http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey all - I don't think I've tried to use Bluetooth under Ubuntu yet and wanted to today. No joy. Bluetooth is enabled in bios, its indicator light near the keyboard is on and toggles with the keyboard hotkey, but Ununtu "Bluetooth Preferences" just tells me "Bluetooth is disabled" and hitting the cooresponding "Turn On Bluetooth" button doesn't do much of anything. Here's some output relevant commands I found in other threads: Code: cbraddock:/home/cbraddock:cat /var/log/dmesg | grep Blue* [    0.280010] Bluetooth: Core ver 2.15 [    0.280024] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized [    0.280024] Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized [    0.998590] Bluetooth: L2CAP ver 2.13 [    0.998591] Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized [    0.998594] Bluetooth: SCO (Voice Link) ver 0.6 [    0.998596] Bluetooth: SCO socket layer initialized [    0.998642] Bluetooth: RFCOMM TTY layer initialized [    0.998646] Bluetooth: RFCOMM socket layer initialized [    0.998648] Bluetooth: RFCOMM ver 1.11 [  11.486952] Bluetooth: Generic Bluetooth USB driver ver 0.5 [  11.765678] Bluetooth: BNEP (Ethernet Emulation) ver 1.3 [  11.765681] Bluetooth: BNEP filters: protocol multicast cbraddock:/home/cbraddock:hcitool dev Devices: cbraddock:/home/cbraddock:hciconfig hci0:    Type: USB     BD Address: 00:00:00:00:00:00 ACL MTU: 0:0 SCO MTU: 0:0     DOWN     RX bytes:12 acl:0 sco:0 events:2 errors:0     TX bytes:6 acl:0 sco:0 commands:2 errors:0 cbraddock:/home/cbraddock:sudo lsusb -v | grep Blue Bus 001 Device 023: ID 413c:8103 Dell Computer Corp.
