bluetooth issue in HP folio 13

Asked by Swaroop Chakraborty on 2012-09-04

Hi,

I recently bought an HP Folio 13 1017 model and installed Ubuntu 12.04. After much googling, I was able to solve the backlight issue. Then I got stuck with the wifi thing. The Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030 hardware is not at all detected. Anyhow I searched the forums and community pages to find that it will work with 'wicd'. So, I removed the network-manager and installed wicd and now i'm able to surf with wifi on. Now, I want to solve the bluetooth and a few more issues that I have.

1. Is there a way that I can get the hardware detected for both wireless and bluetooth having the default network-manager?

2. Currently my kernel version is 3.2.0-29-generic. Will a kernel upgrade solve the issue? Let me know what all the bad consequences if I do a kernel upgrade.

Regards,
swaroop

Can you give the output of:

dmesg | grep -i blue; lsb_release -a; uname -a; lspci; lsusb

Thanks

Hi Actionparsnip,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you with the required info. I was having much trouble connecting to net. As i read that wicd works great detecting wireless networks, i installed it and it was working fine. but then i could not connect to my mobile broadband which i use at my home. so, i uninstalled it again and tried installing Connman but it didn't help. So, i again installed network-manager-gnome and now i am able to connect to wired/mobile broadband using that. and though i purged wicd, it still exists in my laptop which i use to connect to wireless at office. I am sharing this information coz may be it would effect the terminal query you wanted from me and may be it would help you suggest a better solution. Given below is the terminal output of the query.

Regards,
swaroop

Hi,

Please help me get the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030 get detected in Ubuntu 12.04. I assume that would solve the issue with my bluetooth. Please let know if anyone knows a page on the net where I can find a solution for this.
