    Lenovo Z570 enable bluetooth

    Hi there,

    I have a Lenovo Z570 running Ubuntu 12.04. I have no problems with WiFi as others have reported. But I can't use my bluetooth.

    How can I enable and use the build in bluetooth?

    Code:
    $ lsmod

    Hi,

    Did you manage to solve this problem? I have a Lenovo Y570 running 12.04 and I have the same problem. Wireless works fine but not bluetooth.

    lsmod gives:

    Sadly not as there was not reply and I did not follow up enywhere else by now.

    But I guess we have the same issue.

    I updated ubuntu today and my bluetooth started working properly! I suggest you make sure you have the latest updates.

    Re: Lenovo Z570 enable bluetooth

    Well, the bluetooth is giving me problems again. It has gone back to the same old behaviour of staying disabled in Settings->Bluetooth even if the hardware switch is on and the wireless is working!

    Hi, there's a workaround for this if you have a dual-boot system. Check this out.
