Re: Wifi on HP Notebook will not switch on

Well, Pjotr, that fixed it but not for the script contained in the link but for reminding me that I should have rebooted my computer after running JeremyB's command. A very schoolboy error indeed. :oops: :oops: :oops:

Many thanks,

[SOLVED] Wifi on HP Notebook will not switch on

Hi all, I'm still a Linux novice and, of course, I have a problem I need help with. It's a wifi problem again and the same as last time, 2 years ago, insomuch as when I open the Network Manager and click on the 'Wireless' switch it will not switch on and stay on. Very briefly it shows the SSID and t...

Re: LM18.1 - Bluetooth on HP Notebook does not detect devices

Thanks skomo. That worked for me too. And thanks for your BCM.hcp file too; it would have taken me ages to compile that.

Re: LM18.1 - Bluetooth on HP Notebook does not detect devices

No change after the last instructions you asked me to try, JeremyB. But it appears that I'm now in a worse state than when I started, lol. Bluetooth still doesn't work and thinks my computer belongs to 'Bastien' and it is no longer looking for devices (it's stalled/frozen). Who/what is this 'Bastien...

Re: LM18.1 - Bluetooth on HP Notebook does not detect devices

Still the same. Not detecting devices, 'Bastien's Computer'(!!!???) and the rotating arrow graphic is stalled. Output of 'echo -e "power on\n scan on\n quit" |bluetoothctl' is: [bluetooth]# power on No default controller available [bluetooth]# scan on No default controller available [bluetooth]# quit

Re: LM18.1 - Bluetooth on HP Notebook does not detect devices

Hi Jeremy, I ran: wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/olqnqevf698lddo/fw-0a5c_216d.hcd sudo cp fw-0a5c_216d.hcd /lib/firmware/brcm/BCM.hcd then rebooted and bluetooth is still not working. It has changed, however, in as much as it now claims my computer will be visible as 'Bastian's computer' and the 'se...

Re: LM18.1 - Bluetooth on HP Notebook does not detect devices

Hello JeremyB, I ran those instructions again and rebooted and Bluetooth still doesn't find any devices. I've run the 'dmesg' command and the output now is: [ 0.313474] [Firmware Bug]: ACPI: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query ignored [ 0.342405] [Firmware Bug]: ACPI: No _BQC method, cannot determine initial bri...

Re: LM18.1 - Bluetooth on HP Notebook does not detect devices

Hi JeremyB. Ran your commands in a terminal window (cut and paste) but there's been no change, I'm afraid.

[SOLVED] LM18.1 - Bluetooth on HP Notebook does not detect devices

Hi all, I'm still new to Linux and I have another problem. Checking out other posts it appears to be a common problem, from what I can see, but nothing I've read and tried so far has worked. It is, simply, that Bluetooth does not detect any devices; it just sits there searching. Here's some backgrou...

Re: LM18.1 - Wifi on HP Notepad will not switch on

Wow, thanks, after days of fiddling around that's it sorted! I'd noticed the Acer-wireless entry under the rfkill heading and that it was soft blocked and wondered if there was a problem in this area but as there was another wireless entry, phy0; wireless, that wasn't soft blocked that maybe there w...
