Ubuntu – Broadcom Bluetooth device remains undetected (BCM2046, WIDCOMM )


enter image description here

lspci output :

Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)

lsusb output :

Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub (part of BCM2046 Bluetooth)

rfkill list output :

1: dell-bluetooth: Bluetooth

Soft blocked: no

Hard blocked: no

..but my WiFi works fine.

In Windows I had to install Dell Wirless 365 Bluetooth driver to get it working.
I installed BlueMan in Ubuntu, but it doesn't show any Bluetooth adapter.
When I try to apply a kernel patch described here , it ends up saying:

patching file src/wl/sys/wl_linux.c

Hunk #1 FAILED at 332.

1 out of 1 hunk FAILED — saving rejects to file src/wl/sys/wl_linux.c.rej

Thanks for any help…

I had the same problem on my dual boot machine, switching over to windows and enabling the bluetooth and then going back to Ubuntu 12.04 fixed the problem.
