Re: Bluetooth randomly fails

Many thanks for that. I was hoping that the BT issues had been solved over time - I recall a couple of years ago BT support/functionality was very poor and it's the main reason I didn't leave Windows. Certainly, BT is much improved over what it once was. Right now I have no problems with BT when it'...

Re: Bluetooth randomly fails

[quote="JeremyB"]

Code: Select all

cat /sys/module/ath9k/parameters/btcoex_enable
If it returns 0

Code: Select all

sudo modprobe -rv ath9k
all wireless will stop after this

Code: Select all

sudo modprobe ath9k btcoex_enable=1
Wireless should work again, hopefully it allows bluetooth also.

Sadly, BT remained dead.

Bluetooth randomly fails

Hi all, my fresh install of Mint17 Cinnamon on my Asus N750Jv laptop is frstrating me, with random fails of the bluetooth. Also on boot, around 3 times out of 4 BT fails to be active. When I open the BT settings it tells me BT is disabled. I'd really like it is BT could be made to work consistently....

Re: Speakers not working on installed Mint 17

Graphics cards that have HDMI out identify a 2nd sound card in the system since HDMI is capable of handling audio as well as video. So the graphics card does have a sound processor on it for that purpose. :) Thanks for that - I didn't know that was the case. PulseAudio didn't do much - I can't sele...

Re: Speakers not working on installed Mint 17

Many thanks for thetip - I'l certainly look into it - installed it while I was writing this.

Booted my machine into Mint this morning and speakers are producing sound. Not sure why my laptop should have two sound chips, but it certainly seems to.

Re: Dual Boot Win 8.1.Mint

Many thanks for the advice. I'll look into trying it out over the next couple of days. Regardless of results, I'll report back. Well, that didn't work quite as well as I would have liked. I manually created partitions on what used to be drive D, using all the space, leaving Windows on C. I got part...

Re: Bluetooth devices not being detected, Hp ProBook

Hi veggen, et al.

Thanks for the reply. Sounds like BT is a real disaster. With a BT mouse and wanting to use a BT headset, this is a deal-breaker.

I dearly want to dual-boot my machine, so I'll move on.

I wish you all the best.
