Bug Description

I am not able to turn on the bluetooth from the bluetooth applet ... after clicking on "turn on bluetooth" , It just grayed out.
I have tried in both natty and oneiric.
edit: I think i made some progress.Bluez seems to be the problem.
I used sakis3g(www.sakis3g.org) and used my nokia mobile's mac address and it did connected for a while...and then stops.
In terminal, i used rfcomm connect command, it asked for pass in my mobile but no pass worked as i think there is no pairing agent bind to the bluetooth device.

pairing is a problem now.. as no pairing agent is running
Should i try installing precise's bluez package or compile from source?

Would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Please test the latest v3.3 kernel[1] (Not a kernel in the daily directory). Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag(Only that one tag, please leave the other tags). This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text.

If this bug is fixed by the mainline kernel, please add the following tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream-KERNEL-VERSION'. For example, if kernel version 3.3-rc2 fixed the issue, the tag would be: 'kernel-fixed-upstream-v3.3-rc2'.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag: 'kernel-bug-exists-upstream'.

If you are unable to test the mainline kernel, for example it will not boot, please add the tag: 'kernel-unable-to-test-upstream'.
Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as "Confirmed".

Thanks in advance.

I installed the latest kernel 3.3rc2. It didn't fixed it.
I then tried to reinstall bluez 4.98 from source, it didn't fixed.
I did try service restart in between steps.

Then i installed Blueman, started it but it shows bluez error that bluez daemon was not running

I tried rfcomm command to connect with my mobile... it did asked the passkey on my mobile... no passkey matched.

Then, i tried to run bluez-simple-agent in terminal believing it was a pairing agent .
it threw some python traceback errors:

  File "/usr/bin/bluez-simple-agent", line 88, in <module>
    manager = dbus.Interface(bus.get_object("org.bluez", "/"),

dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.bluez was not provided by any .service files

Currently, I have uninstalled bluez(and with it i think gnome-bluetooth), then installed blueman (and it reinstalled bluez4.91).
Blueman is showing same errors as above even now.

Some success at last...
I purged bluez via
sudo apt-get remove --purge bluez

then installed bluez from here

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bluez/4.69-0ubuntu2/+build/1930179

these are maverick's version of bluez.
Now Blueman detects my mobile and i can browse files on it.
Still DUN is a problem a bit.
But that seems to be another bug.

Bhaskar Divya, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If so, could you please test for this with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO CD images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in the development release from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Please do not test the kernel in the daily folder, but the one all the way at the bottom. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested and remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text.

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream-VERSION-NUMBER', where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag: 'kernel-bug-exists-upstream-VERSION-NUMBER', where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested.

If you are unable to test the mainline kernel, please comment as to why specifically you were unable to test it and add the tag: 'kernel-unable-to-test-upstream'.

Please let us know your results. Thank you for your understanding.
