    Did you blacklist the native driver rt2800pci?

    Code:
    echo "blacklist rt2800pci" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Reboot. Checked the BIOS settings?!

    Which driver version did you try? Was it 2.6.0.0?

    Here is a bluetooth driver:

    yeah i have installed 2.6.0.0

    i used sudo make to compile

    that went fine

    but sudo make install didn't work
    Code:
    mohit@mohit-HP-Pavilion-g6-Notebook-PC:~/Downloads/rtbth_v3.9.3/rtbth_v3.9.3$ sudo make install
    make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.

    Make a script out of it:

    Code:
    gksu gedit ~/bluetooth.sh
    Insert:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    insmod rtbth.ko
    mknod /dev/rtbth c 192 0
    ./path/to/the/file/rtbt.bin
    
    exit 0
    Executable flag:
    Code:
    sudo chmod +x bluetooth.sh
    And start it at boot-up by adding
    Code:
    sh /home/YourName/bluetooth.sh
    before "exit 0" in the /etc/rc.local
    Do not remove the folders, or, adjust the paths.
