Messed up. Got annoyed with having to turn off the bluetooth manager every time I booted up so I uninstalled it without realising that I do actually use bluetooth connectivity quite a lot.

What is the name of the original software that comes preinstalled with the OS? I want it back!!!

it should be gnome-bluetooth, but you may want to try blueman which IMHO is way better.

On 11.04, this is the default bluetooth app.

Installed both of them. The bluetooth manager is telling me that I don't have any bluetooth adapters and the blueman thing opens a console which is completely greyed out. So it looks like I have managed to uninstall the drivers?

Found this page:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Asus_N53

which tells me to download this:

compat-wireless-2011-05-15.tar.bz2 (http://wireless.kernel.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/compat-wireless-2011-05-15.tar.bz2)

Which I have now done. I've unpacked it, but I have absolutely no idea what to do next? Can anybody help?

Still no ideas as to why my (inbuilt, not usb) bluetooth adapter isn't being picked up? Or how to do the fix in the link above?

Fixed it.
