The post you linked to is 6 years old. Surely there is a more relevant post

Thanks for bringing that to my attention!

Am much closer following this 'recipe' (3rd answer) and also cross referencing Arch wiki

http://askubuntu.com/questions/73031...nnect-in-15-10

Only change so far is had to use
Code:
sudo apt-get install bluez:i386
to get bluetoothctl

ok so works initially BUT
after reboot NO bluetooth icon in my Panel and bluetooth not working

Also if I try and duplicate the install I get

Any bluetooth experts reading this that can help? I am using a Asus BT400 bluetooth dongle.

Would you mind clarifying this statement? Do you mean you are able to successfully pair and use bluetooth initially and it then fails?

The Archwiki is an amazing resource and should be able to get you up and running with bluetooth. Did you follow the "Configuration via the CLI" section? Or are you using a gui?

Also, what is the output of
Code:
dmesg | grep bluetooth

Thanks
Was able to reinstall my bluetooth icon by running

Code:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall blueman
then reboot

so I have working bluetooth now, the only caveat being I have to select bluetooth from panel and choose 'Make Discoverable' every time I boot.

result of
Code:
dmesg | grep bluetooth

So your bluetooth is working?
Because
Code:
[ 12.846257] bluetooth hci0: Direct firmware load for brcm/BCM20702A1-0b05-17cb.hcd failed with error -2
seems to indicate it failed to load firmware.

Are you actually able to pair your devices and transfer files?
