hi there,
i have a sony vaio with an intel 3 processor and 4gb of ram which runs mint 17.1 cinnamon as well as ubuntu 14.04 unity along with ubuntu 14.10 gnome ... had windows 8 preinstalled which i formatted ... however my bluetooth did function and recognise my phone (sony xperia Z1) when on windows ... but in mint and ubuntu though the bluetooth seems to function, it does not recognise/show any device and is not seen on any of my devices(tablet or phone) ... have checked and there are no hard or soft blocks ... have also installed mtp on each with no success...
