i’m having Lenovo g560 laptop. I’m facing certrain issues with opensuse 11.4 which i noticed recently.
Well, my laptop has an onboard bluetooth device. I mostly keep it off as there is a switch on the laptop to turn bluetooth on/off.
When i start the machine with bluetooth off (physically turned off), i get to see a bluetooth icon with the text “Bluetooth Monolithic”. When i turn on the bluetooth later at any time without rebooting the system, that icon would remain same to “Bluetooth Monolithic” and will only display the option of “Quit”.
But, When I turn on the laptop with bluetooth on(physically), that text reads as “Bluetooth” now, and gives me all the options available. Even if i turn off the bluetooth now and turn it on again it’ll still work and the text would remain “Bluetooth” only.
This is the output from hwinfo --bluetooth command:
linux-r5s6:/home/lavi # hwinfo --bluetooth
