BT mouse and wanting to use a BT headset, this is a deal-breaker.

I dearly want to dual-boot my machine, so I'll move on.

I wish you all the best.
