Toshiba satellite a300-20p bluetooth doesnt work
 
Hello, the build in Toshiba Satellite bluetooth adapter is not working with my Fedora 11

I try to install omnibook, but under /proc/omnibook there is just to files "version & dmi", dmi contain:

Quote:

BIOS Vendor: INSYDE
BIOS Version: 1.70
BIOS Release: 11/24/2008

Product Name: Satellite A300
Version: PSAGCE-09M006AR
Serial Number: 29430246Q
Board Vendor: TOSHIBA
Board Name: Base Board Version
when i try to create file "bluetooth" with value "1" i got:
Quote:

[drdeath@linux omnibook]$ sudo su
[root@linux omnibook]# echo 1 > bluetooth
bash: bluetooth: No such file or directory
[root@linux omnibook]#
i disable SElinux, as it was giving me warning. but still the same issue i cant write on /proc

any idea how to enable my bluetooth device.

I have no idea what your bluetooth device is. That's usually a good place to start.
Some of the modules in /lib/modules/uname -r/kernel/drivers/bluetooth should be loading. Check the logs around there. Let us know what you find

Dr_Death_UAE 07-18-2009 10:38 AM

Hello, those are the bluetooth modules loaded with the latest kernel:

We need to know what device it is before we can make it work.
Also,
- Does it need to be enabled in your BIOS ?
- Does it have a physical switch on your PC somewhere ?

BT devices are often attached by USB. Does it show up with lsusb ?
Code:

Dr_Death_UAE 07-19-2009 02:13 AM

Bluetooth device is "RFCOMM", its buildin device dosent have switch button, in windows it enable with FN+F8, no option in the BIOS for the bluetooth.

My guess is that the device isn't turned on.
You could take a look at /proc/acpi/* to see if there is a likely-looking file you could echo 1 > to get it to turn on.

If not, it may be easier just to get yourself a cheap ($10-20) USB BT dongle.
I plugged one into my kubuntu 8.04 laptop, and, rather to my surprise, it "just worked".

business_kid 07-19-2009 03:40 AM

Many of these bluetooth devices are also wifi things, and you may need the wifi before getting bluetooth.

At any rate, nobody seems to know what it is. Check. grep the logs
grep -i bluetooth /var/log/*

There is also
lspci
lsusb
lspcmcia

to try to find which bus it's hiding on. Check what modules are loaded with
lsmod

Also download a manual from the Toshiba site or check your box in
http://www.linux-laptop.net which has pages for each laptop type.

yes it is bluetooth/wifi device the wifi "Intel wireless WiFi Link 5100" is working fine,
i didn't find my laptop "Toshiba Satellite A300-20p" in www.linux-laptop.net, i found in google that driver "omnibook" will enable the bluetooth, but i have problem setup the driver.

That, I take it, is your bluetooth device. Have you seen this?

I already have "iwlwifi-5000" in "/lib/firmware", also my kernel version is "2.6.29.5-191"

As a general matter of politeness, you need not post large tracts of irrelevant material. Saying that you had the firmware would have been plenty. Have you taken a look here

You will probably find bluetooth instructions somewhere in the package. And if the thing has the correct driver it would be more likely to turn on.
