Start a terminal session and type:
Code:
/sbin/lsmod
look for something like this: bluetooth 54116 9 hidp,bnep,rfcomm,l2cap,btusb. If you have that all you need to do is install the gnome-bluetooth package.

You should be able to install it via Synaptic or from commandline do:
Code:
sudo apt-get install gnome-bluetooth
If you use Synaptic hit the reload button first to refresh your package list, then do a search for gnome-bluetooth. If you use the commandline method, run:
Code:
sudo apt-get update
first then install gnome-bluetooth.
