[Bug 453885] Re: bluetooth is nonfunctional


With Trusty : same problem. Is there someone who could help us to have
mouse and keyboard working without downgrading to very old package
version, and that trick won't be possible in Trusty and later...

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: bluez

  Since my upgrade to kubuntu karmic my USB dongle stopped working, but
  it still works in my other jaunty machine and in Windows XP.

  Adapter model is Broadcom BCM2035

  Bus 003 Device 005: ID 0c10:0000

  1) If i open bluetooth adapter settings in either kbluetooth, bluez-gnome or gnome-bluetooth, it says adapter is in hidden mode. If i change it to discovered, save settings, then open configuration dialog again, it still says that adapter is in hidden mode.
  2) When i scan for bluetooth devices in kbluetooth, bluez-gnome, gnome-bluetooth or using command hcitool scan
  it cannot find any device. When i try to connect to already known device connection also fails
  3)Same when i try to discover karmic machine or connect to it from my mobile or PDA.
  3) Also in adapter config dialog adapter name is set to "Broadcom BCM2035", whereas in jaunty it was $hostname-1
