After having updated the kernel to version 4.4.6, both the bluetooth GUI and some other things (eg connecting a device via bluetooth) do not work.
The things I tried were the following:
- reinstall the bluetooth package (unsuccessfully)
- neither uninstall it and reinstall it
- restart the service
Being a user gives me:
Starting Bluetooth services: bluetoothd hciconfig sdptool hciattach D-Bus setup failed: Connection ":1.58" is not allowed to own the service "org.bluez" due to security policies in the configuration file rfcomm
And being root starts it well without error or with sudo it starts well too.
dmesg | grep -i blue [ 6.623881] Bluetooth: Core ver 2.21 [ 6.623897] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized [ 6.623901] Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized [ 6.623903] Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized [ 6.623908] Bluetooth: SCO socket layer initialized [ 15.270804] Bluetooth: BNEP (Ethernet Emulation) ver 1.3 [ 15.270808] Bluetooth: BNEP filters: protocol multicast [ 15.270812] Bluetooth: BNEP socket layer initialized hcitool dev Devices: hci0 4C:EB:42:7F:C1:6D rfkill list bluetooth 1: hci0: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
I do not know what to try anymore, it used to work great, but not now, and I do not intend to downgrade!
