    Smile 9.10 karmic- cant install/detect USB Bluetooth Dongle

    Hi Ive got tow Ubuntu versions running and neither is able to detect the Bluetooth dongle- bought another and neither is able to detect and install the drivers: Ive got karmic and hardy distro's running
    Tried purchasing another dongle- still no go.
    Only usb device it picks up is the webcam.

    Heres some data
    dad@dad-desktop:~$ lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

    Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    dad@dad-desktop:~$

    here is a report from dmesg report when unplugging and replugging:

    [ 2494.860061] usb 4-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 15
    [ 2494.980029] usb 4-1: device descriptor read/64, error -71
    [ 2495.204035] usb 4-1: device descriptor read/64, error -71

    [ 2496.356046] hub 4-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 1

    Any help apprecited or steps to figure out whats going on. Ive got both systems up to date and have installed bluetooth software but neither detects the adapter.

    By the way Fedora installs it no problems...

    Thanks for any suggestions..

    Re: 9.10 karmic- cant install/detect USB Bluetooth Dongle

    Errors like that are related to the USB hardware in the computer or the USB core driver in Linux, not the bluetoothdriver itself.

    Try this:

    Code:
    sudo echo -1 >/sys/module/usbcore/parameters/autosuspend
    In a terminal and retry. Or maybe http://http://www.mepis.org/node/5860 could help.

    Sorry, that would be
    sudo sh -c "echo -1 >/sys/module/usbcore/parameters/autosuspend"
