    Bluetooth need windows? Why?

    Does a built in Bluetooth adapter need to be turned on to work? what i mean is are there commands that need to be sent to turn on the adapter?

    my bluetooh will not work unless i boot in to windows first then in to ubuntu. if i go right in to ubuntu nothing bluetooth will show up.

    if some one can help me that would be wonderfull

    Bluetooth Adaptor not seen on HP Compaq 6510b

    I have a similar problem.

    I am running Ubuntu 9.04 on an HP Compaq 6510b. Previously installed with Vista. The Laptop has a built in bluetooth adaptor.

    Everything works with the exception of Bluetooth. Absolutely no BT adaptor is recognised.

    How do I switch on BT adaptor at start up?

    How do I get the bloody thing to even see my BT adaptor?

    Been looking everywhere and can find no solutions.

    BT services is switched on for start up.

    Please help.
