Bluetooth suddenly stopped working Mint 14

Postby funkdified » Wed Mar 06, 2013 4:51 am

Hi, I booted up my computer yesterday and found I couldn't discover new bluetooth devices in Mint.. It works fine when booting into Windows, so I know my radio didn't die.

I'm using a VIZIO CT15-A5 laptop...

Here are some outputs for you:

funkdified@vizio ~ $ sudo bluetoothd -d -n

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Not sure how it just died suddenly!

I realise this is not helping much, but I had exactly the same problem on my 14" Vizio ultrabook and the problem went away after a few days. I'm still wondering what caused this problem however...

Well, I suspect a kernel upgrade might have fixed your issue, but ... When I booted the old kernel my bt was still down.. so I'm kinda lost.
