    Microsoft Bluetooth Dongle Not Detected

    I'm trying to get a Microsoft Bluetooth dongle working in Ubuntu 18.04. Blueman says that there are no Bluetooth devices detected.

    $ lsusb

    I apologise if this is posted elsewhere, and I appreciate any help.

    Re: Microsoft Bluetooth Dongle Not Detected

    Exactly the same issue here with US 20.04. I had it working in older versions but works OK in Lubuntu 18.04.

    I have blueman-manager icon greyed out. If I run blueman-manager I get following output

    blueman-manager version 2.1.2 starting
    blueman-manager 16.01.40 ERROR Manager:118 on_dbus_name_appeared: Default adapter not found, trying first available.
    blueman-manager 16.01.40 ERROR Manager:122 on_dbus_name_appeared: No adapter(s) found, exiting



    lsusb -v returns the following

    Plugged in a Burrows mini bluetooth dongle and works without any issues but 'bt-adapter -l' does not list any adapters.
