F17 bluetooth adapter not found

I am trying to get bluetooth working on an Asus N73SV.
When I open system settings and go to bluetooth all options are grayed out and "No bluetooth adapter found" is displayed.

Output from bluetoothd -nd:
Code:
hans@boson:~$ sudo bluetoothd -nd

Re: F17 bluetooth adapter not found

Is your Bluetooth service started or enabled in systemd?

Yes, it is. I tried to restart it but that doesn't help.

Re: F17 bluetooth adapter not found

I have a ASUS motherboard with built-in bluetooth adapter which I believe uses the Atheros AR30xx chip. I believe your notebook too, in a way. A quick search on the internet shows that your notebook uses Atheros AR9004WB-1NG which combines WIFI (AR9485) and bluetooth (AR3012) into one chip. Perhaps, Linux kernel (or just Fedora) fails to recognize that and does not automatically load the Atheros kernel module on boot up.

Below is the lsmod output from my system.
Code:
[weitjong@igloo ~]$ lsmod |grep -i bluetooth
bluetooth             298929  26 bnep,hidp,ath3k,btusb,rfcomm
rfkill                 21384  4 bluetooth,asus_wmi
No promise but you may want to try to manually load the ath3k (and hidp) kernel modules to see if it fixes your problem.

I tried loading them and restarted bluetooth.service. Still same problem.

Code:
hans@boson:~$ lsmod | grep -i bluetooth
bluetooth             298929  13 bnep,hidp,ath3k,btusb,rfcomm
rfkill                 21384  7 cfg80211,bluetooth,asus_wmi

Re: F17 bluetooth adapter not found

I am sorry to hear that. Probably the current version of ath3k really does not recognize your chip yet. Perhaps your AR3012 has different vendor ID & product ID from its current supported list. See the supported list in here.

And just for a comparison, my system's dmesg output has a recognizable Atheros chip. In my case it is a AR3011, the first in the list in the above c source code.

Code:
Sep 25 16:11:34 igloo kernel: [    2.256450] usb 2-1.7: new full-speed USB device number 5 using ehci_hcd
Sep 25 16:11:34 igloo kernel: [    2.341771] usb 2-1.7: New USB device found, idVendor=0cf3, idProduct=3000
Sep 25 16:11:34 igloo kernel: [    2.341773] usb 2-1.7: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=0, SerialNumber=0
I don't know how comfortable are you with compiling c source code, but from the past git commits it appears it is rather trivial to modify the list to add new vendor/product id. I am sorry to say you are on your own as I have never done that myself. May be it is easier just to submit the request to kernel developer to add that for you .

Smile Re: F17 bluetooth adapter not found

hi,

i have what appears to be nearly the same problem except bluetoothd returned a more detailed reason for the bluetooth radio being precluded from the bus. differences are i am on a 2k6 macbook pro run by fedora 18. it appears what is required to get my radio the bus is create a local policy to allow it but i am not sure how to setup such policies. please advise.

thank you.

UPDATE: i have tried to update /etc/sysconfig/bluetooth as recommended in the fedora bluetooth wiki but it's not there. the files go from authconfig to sysd.

Re: F17 bluetooth adapter not found

Have you checked the journal entries? Something like: journalctl -b -u bluetooth.service
Not in front of my computer right now, so the cmd argument may not be entirely correct.

Re: F17 bluetooth adapter not found

There is not much in the output to work with. I suppose you need to confirm whether your MBP uses a Broadcom or a Atheros chipset and also find its vendor/product id.
Then use that information to check against the C source code in the kernel bluetooth driver.
