    No, combinations of any Fn key doesn’t enable my bluetooth
    Is rfcomm related to winmodem,

    Do i need to load rfcomm,

    Can i try any other driver for bluetooth?

    If i remember 7-8 years back i tried winmodem for my Ethernet Connection or a modem connection on my redhat loaded IBM laptop, which worked.

    Finally any alternative for my bluetooth device to work on Linux machine, or trace a log and find a working error with my bluetooth.

    I wish there should be a separate moderator and a separate category for bluetooth in this forum.

    BlueTooth is so closely related to wifi that it really does belong here.

    Most BT devices use btusb, or some variant of it. For that driver to work, the
    hardware *needs* to report its device so that the codes that scan the USB bus
    can find it. Your hardware does not do that!!!!!

    Until you can tell us how the BT device is connected to the computer, there is
    nothing more we can do. I tried to get you to look at the i2c bus, but you never
    followed up with any info I could use.

    I am convinced that your vendor made some local changes to their kernel to get
    BT to work. That code is probably not in general distribution. You need to
    contact them.

    It's part of the BT stack (a protocol required for serial port emulation). Your problem is that the device is not even reported.

    If i remember 7-8 years back i tried winmodem for my Ethernet Connection or a modem connection on my redhat loaded IBM laptop, which worked.

    Modem devices are not ethernet devices, and both completely different to the hardware being discussed here. (However, I had an Agere software modem back in the day, which I did get working with a Linux softmodem driver. I'm glad that type of connectivity is in the distant past.)

    As Larry mentioned at the start of this thread, the device should be present on the USB bus, but no such device is reported. Usually, that is consistent with the device being powered off. Even without a driver, the kernel should report it as being attached to the bus with chipset ID enumerated. FWIW, the webpage I linked to several posts back, was referring to a laptop of the same model, which used an intel chipset ( 8086:0189 Intel Corp).

    from bluetoothctl command output is says no default controller available



    Code:
    suresh@linux-fqgm:~> bluetoothctl 
    [bluetooth]# show
    No default controller available
    [bluetooth]#
    I tried to figure out to find i2c bus, i could not find any device path with i2c, can you please let me know to track my device in a series

    can you figure out, may be my bluetooth device is on SMBus i guess, i am not aware of what is what, just a wild guess

    Do you have windows installed on this machine? If so, the device manager can be used to obtain chipset ID for the bluetooth device.

    deano, so you guess my bluetooth should display with chipset when powered on, recently i replaced my screen, does a physical power goes to on board bluetooth device, if so i have to check that my blue tooth is carrying physical power on.

    I doubt my rfkill reports that my bluetooth is not blocked both software and hardware way ( by this scenario can i conclude my bluetooth is on)

    I never seen windows after working with linux, I will soon find the chipset ID of bluetooth device.

    While searching around, I stumbled across 'samsung-tools'

    Registered 2010-02-28 by Fortunato Ventre


    Tools for Samsung laptops

    'Samsung Tools' is the successor of 'Samsung Scripts' provided by the 'Linux On My Samsung' project.
    It enables control in a friendly way of the devices available on Samsung laptops (bluetooth,...
    https://launchpad.net/samsung-tools

    I wonder if this utility may be needed to properly control your bluetooth device?

    I didn't find an openSUSE 13.1-specific package, but perhaps this 12.3 package may work for you. Worth a shot IMHO

    http://software.opensuse.org/downloa...=samsung-tools

    If you can properly enable your hardware, it will be reported in the 'lsusb' output.

    If you do install samsung-tools, you'll probably run into a dependency requiring xbindkeys, so install that first. ( X11:Utilities repo)

    Perhaps the BT device was disconnected when you replaced the screen. That would
    explain not seeing with lsusb.
