How to fix Bluetooth problem on HP laptops with Ubuntu (or similar)

A very annoying issue I had with my hp g62 laptop, is that Ubuntu 14.04 couldn’t detect my bluetooth adapter and I couldn’t send or receive any files or pair any devices.

This problem might extend to many other hp laptops. The solution is simply the following command:

sudo bccmd psset -r 0x028c 0x0001

Then restart bluetooth:

sudo restart bluetooth

Enjoy!
