Bluetooth seems to suddenly not be working in th recent Mint (& Ubuntu) releases on my Dell, while stile working on previous versions (Mint 11) on the same machine (so it is not hardware).
I've been using Mint 11 for a long time. Aftera HDD semi-crash and forced reinstall, I tried Ubuntu 12.10 briefly. Bluetooth problem. Dumped it. The installed amd am currently using Mint 14.1 Cinnamon 32-bit -- exactlythe same problem.
The device is found and pairs easily enough. It is in trying to browse it that a 'Gio.DBusError' error occurs. Using Blueman, the error: "Failed to open "obex://[....]/" "Connection refused" appears.
I need it to get pics off my phone regularly. I've managed to send a file *to* the phone, but sending *from* the phone to the PC the operation fails.
Could this be protocol related? Kernel related?
lsusb gives me:
Bus 003 Device 006: ID 0a5c:4500 Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub (part of BCM2046 Bluetooth)
Bus 003 Device 007: ID 413c:8126 Dell Computer Corp. Wireless 355 Bluetooth
I don't know what to run in the terminal for uselful output.
