AR9462 WLAN/BT-Combo Bluetooth 4.0 driver bug Linux Mint 14 (SOLVED)

Ok so my bluetooth adapter is a AR9462 WLAN/BT-Combo. It wasn’t picking up any bluetooth devices at all, nor could any device find it. Found out that it was a bug with the ath3k driver, so i found the fix on Someone had uploaded a patch to fix the error, and i installed it. IT WORKS NOW!.. woo!

Here is the link to the patch

after you get this .deb file you need to do three commands in the terminal

1.)  “sudo dpkg -i ar9462-dkms_1.4-3.5_all.deb”  <— this will give you an error that we will fix in the next two steps

2.) “sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.5.0-21-generic

3.) “sudo dkms install ar9462/1.4-3.5

Then restart your computer, and it should be working for you too!

    This should be hitting the mainstream kernel soon. So hopefully we wont have to do this later on.

  3. Whats up are using WordPress for your site platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create
    my own. Do you require any coding expertise to make
    your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

      No you get a free blog from wordpress. If you want to pay to release it, you can then turn it into your own .com. Its very easy to use. No coding what so ever is needed. I suggest it for a good start.

    Im currently using Linux Mint 16 (Cinnamon/64bit) and I have a AR5B22. I am trying to find a repository that has linux-headers-3.5.0-21-generic. Ive tried adding the archived Precise repos without success. Do you have a link to the repo that would work, or perhaps a way to build it against a more recent kernel?
