Bluetooth adapters not detected
I have installed Neptune 4.0 on two different machines (laptop and desktop) with bluetooth adapters. Both worked flawlessly with Ubuntu, Kubuntu, SolydK, and Mint. With Neptune, both report (under KDE system settings) that

Issuing
Code:
dmesg | grep bluetooth
on my laptop gives

I installed usbutils and issued
Code:
lsusb
which gave

Finally, I considered installing bluez-tools, but that would have forced the removall of bluedevil. Is that what I should do? How do I get bluetooth working again? Thanks!

[update]For some reason, the bluetooth daemon was not automatically starting. I started it manually with
Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth  restart
and now my bluetooth is detected.

RE: Bluetooth adapters not detected
Nice that you found the resolution to this problem.
It might show a problem with our switch to systemd that makes bluetooth not startingduring bootup.
We'll investigate that.

RE: Bluetooth adapters not detected
Turns out bluetooth is disabled by default on the installation media.
You can enable the bluetooth daemon with systemd and the command:
Code:
sudo systemctl enable bluetooth
