I have a Vizio thin+light 14" (CT14-A1) running linux mint 14 cinnamon (64 bit). All hardware is working fine except bluetooth. There is a bluetooth icon on my system tray and the status is 'on', but when I search for devices I cannot find any (tried with my bluetooth mouse and my phone).
When I boot into windows 8 on the same machine, bluetooth is working fine, so I know it's not a hardware problem.
I already tried the following:
- I installed blueman and tried searching for devices with it, but also without results.
- I upgraded my kernel from 3.5 to 3.7, still no result.
- I booted linux mint from a live USB stick, also nothing.
For completeness, here's my output of 'inxi -Fxz':
