Edit: Nevermind, i did not start the service, sry for the inconvinience! Note to myself: actually read the output you are copy pasting into forum posts -.-
I am trying to connect my bluetooth headphones to my ThinkpadX230, but i cant even select the bluetoothcontroller of my laptop since it is not listed in bluetoothctl.
hciconfig shows a bluetooth controller is up and running:
$ hciconfig hci0: Type: BR/EDR Bus: USB BD Address: 08:3E:8E:E3:2A:5C ACL MTU: 1021:8 SCO MTU: 64:1 UP RUNNING RX bytes:5212 acl:0 sco:0 events:111 errors:0 TX bytes:1244 acl:0 sco:0 commands:91 errors:0
the bluetooth service is started:
$ systemctl | grep bluetooth sys-devices-pci0000:00-0000:00:1a.0-usb3-3\x2d1-3\x2d1.4-3\x2d1.4:1.0-bluetooth-hci0.device loaded active plugged /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb3/3-1/3-1.4/3-1.4:1.0/bluetooth/hci0 sys-subsystem-bluetooth-devices-hci0.device loaded active plugged /sys/subsystem/bluetooth/devices/hci0 bluetooth.target loaded active active Bluetooth
i am using bluez5 but got frustrated and also tried it with bluedevil(and therefore bluez4) which also didnt show the controller.
Did i forget something i need to do?
Can you give me a hint where i might find information why the controller is not listed?

I had the same problem. I reinstalled bluez and bluez-firmware, that did the trick.
