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.

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