I believe "kbluetooth" works better in KDE. Since Ubuntu normally uses GNOME by default, I would suggest right-clicking on the bluetooth icon and selecting Preferences. Then click on "Make computer discoverable", which would allow other bluetooth-enabled devices to find your computer when doing a search.

My acer aspire one D150-1Bk lost the bluetooth due to changing of OS where could i download the software of the certain bluetooth, tnx


That depends entirely on what OS you you replaced the original with.
If you replaced it with a Linux Distribution, such as Fedora or Ubuntu, you will need to open your "package manager" and search for "bluez". Bluez is the framework stack that powers bluetooth devices under linux and most motherboards are supported. If you are using Ubuntu or another debian distribution, you can install bluez by opening a terminal emulator or "command line" and typing the following:

sudo apt-get install bluez

If that returns something similar to "The program aptitude is not installed.."

Then you are not using a debian-based distribution and will need to hunt down bluez via your native package manager.

In order to find out how, you should research the package management utility for your chosen distribution to learn how to use it and download the correct bluez software for your system.

Linux can be very frustrating for new users, so your best bet is to hit the books and learn as much as you can, or if this is too limiting and doesn't fit you well, you may want to switch back to your native OS.

If, however, you are not using linux, but an even more obscure OS such as AROS or another amiga clone, then I'm afraid you won't have bluetooth capability as bluetooth is not supported by many of these.

I hope this was helpful to you.

Bluetooth fails to start on EeePC 701sd (Linux)

I don't think your EeePC 701sd has bluetooth.
Check the specifications of the various models:
You it really is important for you, you might buy nd install a bluetooth adapter that is supported by Linux (it seems most of them are). Check the Linux forums, though, for advice

You may have a conflict with the hardware. I have had installations fail because of this. You may want to use the Ubuntu live CD to boot into Ubuntu. If this works out for you, you should be able to install.

If you cannot boot into Ubuntu using the live CD, try booting into the CD using some special boot prompts. See this How To:

I have a problem to use my bluetooth on my laptop

First of all, check whether your Notebook is having Bluetooth devices or not since the Remote Controller you are using works based in Infrared like the Remote Controll like the remote controller in Televisions.
To check whether your Notebook is having a Bluetooth hardware or not, go to Device Manager by following the steps below :
Right Click on My Computer and select Properties in the list.

Now go to Hardware tab and click on the Device Manager button.
Device Manager window opens in a seperate window.
Check if there are any entries with Bluetooth in the the Device Manager.
If you find any entries with such name, click on the [+] mark next to it to expand the tree.
If you find any entries called Bluetooth emulator, it is just the software you had installed and not the Bluetooth Hardware which you can use to transfer data.
If the Bluetooth hardware is installed in your Notebook, there should be HP Integrated module with Bluetooth.
However, to use Bluetooth, the Wireless button should be turned on.
Just follow this steps and make sure that your Notebook is installed with a Bluetooth Hardware and get back to us if the Notebook is having Bluetooth hardware and unable to use it.
