Since I have installed Linux Mint 8 (which is based on Ubuntu 9.10) my Bluetooth doesn't work anymore (not in Windows and not in Linux). At first it was working but then I had to change the batteries of my bluetooth mouse and then Windows 7 was able to find and install it again but it forgot the mouse after a few seconds. So I disabled the bluetooth devices and then reenabled it but from that point Windows 7 had a Code 43 error and it doesn't work. I tried it in Ubuntu (because it was working there first) but now I cannot get it to work there either. dellWirelessCtl says that bluetooth is enabled but on a mouseover on the bluetooth icon in the Gnome taskbar it says Bluetooth disabled.
Bluetooth is enabled in BIOS and even if I switch it on and off with the hardware switch of my Dell Latitude E4300 it doesn't work.
Please help me.
