bluetooth troubles on HP ProBook 6560b


Recently I have bought an HP ProBook 6560b, and have installed Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit, without any problems, except one :

BlueTooth does not work !

It is detected at startup :

dmesg | grep -i bluetooth
[    5.582626] Bluetooth: Core ver 2.16
[    5.582647] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized
[    5.582650] Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized
[    5.582651] Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized
[    5.583048] Bluetooth: SCO socket layer initialized
[    5.584337] Bluetooth: RFCOMM TTY layer initialized
[    5.584342] Bluetooth: RFCOMM socket layer initialized
[    5.584344] Bluetooth: RFCOMM ver 1.11
[    5.584548] Bluetooth: BNEP (Ethernet Emulation) ver 1.3
[    5.584551] Bluetooth: BNEP filters: protocol multicast
I have the bluetooth icon in the status bar, and bluetooth is on, but I cannot add any devices, none is detected, even though the laptop is seen by other computers !

If I add the laptop as a device to one of the other computers, I do get a pincode to enter on the other computer, but when I afterwards try to browse or send files to the laptop, the connection times out, and the bluetooth icon disappears from the status bar on the laptop !

Any ideas ?

Thanks, Kim
