    what kind of system is it? There are a few systems with known bugs with linux bluetooth support....mine is one of these. I have the Inspiron 9400....same problem, says bluetooth is running but can't connect or see anything (or be seen). There is already a bug report and now I'm just waiting patiently for the fix (it's been about 6 months).

    you probably won't find a list of the systems that don't work. You need to go to launchpads bug reports for Ubuntu and browse for your system (Toshiba Satellite doesn't really give me much....there are lots of models).

    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bugs

    There is the bugs page...it might take you awhile to locate your exact bug (different people list the bugs under different things). Hope this helps.

    You can also google your system

    Toshiba Satellite AXXX (whatever model) bluetooth Hardy

    or something like that and see what comes up.

    Source : https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...et/+bug/181374
    User :Tim Richardson

    P.S:"It's For Toshiba and not all the models supported mine is Toshiba Satellite A200-1M5
    the source's model is Toshiba Satellite Pro U400 and it worked well on both models..."

    the solution in our fourm { the briefing of the useful ideas of the source }

    To follow up on getting bluetooth to work on Ubuntu Hardy, I did this:

    1) visit this site, and add the Debian sid repository
    Unofficial Debian packages
    it is not necessary to add the source repository.

    1a) refresh synaptic, and add the package
    omnibook-source

    2) use module-assistant to build the kernel module (but first, exit synaptic)
    sudo m-a a-i omnibook-source
    (you have to work out how to get module-assistant working yourself. It is a package; you can find it in Synaptic. Make sure you install all recommended dependencies. Try installing build-essential as well)

    3) we need to make sure the module loads at startup
    so edit the file /etc/modules
    sudo vi /etc/modules
    and add the line
    omnibook
    at the end

    4) and we need to get it working so make a file called omnibook in /etc/modprobe.d
    and in this file put one line
    omnibook ectype=14

    5) you don't need to reboot. You can do this
    sudo modprobe omnibook ectype=14

    by doing this, the bluetooth icon appears.
    I just synced my phone. It works very well.
