I am on Ubuntu Karmic using Acer Laptop Aspire 5720.
The inbuilt bluetooth button is dead, there is no bluetooth/deafult file and although blueZ and bluetooth Manager have been installed via Synaptic, boot up does not load blueZ resulting in Bluettoth Manager reporting that : Bluez daemon is not running, blueman-manager cannot continue.
grep gives me:
root at acer-laptop:/home/seanbw# dmesg | grep 'Bluetooth'
[    0.284010] Bluetooth: Core ver 2.15
[    0.284018] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized

hcitool dev gives nothing as follows:
root at acer-laptop:/home/seanbw# hcitool dev
Devices:
sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth start results in: nothing whilst status just states:
root at acer-laptop:/home/seanbw# sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth start
root at acer-laptop:/home/seanbw# sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth status
 * bluetooth is not running
Finally in an attempt to put bluetooth in services that start at bootup, I did the following:
sudo update-rc.d -f bluetooth enable S and got:
root at acer-laptop:/home/seanbw# sudo update-rc.d -f bluetooth enable S
update-rc.d: warning: bluetooth start runlevel arguments (none) do not match LSB Default-Start values (2 3 4 5)
update-rc.d: warning: bluetooth stop runlevel arguments (none) do not match LSB Default-Stop values (0 1 6)

   /etc/rc4.d/S25bluetooth -> ../init.d/bluetooth
   /etc/rc5.d/S25bluetooth -> ../init.d/bluetooth
After which a status enquiry still gave me:
root at acer-laptop:/home/seanbw# sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth status
 * bluetooth is not running
