Bluetooth devices not detected

Post by a_sush_ayinap » Tue May 22, 2018 7:36 am

Hi all!

I'm a completely new user of Mint 18.3 cinnamon. I have seen this is a quite common problem for users: the bluetooth won't detect the nearby devices while using blueberry or even blueman.

Code: Select all

dmesg | grep Blue
[   12.851693] Bluetooth: Core ver 2.22
[   12.851718] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized
[   12.851722] Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized
[   12.851724] Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized
[   12.851730] Bluetooth: SCO socket layer initialized
[   12.967482] Bluetooth: hci0: BCM: chip id 70
[   12.983440] Bluetooth: hci0: BCM43142A
[   12.983442] Bluetooth: hci0: BCM (001.001.011) build 0000
[   13.010843] Bluetooth: hci0: BCM: Patch brcm/BCM.hcd not found
[   15.021635] Bluetooth: hci0 command 0x1003 tx timeout
[   17.612213] Bluetooth: BNEP (Ethernet Emulation) ver 1.3
[   17.612215] Bluetooth: BNEP filters: protocol multicast
[   17.612218] Bluetooth: BNEP socket layer initialized
[   56.624971] Bluetooth: RFCOMM TTY layer initialized
[   56.624980] Bluetooth: RFCOMM socket layer initialized
[   56.624985] Bluetooth: RFCOMM ver 1.11
I'm stumped, don't know what to do next. Please advise.
