    Re: bluetooth not recognized after upgrade to 14.04

    For those who have this problem, i solved it with those commands:

    sudo modprobe -v ath3k
    sudo modprobe -v btusb
    sudo echo 0930 0219 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/ath3k/new_id
    sudo echo 0930 0219 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/btusb/new_id

    Hope that this could help you guys!

    Great !!!!


    I spent over a pair of days (and nights) with no success trying to make working the integrated Bluetooth on my Toshiba Saltellite L50d-B-12W when I found this post.
    Thank you ccerrillo this solution is working fine on my laptop.


    In my case "lsusb" told me the device is 0930 0225, so
    the commands I appended in the /etc/rc.local (so that they will be loaded at each startup) are :


    modprobe -v ath3k
    modprobe -v btusb
    echo 0930 0225 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/ath3k/new_id
    echo 0930 0225 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/btusb/new_id


    ("sudo" is not necessary because the rc.local script is executed as root)


    this made the trick.

    Before I tried the other solution proposed in oldest posts : use "toshset" to enable the bluetooth
    but it seems that the "toshset" is not more supported by the newest kernels ( I get the "required kernel Toshiba support not enabled").
    Some people have recompiled the kernel, patching the toshiba_acpi module with an old script to make "toshset" working, but I luckily found this solution in the meantime and now I resolved definitively my last problem using Ubuntu on this laptop.

    Thank you very much.

    Sorry for my little english, I from Italy


    EDIT :
    I rejoiced too soon.
    Ok the Bluetooth applet now is in the tray and I'm able to switch on-off bluetooth end visibility, but the device is still not functioning.
    It's not possible to add a new device (searched devices list is empty, and at the other side the computer is not visible)
