    Question Bluetooth does not work - Lenovo G560

    Ubuntu 12.10/Lenovo G560/dual boot Win7
    Bluetooth icon is present. I enable bluetooth but it does not work. On "bluetooth settings" the only thing I can change is the on/off icon switch. Visibility, +/- settings are all gray (inactive) and I cannot change them.
    After I did some search on the Internet I installed blueman
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install blueman
    This added another bluetooth icon on the panel featuring more options. Neither of them works. "Setup new device" for instance brings up a message that reads "No adapters found". Bluetooth works fine under Win7. I used to have Ubuntu 10.10 few years back and I remember bluetooth worked fine.
    I am a Linux newbie and any additional info requested will be given.
