Hello all, I'm trying to use the Kinivo BTD-400 Bluetooth 4.0 USB adapter with Ubuntu 8.04.3 and I'm not having good luck. A user who reviewed the product said it worked with Ubuntu 12.04 out of the box so I'm wondering if my software is just too out-of-date.
I'm running a custom Linux 18.104.22.168 and I configured it for BlueTooth support (HCI USB driver was all that I needed to enable ) and installed the new kernel, but it just doesn't seem to handle the device right when I plug it in...
dmesg seems to confirm that I did in fact enable support in the kernel

[ 64.613037] Bluetooth: RFCOMM TTY layer initialized
[ 64.613038] Bluetooth: RFCOMM ver 1.11
This is the message I get when I plug it in
[ 4193.300293] usb 1-1.3: new full speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 8
[ 4193.411891] usb 1-1.3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
I installed the bluez utilities and library files from the apt repositories as well as "blueman" (gnome bluetooth manager) but neither see the device. I also downloaded and installed bluez 3.36 (newest I could install) but this had no difference.
I did try compiling/installing bluez 4 but had some compiling errors so want to know if I'm working in the right direction before I really try to tackle that.
Is there anything else that I'm not aware of which I should be checking?
