Bluetooth reinstall

Matteo Formigli
Hi all!


I had a new blue-tooth device, and as usual when I get a new blue-tooth
device, I try to make it work with Ubuntu (the hope dies always last...)
. This time, because of despair, I tried to delete and reinstall
everything related to blue-tooth on my machine... Obviously a bad
idea... The deleting went quite well, the reinstall process less.

I reinstalled bluez but when I try to launch some bluez commands it
seems like they are not installed...

Do you have any suggestion about what to do to, at least, restore the
previous situation?


Thanks a lot for the help,

Matteo

How and what did you uninstall and how and what have you re-installed?
If you used apt you can find the history in /var/log/apt

You don't appear to have re-installed everything you uninstalled
(bluewho for example).

Re: Bluetooth reinstall

Matteo Formigli
Hi!

It seems that I regained the original status of the system. Now I would
like to fix this problem with th blue-tooth... I noticed that all the
devices that my computer discovers are categorized as "all types". I am
in a library, so there should be at least one phone or one input device
on the list.

Where do you suggest to start solving the problem?

Thanks a lot for the help!
