[Bug 1503733] Re: BCM43142 Bluetooth not working on Lenovo Z50-70


I'm really sorry for this long, long delay. I have upgraded to Ubuntu
15.10 in the meanwhile, and the bug still persists. What should I do?
Will the output of the above commands still be useful?

Anyway, posting first. Talking later. You've waited enough already!

Thank you!
