Issue with Bluetooth on laptop

Postby novren on Wed Apr 30, 2014 8:28 am

Hi all, I'm new, I'd never bothered registering because I was sort of able to fix stuff on my own. But this time I already dun rainbows up once, and because I don't want to reinstall again, I'm posting my problem.

So, I've got this laptop (Packard Bell EasyNoteTE69KB) in which I've got W7 (installed by myself after wiping w8.1) and Linux Mint 16 XFCE.

First things first:

Since Mint 16 KDE wouldn't detect my wireless and ethernet, I installed Mint 16 XFCE and installed KDE from inside. I did this once, it worked, sort of, and even got it to operate Bluetooth (can't find out how anymore, though), and finally yesterday for whatever reason it suddenly shut down while updating. On boot, there was no Linux option in GRUB, so I run Grub-rescue, which did make it reappear but only working in safe-mode, and because I skimmed instead of reading I kind of removed KDE. Luckily, my /home partition is separated, so I reinstalled LM16 XFCE again, keeping /home, and installed KDE from it. Back to square 1.

OpenGL will only work with the propietary AMD driver (Radeon HD 8280). So it's a must to keep that installed.

So, trying to make Bluetooth work, I upgraded the kernel. There was a problem now: Bluetooth could have worked (it didn't but I could have fixed it easily, because hcitool dev throwed a result), but AMD driver would not install. So kernel downgrade again.

Now I have installed the AMD driver, and it works just fine as it should, but Bluetooth doesn't even show up in Bluedevil (which is, theoretically, correctly installed, alongside with bluez and their dependencies -please provide me with a way to check that if you are not sure they are). When entering through System Settings → Bluetooth, the message displayed is "No bluetooth adapters have been found".

Already tried blueman, no luck. Thinking it's a driver issue, but I don't know how to make Linux to look for hardware and its software.

So, some outputs.

Forgot to say: the main reason for me to upgrade the kernel was because I was unable to shut down linux because it froze after shutting down every process and I had read that upgrading the kernel fixed it.

Re: Issue with Bluetooth on laptop

Postby novren on Wed Apr 30, 2014 1:03 pm

And yet something else: the last thing I tried, right before opening this thread, was what is suggested at this page. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2103062

Basically, this code:

Code: Select all
wget http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless-3-stable/v3.6/compat-wireless-3.6.6-1-snpc.tar.bz2
tar xvf compat*
cd compat-wireless-3.6.6-1-snpc
sudo su
./scripts/driver-select ath9k
make
make install
modprobe ath9k
exit


But, when I typed "make" in Konsole, it gave me this:

Code: Select all

I googled and, apparently, this error might mean one of two things: either I didn't have permissions (which I did have, by typing sudo su) or that the package was broken somewhere. I couldn't find where. Of course, "make install" wouldn't work either.

Edit: I ran make clean and then make, but to no avail. Still error 2.


And on an unrelated topic, but since it may need a kernel upgrade I believe it to be convenient for me to write it here: is there a fix for the shutdown hang besides upgrading the kernel?

This is worth a try since you have the correct hardware and ath9k

What do I do? Do I just run

Code: Select all
modprobe ath9k btcoex_enable=1


or what?

BTW, in case I didn't make it clear, wi-fi works perfectly fine. I don't want to screw it up, and that looks like a wi-fi fix. If it isn't, please point me out on what to do next. Thank you for your attention!! :mrgreen:

The wifi and bluetooth are on the same chip on the atheros chipset you have

I have the same on my Lenovo laptop and used the same command in terminal, it did actually allow me to turn on the bluetooth but I haven't tried anything with it yet since it is quicker for me to connect my phone with USB to transfer files

Well, bummer. Tried out the code, nothing happened. Restarted bluetooth and still, nothing happened. Should I reboot?

And yeah, it is faster for me too, but what I want the most is to be able to connect my bluetooth headset to the computer. Last time I was able to do so, so I'm absolutely positive I can reproduce the result again.

Code: Select all
rfkill list all


I don't know if this will show any bt hardware or not. I will be home and have my pc to look at in a couple hours, might be able to find the other commands I used in terminal history file.

Rebooting might do something

I had already tried that. Bluetooth doesn't even seem to exist. Anyway, here it is.

So, trying to diagnose my own problem: as far as I can tell, my laptop doesn't know that there's a bluetooth card (well, part of the wireless card), or maybe it does but I don't know how to tell him to install missing drivers. In addition, I cannot make the atheros compat-wireless instalation, therefore I am stuck.

Re: Issue with Bluetooth on laptop

Postby novren on Thu May 01, 2014 1:41 pm

Bump. I'll add a summary of what's happening.

1rst: computer stuck at shutdown (when every process is dead, the LM logo just stays there forever). It is solved by a kernel upgrade, which brings us to the 2nd step.

2nd: With the kernel upgrade, OpenGL still doesn't work. Previously I'd just install the AMD propietary driver. Now it won't even install. Bluetooth problem wasn''t solved either. So, kernel downgrade.

3rd: Now, with the older kernel, opengl works just fine with the AMD propietary driver, but no bluetooth and screen stuck at shutdown.



Now I'll use ndiswrapper to try and install a Windows wireless driver for the bluetooth. I had already done that but to no avail.

Edit: OK, weird. Installed a driver, and hardware is present (meaning it's recognized by linux, right?) but hcitool dev still shows only "Devices:".

Re: Issue with Bluetooth on laptop

What kernels have you tried other than 3.11 which I believe in standard for LM16? I have Ubuntu 14.04 as a dual boot and was able to send a file from PC to phone, so there may be hope for the 3.13 kernel and LM17

I've tried 3.14 I believe, but when I did I wasn't able to install the amd proprietary driver. I'll try with 3.13.

I'm gonna try with a kernel upgrade again now, only that with a different one.

Still, I'm thinking that the computer doesn't even know that there is a Bluetooth card. How can I force the computer to check for devices?

I've upgraded the kernel

uname -a

Code: Select all
Linux novren-linux-ente69kb 3.13.0-031300-generic #201401192235 SMP Mon Jan 20 03:36:48 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


Maybe it's just my imagination but the computer is running smoother.

Still, no luck. Bluedevil shows "Bluetooth is Off" when hovering over it and "No adapters found" when clicking it.

hcitool dev

Code: Select all
Devices:


As for the graphics, the propietary driver is still up and working. Shutdown works fine too. The only issue: bluetooth. I think that the computer doesn't even know there's a BT card.

I wonder if I don't have conflicting programs on mine, I have got pretty far with kernel 3.14.2 and it works perfectly in Ubuntu. One thing I noticed is that your lsmod doesn't show btusb but it may just have been because it unloaded the module when it couldn't detect the hardware

OK, so I reinstalled LM16 with XFCE and re-added KDE. Back to square one, once again.

This time, hcitool dev shows a device:

I think this is great news. The computer recognizes a bluetooth card. I just need it to find stuff.

Now, as it used to do, when typing "hcitool scan" it throws a "Scanning..." which lasts for about half a minute and finds nothing.

Re: Issue with Bluetooth on laptop

Via ndiswrapper, I've installed ath9k, from the file from the Windows DriverStore: I copied netathrx.inf and athrx.sys to my home folder and from then did a ndiswrapper -i netathrx.inf.

It installed correctly (from the GUI it has given me hell more than once, but I think it was because I didn't usually copy the .sys file), and I restarted bluetooth but nope, still not finding anything. Rebooting did not do any goood either. At least, with the kernel upgrade
