My Inspiron 1545 bluetooth has not worked since I installed Ubuntu 10.10. Most forums suggest fiddling with the ROM (no chance that is gonna happen)or install windows (not an option). I tried 4 distros before I finally gave up on the bluetooth ever working. Has any dell user managed to get their bluetooth going.. this is the result of lsusb.
