Bluetooth adapter not found

I have a strange problem with my built-in bluetooth adapter. It was visible  
when I installed trisquel first time. Then disappeared after reboot. And  
bluetooth manager shows bluetooth adapter not found. It was working properly  
in ubuntu.

Can anyone help me?

I'm using trisquel 5.0 on hp probook 4230s

Re: Bluetooth adapter not found

ow we can spot fake
Coach Factory bags depends on its number. But if we buy from
Coach Outlet Online. we can not see the number. Authentic serial numbers are  
always be stamped on a piece of leather which is always inside of the bag.  
Most times, a
Louis Vuitton Outlet handbag serial number is referred to as the "Credo  
Patch". If your bag is not in this case, there is a very large chance that it  
is a fake one. Do not be alarmed if you do not find the Coach serial number  
inside the coach totes or the coach snatchels, Coach has decided not to put  
any serial numbers on these series of
Louis Vuitton Purses bags.A+T+H19.17zengyichao

Re: Bluetooth adapter not found

I'd point you to our documentation although I'm not sure it would help. Try  
adding/removing the bluetooth dongle. Use the +/- arrows from preferences.  
Bluetooth in general can be a tricky beast.

First note that I'm using trisquel 5.0 .There is no +/- arrows. Then it is  
problem with detecting bluetooth adapter itself not with any particular

Re: Bluetooth adapter not found

The chipset is actually AR30xx and it's a USB chipset not a Mini PCIe chipset  
despite being on a Mini PCIe card. The 802.11 portion is a Mini PCIe chipset.  
The Mini PCIe slot has to support the USB function to use these cards. The  
USB chipset here is not free software compatible.

Re: Bluetooth adapter not found

I've the same adapter and it does the same trick.. Trisquel usually doesn't  
recognize it and when I shutdown I can read "Deblobbed - Free firmware  
missing".. but sometimes it "works".. yesterday I also connected my laptop  
with my symbian phone..

I use Trisquel 5.5 with Linux-libre 3.3.

Re: Bluetooth adapter not found

The Atheros bluetooth chipset needs a non-free blob. It won't work without  
it. I can conceive of a few explanations for why it may have worked in  
Trisquel. For example it might be if you have booted up another distribution  
or operating system with the non-free firmware that distribution has loaded  
it already. If you reboot it may stay on the chip. If you shut down and then  
start up the system Trisquel won't be able to utilise it. The AR9285 chipset  
(wireless portion) holds the firmware on the chip and no firmware loading is  

We sell USB bluetooth cards to resolve this problem. There is a CSR chipset  
that is compatible with Trisquel and other free software distributions. Not  
all USB adapters with this chipset work though. I'm not 100% certain why.  
This is the case even where the IDs match exactly.

I've only Trisquel on my ssd, but shortly before I had tried Mint in live..  
you could be right.. :)

Do anybody have solution?

Re: Bluetooth adapter not found

If Atheros legal goes ahead and approves a request to release the firmware's  
source code for a newer Atheros wireless N chipset we will probably try and  
get them to do the same for this chipset. No idea what the time frame would  
be. My best guess is 6-12 months.

Re: Bluetooth adapter not found

One other thing. There are some reports on the web that there is a free  
software compatible mini pcie chip. It is atheros wireless with atheros  
bluetooth. This is not correct.

It appears a few people have made the mistake of believing they were  
installing a free solution from a driver when only the driver portion was  
free. The firmware portion was not. And/or in other cases they may have not  
tested the bluetooth portion and assumed it was also free. And lastly the one  
mentioned above may also have occurred in a case or two where a non-free  
operating system loaded non-free firmware to the chip and after a reboot no  
firmware in Trisquel needed to be loaded for Trisquel to use the card. In any  
case there isn't a solution to the problem yet...

I use a micro bluetooth adapter similar to

I am also able to use my phone as modem via bluetooth when needed!
After running "lsusb" command i found out it showed

Re: Bluetooth adapter not found

Yea- you definitely want a CSR chipset. Some of the CSR chips don't seem to  
work even though the IDs will be identical between chips. There must be  
slightly different versions of the same chipset being used. Even by the same
