HI,

Did you try Blueman ?

"How to", from Blueman site:

In Ubuntu you can add blueman repositories by issuing this command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:blueman/ppa

And to install it run:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install blueman


More info and developer site : http://blueman-project.org/screenshots.html

But after all, i'm not sure if this adapter will work. Maybe driver or kernel need some settings or install, but i think if you find solution you will be Linux hero :). Version 1 of this adapter worked fine with older Ubuntu 8.04 and 9.04 but after that i can't find information about this adapter.

Did you try with NDISWrapper ?

hmm device is working perfect under newer version of bluez (tested on Ubuntu 12.04 .. bluez 4.98 i thing)...

Can you help to update it?

1)
I uninstalled the old one from synaptic

2) download the source from the official website

3) then..
Quote
./configure
make
make install

but looks like nothing changed...

Hi one more time, i need just 2 more informations.

1. Your kernel version is? In terminal type: uname -a
2. And more information about your adapter, because i have found that you can have version 1 or 2 (do not know details).
3. What say you that bluez package will resolve your problem ?
4. Did you try to install ubuntu package: http://packages.ubuntu.com/quantal/bluez

Sorry i need to ask all this because without good informations i will just miss up your system :).

Thank you very much for your help.. but i fixed it!!!  :)

While i was playing with aircrack-ng suite (wifi card: alfa awus036h) i noticed that airodump was giving me [fixed channel mon0:-1]
so i had to update manually compat wireless drivers..

Here is how i fixed it:

Uninstall linux-backports-modules-* from synaptic

Quote
mkdir drivers
cd drivers/

wget www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless-3.0-stable/v3.0.0/compat-wireless-3.0-2.tar.bz2
tar -jxf compat-wireless-3.0-2.tar.bz2

cd compat-wireless-3.0-2

wget http://patches.aircrack-ng.org/channel-negative-one-maxim.patch
patch ./net/wireless/chan.c channel-negative-one-maxim.patch

make
make install
make unload
reboot

The same update fixed bluetooth support!
