i have two desktop computers at home, and i recently purchased two usb bluetooth dongles of the same brand for them. after installation, i discovered that the two devices have the same address. and other devices get confused when between the two computers, so i can't use them both at once.

one pc is running windows and the other is running ubuntu. so i guess that the device address is stored on the chip like the MAC address with the LAN devices.

i know that it's possible to change a MAC address, is it possible to change the bluetooth address of the device on ubuntu?
