HP Spectre x360 - 15-df1033dx
Ubuntu LTS

Hi,

 

I moved from windows to Ubuntu on my HP Spectre laptop, and I am not able to use bluetooth now. When I go to bluetooth settings, I see the message "No bluetooth found. Plug in a dongle to use bluetooth". From my googling, I guess that this is due to compatibility issues of Linux based operating systems with hardware drivers. But I have not found any solutions or workarounds. I will highly appreciate any help.

 

Thanks

You may have to replace the Wi-Fi/Bluetooth  with a different one.

You have Intel AX201 and there are reported problems as shown here

and here especially

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=253737

 

I looked at several motherboard pictures on ebay and was unable to determine if that intel chipset is built into the motherboard or socketed as m.2.  The HP spec mentioned only the m.2 for the hard drive NVME

 

If the motherboard has m.2 for the WiFi then look for a replacement that has support for linux.. 

You might see if the latest mint has support or get an older bluetooth 4.2 board what will probably work..  I had to do something similar when building a hackintosh.
