bluetooth problem

Post by gdv87 » Wed May 27, 2015 8:06 pm

Hello,
I have a strange problem with bluetooth and LMDE(2). The very first time I've installed LMDE2 (but I had the same problem the first time I had installed LMDE1), I rebooted and the bluetooth worked flawlessly: both using blueman and blueberry. I have used my wireless headset for more than an hour without problems. However, after the second reboot, the bluethoot abruptly stopped working and now blueman does not recognize any bluethoot adapter. What is strange is that 'rfkill list' does recognize the bluethoot adapter (hci0) and says it is neither soft nor hard blocked (it becomes reversibly soft blocked when disabled by blueman or blueberry).
Can you please help me?

Update: I've discovered that this problems appears every time I reboot to Windows (I've got a dual boot configuration) and then back to LMDE2. Moreover, I can reverse the issue by uninstalling blueman and deleting all its configuration files and gconf lines and the installing it again.
Can someone help me?

Hello,

I have a similar problem. Did you resolve yours ?

My laptop (ASUS K93SV / X93S Series) with a dual boot : LMDE 2 & Windows 7.
If I boot first in Windows 7 and I activate / desactivate bluetooth, then bluetooth will be working with LMDE 2 (see attached image "Bluetooth OK")
If I boot directly in LMDE 2, bluetooth doesn't work (see attached image "Bluetooth KO").

Could someone help us, please ?
