[Bug 180659] Re: No Bluetooth Device Detected in hcitool dev

I finally got my bluetooth working. This model of TOSHIBA has a BIOS
from Phoenix, so "toshset" cannot be used. The wireless bluetooth
adapters are turned off at each power-on self test (POST). In windows
turning on the bluetooth adapter is done using hotkeys Fn + F8, as long
as hotkeys are not supported in Linux (for models featuring Phoenix
BIOS) there is no way to turn it on. So you end up using "omnibook", a
package which provides Linux kernel support for TOSHIBA and HP laptops.
The package and related documents can be found at
http://omnibook.sourceforge.net/doku.php.There is also a supported
models list available. A step-by-step installation guide is available at
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=316358. The interesting point
is that if you are lucky enough you might even have other features
enabled such as hotkeys, lcd brightness adjustment, cpu temprature, etc.
