Installing CSR 4.0 Bluetooth?
 
I am trying to install a CSR 4.0 Bluetooth dongle, it was advertised as Linux compatible on ebay. I am using Mint on a desktop that doesn't have it' own bluetooth.

The settings show there are no Bluetooth devices even though it is plugged in.

Is there a way to fix this or should I give a bad report in on ebay and choose a recommended brand?

Timothy Miller 02-15-2017 09:17 PM

I guess my first question would be do you have bluetooth support installed in Mint? And does it even recognize? Can you post the output lspci & lsusb with it plugged in?

Novatian 02-15-2017 11:50 PM

I have software for bluetooth ticked in my software list as I sought and downloaded some other programs, including a program to scan for devices.

Ok, well I don't see it listed. Can you unplug and plug in the dongle (in order to get any relevant messages freshly renewed) and then post the output of 'dmesg -H | tail -50'?

Yeah, I think you might have gotten a defective one. From your dmesg, it doesn't appear your pc sees it being plugged in. Like, not that it can't determine a driver, but it plain and simple doesn't see that there's something there.
