Problems with new updates - Bluetooth doesnt work

Postby gocool » Thu Sep 12, 2013 20:18

Hi,

Just a day or two back there was a huge list of updates which was pushed.

I updated it using

Code: Select all
equo update && equo upgrade --ask


There were around 200+ updates. And after that my bluetooth just doesnt work anymore. I use KDE.
Let me correct myself, I havent checked before if it used to work or not, but I thought of checking it either way. So it may not be becaz of the update.

My XOrg config file is here

My system and hwinfo is here

My enabled services and the runlevels is here

My dmesg is here

My rc.log is here

My /var/log/messages is here

My KDM log is here

Is this being looked at? Is it just me?

My machine is current.

Let me know what other info you need from me and I'll be more than glad to provide you with it.

This issue and your Shutdown/reboot issues happened to me as well under KDE. First, I had to
switch to systemd

Then, enable bluetooth on startup
Code: Select all
su
systemctl enable bluetooth.service


If you needed to start bluetooth under systemd do
Code: Select all
su
bluetoothd start

I am in systemd

Code: Select all
[email protected] ~ $ eselect init list
Available init implementations:
  [1]   systemd *
  [2]   sysvinit


And I tried to do what you have suggested

Code: Select all
sabayon user # systemctl enable bluetooth.service
ln -s '/usr/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service' '/etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.bluez.service'
ln -s '/usr/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service' '/etc/systemd/system/bluetooth.target.wants/bluetooth.service'
sabayon user # bluetoothd start


But in the Systems Settings under bluetooth it says -
Code: Select all
No Bluetooth adapters have been found

Hallo gocool.
Today I have installed KDE 4.11.1 on my notebook. There was no bluetooth, not even in system settings.
But lsmod showed me, some bluetooth modules were loaded.
So I entered as root:
Code: Select all
bluetoothd
systemctl enable bluetooth

and rebooted. Still no Bluetooth symbol in my taskbar. So, then I had a look at Rigo and checked for 'bluetooth' and I've found, that bluedevil was NOT installed (necessary for KDE).
And then, after installing bluedevil, the bluetooth symbol was added in my taskbar again.
Then I've opened bluetooth settings, activated (hidden) bluetooth adaptor in this window.
I can add phones and tablets now. I've added my phone, which was paired.
And finally, I've made a test to send and receive files. Working fine, same before.
This may not really match with your situation, but I assume a correlation between my problem and yours.

run an

equo deptest

When updating it is good practice to

equo update
equo install entropy equo
equo upgrade
equo deptest

That will make sure you have the latest package manager before doing upgrades, the deptest will make sure nothing got left out after doing the upgrade. So please try that and see what happens.

Hallo Gocool.
Could you pls. provide some information for us?
As there are (as root):
Code: Select all
uname -r

lsmod|grep blue

systemctl --show|grep bluetooth

So, I assume, you have KDE 4.11.1 now. Did you have KDE 411.(0?) already at last (I mean before upgrading your system), when bluetooth still worked?

Here it is...

Code: Select all
sabayon user # uname -r
3.7.0-sabayon


Code: Select all
sabayon user # lsmod | grep blue
bluetooth             181646  10 bnep,rfcomm


Code: Select all
sabayon user # systemctl --show|grep bluetooth
bluetooth.service           loaded active running   Bluetooth service


Actually I have never used bluetooth, but I used to see the bluetooth light turned on in my laptop, now nothing.

Yes my KDE version is 4.11

Thank you again for taking interest in my issue.

Ok, thanks for info.
When I compare with lsmod for my system, I get this:
Code: Select all
[email protected]:lsmod|grep blue
bluetooth             242000  25 bnep,ath3k,btusb,rfcomm

Then, I assume, that at least your hardware driver module (in my case ath3k) is not loaded.
And of course, btusb is not loaded also.
Exactly, in your 'lsusb' output, I don't see any bluetooth device:
Code: Select all
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 046d:c51b Logitech, Inc. V220 Cordless Optical Mouse for Notebooks
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 046d:09b0 Logitech, Inc. Acer OrbiCam
Bus 005 Device 004: ID 0bc2:5033 Seagate RSS LLC
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

When no Bluetooth hardware is detected, how it can work? My bluetooth hardware is recognized as:
Code: Select all
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0489:e04e Foxconn / Hon Hai
I have checked for in Google.
So, you say, your bt indicator (the light) is off now. But it should be possible to activate it again, and with activated one, then bt hardware should be recognized and, as all I know, if implemented in Kernel, loaded as module.
So, pls. try to activate your bt by pressing a special button on your laptop, or maybe a combination of keys on your keyboard, maybe in combination Function key+another key. Watch your indicator light.
I have an Acer V3-571G, where my bluetooth is in combination on one chip with wireless. I have 3 status:
1. Off
2. Wireless On + Bluetooth Off
3. Wireless On + Bluetooth On
My keyboard combination is Fn+ F3, the symbol for Wireless. As I said, try to find your button, your keys.
And then do an:
Code: Select all
lsusb
again.
Check if there is an additional USB device and let us know. And if so, then do an:
Code: Select all
lsmod|grep blue
again.
Exactly, I really would like to know, why you still have Kernel 3.7. This is no long term Kernel. I would really recommend you to install Kernel 3.10. For 3.11 I don't have enough experience with. But this is btw only.

Good night.

Re: Problems with new updates - Bluetooth doesnt work

Thank you linuxfluesterer for a detailed explanation.

I have an acer Aspire 5610 laptop.

I am enclosing an image of my bluetooth switch. I dont know what this switch is called, you have to push it to the left and release it to turn it on and you do the same to turn it off too (sort of a toggle switch, but there is a different name to it which I am not recollecting).

Image

I tried to turn it on (slide it to the left and release it once) and checked the lsusb. This is what I get

Code: Select all
sabayon user # lsusb
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 046d:c51b Logitech, Inc. V220 Cordless Optical Mouse for Notebooks
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 046d:09b0 Logitech, Inc. Acer OrbiCam
Bus 005 Device 004: ID 0bc2:5033 Seagate RSS LLC
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub


I then did it again , but still the same result.

And after sliding the switch, this is what my dmesg says

Code: Select all

When I try to do the same thing with my wireless slide switch (just to see what it will come up with in the dmesg), this is what it gives
