Toshiba Satellite A200-PRO internal bluetooth :(

Postby brioskj on Wed Aug 05, 2009 3:30 pm

Well

Your OS is just fantastic, the bug I showed you - Linux Mint 'Gloria' doesnt recognize Toshiba Satellite laptop internal bluetooth - is the only one I noticed.
Anyway solving that problem would make my laptop a perfect machine.
I've read that the bug is due to the fact that my laptop has a 'phoenix' motherboard.
I tried to solve it using 'omnibook' and 'blueman' software, but there's nothing to do.

The bluetooth was working, but uncorrectly, only when I had two OS on my machine (Xp and Linux Mint Gloria - dual boot)...when I left Xp and the only OS installed on it was Linux Mint Gloria, it didnt recognize internal bluetooth any more.

As suggested me by mr Philip Morrell, i copy and paste below 'inxi -F' hardware report:

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Could be that XP loaded some firmware "unknown" to Linux
The thing is I don't see any bluetooth listed here, could you also run lsusb in case it's connected to USB
My Bluetooth dongle is listed in lsusb (I have yet to make my Sony Ercisson W700i to discover it :()
And also turn the lappy upside down and write down the exact model, might be possible to find something from that

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
