I have attempted to install an Insignia NS-BTHDST Headset and with no luck so far. I am on an HP Pavilian dv2000 laptop (AMD64) with Hardy Heron.

lsusb shows the following, where Bus

Bus 002 Device 011: ID 0a5c:4503 Broadcom Corp.
Bus 002 Device 010: ID 0a5c:4502 Broadcom Corp.
Bus 002 Device 009: ID 0a5c:4500 Broadcom Corp.
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0461:4d03 Primax Electronics, Ltd Kensington Mouse-in-a-box
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0c45:62c0 Microdia
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

Where Bus 002 Device 011,010, and 009 are all Bluetooth USB device.

However, if I run hciconfig or hcitool, it shows nothing.

~# hciconfig scan
Can't get device info: No such device

:~# hcitool dev
Devices:

Any ideas? I would really like to get this working.

My Belkin adapter wouldn't work either. I found the fix here:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Belkin_F8T012xx1_USB_Adapter


Works with Ubuntu 7.04 and 7.10 if you add "blacklist pegasus" in the file "/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist" and restart the system.

Maybe it could work for you as well?

Gave it a shot but no luck - thanks though.

Anyone have any ideas?

Looking a dmesg when I plug in the USB adapter, it appears that the device is being interpreted as HID instead of HCI...

I'm having a similar problem, I can find the USB dongle in termial, the GUI version that comes with Ubuntu 8.10 register that there is a Bluetooth device but doesn't seem to search with it, when ever I start the Wizard my bluetooth gets disconnected.

however it looks like Ubuntu doesn't give the bluetooth adapter a name



icebreaker@iceblock:~$ hciconfig -a

I have been able to use hciconfig and hcitool to set a name and even search for devices and find them but the only connect for a second with
hcitool cc XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
then the connection is lost and I have to connect again (like it's kicking me because of no linking, that's my guess anyway)

after
icebreaker@iceblock:~$ sudo hciconfig hci0 name NewBluetooth

with name added I can search



icebreaker@iceblock:~$ sudo hcitool scan

without sudo, hcitool can't retrive name of the bluetooth devices.



icebreaker@iceblock:~$ sudo hcitool inq

That's as far as I come, after that there isn't much more I can do, connecting etc doesn't work as stated =/

I'm having the same problems...

I have pegasus blacklisted and there is no change. I have also tried using

sudo hciconfig -a
instead of

hciconfig -a
and no change.

When I tried changing the name

paraplegicpanda@hacktopix:~$ sudo hciconfig hci0 name topiXbt
[sudo] password for paraplegicpanda:
Can't change local name on hci0: Connection timed out (110)

Scanning times out as well. Any more suggestions?
