View Full Version : [ubuntu] Bluetooth Flaky

August 11th, 2009, 11:31 AM
I just got an external Bluetooth dongle for my laptop that seems to only work every 4th boot. The computer seems to recognize it on each boot, and the Gnome bluetooth applet starts on each boot, but 3 out of every 4 times the machine name and all previously connected devices are lost. I can set the machine name, but it won't pick up any devices.

Then, each 4th boot, the name is set, prevously connected devices are listed, and everything works just fine.

I can't find anything in dmesg |boot to indicate an issue, but bluetooth doesn't show up there at all. I'm at a loss. Does anyone else have any experience with this?
