    when I click on bluetooth icon on left upper corner it says Buletooth disabled
    start bluetooth manager and click the turn on Bluetooth button
    if still no work check that the wireless switch is on
    and also check in BIOS if Bluetooth is enabled

    It doesn't work for me. From the other side, if I plug in external USB BT adapter, then the full BT menu on the BT icon appears and things start to work. Thus, the problem comes from the lack of support of internal BT adapter in the ubuntu 11.10

    Suddenly the Bluetooth tray app is reporting that my Bluetooth is on. I already paired my android device with my laptop, but I'm still unable to send files from my phone to my laptop.

    I can see my laptop in the sharing menu but sending any file ends up with Connection failure on my phone.

    Any ideas?
