Re: Mint not recognizing HP laptop bluetooth

ok, this is freaky - i pulled out the pau07, plugged it back in and wifi instantly came alive. not a clue why, but i'm not complaining ... maybe a flaky dongle, i'll see.

much obliged for your time and assistance, JeremyB!

Re: Mint not recognizing HP laptop bluetooth

Well the drivers are loaded for the USB wifi, the bluetooth likely doesn't have firmware yet for it to work and the realtek bluetooth module likely needs an update where to get such drivers and firmware that are compatible with mint? As far as I know the firmware and drivers don't exist yet for tha...

Mint not recognizing HP laptop bluetooth

New HP Core I5 laptop came with Win10, loaded Mint 18.3 and Bluetooth not recognized. Is this the continuing issue with HP wifi hardware and Mint, and if so is there a work-around or a suggested Mint compatible wifi USB dongle? FWIW, I popped in a Panda PAU07 wifi dongle that Mint doesn't recognize.
