    System Error

    Hi-I have only been using Ubuntu for a couple of weeks so am still very much a newbie! I am running Ubuntu in a partition on both my PC based laptops. On this machine when I boot up I get the warning that there is a system error. I send a report each time but the error persists. It usually then goes on to give me a dialogue box that says 'Sorry Ubuntu 12.04 has experienced an internal error' again asks me to report--which I do and tells me to enter the following into Terminal in order to generate a text report to send:

    sudo hcidump -XYt > $HOME/hci.log

    However when I do that I am told that the command can't be found. Ububtu seems to run smoothly (though I can't seem to print even though it bluetooth paired with my printer without trouble). When I click on 'details' from the first error blutoothd is top of the list. Anyone got any ideas? Elborath

    We are all newbies. Some just newer than others.

    tgalati4@Mint14-Extensa ~ $ which hcidump
    tgalati4@Mint14-Extensa ~ $ locate hcidump
    tgalati4@Mint14-Extensa ~ $ apt-cache search hcidump
    bluez-hcidump - Analyses Bluetooth HCI packets
    tgalati4@Mint14-Extensa ~ $ apt-cache policy bluez-hcidump
    Installed: (none)
    Candidate: 2.4-1
    Version table:
    2.4-1 0
    500 quantal/universe amd64 Packages

    Do you have the hci.log? Can you post it?

    It's not installed by default, so perhaps try installing it:

    Open a terminal:

    sudo apt-get install bluez-hcidump
    Look for other system errors:

    dmesg | more
    Spacebar to page forward, "q" to quit.
