    Bluetooth device not detected


    Hi everyone.
    I am trying to make my brand new Arch Linux to detect a simple USB bluetooth dongle.
    I tried following this wiki, but when I type:

    Code:
    hcitool dev
    The oputput is:

    Code:
    bash-3.2# hcitool dev
    Devices:
    bash-3.2#
    The device is not recognized, I guess.
    I must admin I have typed a

    Code:
    modprobe bluetooth
    And now the bluetooth module is started before I login.
    Is there a way to solve this? Or maybe a way to remove the bluetooth module?
    I tried typing:

    Code:
    modprobe -r bluetooth
    But I receive this output:

    Code:
    FATAL: Module bluetooth is in use.
    I tried typing it in TTY1, before the GDM starts, but the output is the same...

    If your bluetooth device is detected and modules corretly loaded use

    hcitool scan to see the near by bluetooth devices first. Try to restart the bluetooth daemon as given in the wiki. For me Fujitech usb tongle works fine
