Turn on Bluetooth


Hi, in my notebook I use Fn+F2 to turn on bluetooth, but in slackware that doesn't work, to have bluetooth in my slackware I have to turn it on in Windows and reboot.

Can anyone help me?

That seems very odd. Maybe you want to give the make and model of your laptop.

I used HardInfo to generate a report.
When I generated the report, bluetooth was off.

What is "Hardinfo"? -- It's not in my SimplyMEPIS 7 repos. Is it "Winders" s/w? An explanation, preferably a link, would be appreciated.
