Bluetooth on Toshiba Satellite Pro L770

Postby QuoiQue » 2017-07-28 13:52

Hi there, I just installed Debian 8 Jessie on a second-hand Toshiba Satellite L770 laptop bought for this purpose.

When I start up I get a brief message warning that bluetooth can't be configured and in the Settings/Bluetooth it says "No Bluetooth adapters found"

I downloaded ath3k-1.fw and put it in /lib/firmware/ to no avail.

I see that someone on this forum fixed a similar problem using Windows, but I don't have Windows installed nor do I have a Windows installer.

Here is my set up:

Code: Select all
dmesg | grep -i blue
[    8.551200] toshiba_bluetooth: Detected Toshiba ACPI Bluetooth device - installing RFKill handler
[    8.551272] toshiba_bluetooth: Re-enabling Toshiba Bluetooth
[    9.953459] Bluetooth: Core ver 2.19
[    9.953486] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized
[    9.953496] Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized
[    9.953499] Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized
[    9.953519] Bluetooth: SCO socket layer initialized
[   16.000792] Bluetooth: Can't change to loading configuration err

This probably won't help you but it's worth checking. Run
Code: Select all
lspci -v
Identify the Bluetooth hardware. Check the non-free repository for any proprietary firmware that might be needed. Make sure you have firmware-misc-nonfree, firmware-linux-free and firmware-linux-nonfree.
