Ubuntu – RT3290 Bluetooth not pairing in Ubuntu 14.04


I recently followed the instructions listed in the following link to get my RT3290 bluetooth working on my laptop. These instructions have yielded the most progress I have had in the year I have had this laptop. My machine now sees my bluetooth, I can scan for and see devices, and other devices and see my laptop, but pairing continually fails.

  • At the moment there isn't driver for the bluetooth of the RT3290... I have the same problem. However, if you have a launchpad account you can mark this bug as affecting you:
