Bluetooth dongle not working on bootup

I have an usb bluetooth dongle, inserted it, started bluetooth daemon and everything worked just fine (using kde and bluedevil). However when i rebooted i discovered that during boot the dongle doesn't get initialized so i have to unplug and plug the dongle to make it work. Also at boot up the bluetooth daemon takes a lot of time, while later it takes no time.


If it ain't broke, broke it then fix it.

Re: Bluetooth dongle not working on bootup

Make sure that in your DAEMONS array (/etc/rc.conf) dbus is loaded before bluetooth. Also check whether dbus is backgrounded (@). If so, a possible solution is removing the unbackground dbus. (Removing @).

(That info from the bottom of the Bluetooth wiki).

Re: Bluetooth dongle not working on bootup

yep, it is. the bluetooth daemon starts up as it should, but bluetooth works only when i reconnect it.

Re: Bluetooth dongle not working on bootup

Sorry for bumping an old thread, but I thought it was better to continue on this one instead of starting a new since I have exactly the same issue.

My bluetooth keyboard doesn't work on bootup but if I remove my dongle and reattach it it starts to work immediately. Anyone have any ideas on how to make it work directly on bootup?
