    Non-working Bluetooth on Asus K53SV laptop

    Hi everyone,
    I can't get Bluetooth working on my Asus K53SV laptop.
    Taking off the battery, I discovered that an Atheros AR5B195 Combo card is installed there.
    According to Google, it consists of AR9285(wlan) and AR3011(bluetooth).
    I'm using Ubuntu Natty (amd64) with kernel 2.6.38-10 installed.
    Just need Bluetooth to get my BT mouse working.
    Here's output of some commands about system and bluetooth.

    Well, lets make it easier.
    How can I make Atheros AR3011 Bluetooth chip working on Ubuntu 11.04?

    Re: Non-working Bluetooth on Asus K53SV laptop

    I've got the same laptop (ASUS K53SV) with the same combo-card.
    I got it working with the dkms-driver on Ubuntu 11.04 64bits (kernel 2.6.38-10-generic):
    1. download the driver:
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ryu2.3_all.deb
    2. install the driver:
    sudo dpkg -i ar3011-dkms_1.1ryu2.3_all.deb dell-laptop-dkms_1.4_all.deb
    3. Check the installation:
    run "dkms status" to see if there are the following info:
    ar3011-dkms, 1.1ryu2.3, 2.6.38-10-generic, x86_64: installed (or similar)

    After a reboot, the bluetooth icon should appear and indicate that bluetooth is working.

    The link to the file doesn't work anymore. Does anyone have this file or another workaround for this problem?
