[Bug 1482914] Re: BCM2045 Bluetooth USB Device detected but not working


Have run apport and allowed launchpad to do it's thing, bit confused as
to what it was doing, didn't look like it was successful.  Anyway,
moving on to do the kernel update to see if that fixes anything.

  BCM2045 Bluetooth USB Device detected but not working

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Previous version of Ubuntu worked with my USB Bluetooth dongle (I used
  it for Bluetooh mouse).  However 140.4 LTS onwards is detecting the
  device, but the device cannot be enabled in any Bluetooth manager.

  Have noted that this issue is common to several varieties of Bluetooth adapter, but raising this because this specific adapter did work in previous versions of ubuntu (64bit 12.10)
