* On trusty, we met this issue, you can't turn on/off bluetooth, it
affected the other OEM project which needed by Lenovo, HP and Dell.
* open the unity-control-center, and select 'Bluetooth', try to turn
on/off in top checkbox.
I am on ThinkPad T61 with Ubuntu 13.10 installed. I disabled bluetooth
on startup by adding:
"echo disable > /proc/acpi/ibm/bluetooth"
to /etc/rc.local. When I open gnome-control-center -> Bluetooth and
click on the "ON/OFF" switch button, it switches on for a fraction of
a second and then switches back to off. Below are dmesg lines
corresponding to this event:
[ 94.028110] usb 3-1: new full-speed USB device number 5 using uhci_hcd
[ 94.194320] usb 3-1: New USB device found, idVendor=0a5c, idProduct=2110
[ 94.194325] usb 3-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2,
[ 94.194328] usb 3-1: Product: BCM2045B
[ 94.194330] usb 3-1: Manufacturer: Broadcom Corp
[ 94.388169] usb 3-1: USB disconnect, device number 5
The workaround is to type "turn connectivity on/off" combination of my
keyboard (FN+F5) -- then both wireless and bluetooth go off, and when
I type it again, bluetooth comes back ON.
