Bluetooth doesn't work

I obtain this message:

of course i checked/unchecked everything and can't obtain response, i think the problem is a deeper lever.

Thanks!

Hi,
I have had the same problem recently after some of the latest updates. I have installed some packages related to bluetooth such as obexftp, pybluez etc and then followed this:

My experience has been that bluetooth works but the service isn't started on boot. I did this:

Code: Select all

/etc/init.d bluetooth start
rc-config add bluetooth

Hi,
I'd like to say that I had to sort this issue again and that command from the thread most likely solved my problem again.

Code: Select all

bluetoothd -u
