  • 1. in udev rules, create a file called 99-local-bluetooth.rules using your favorite text editor e.g. vi:
cd /etc/udev/rules.d
sudo vi 99-local-bluetooth.rules 

where 99-local-bluetooth.rules is a one line file with the following contents:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0000", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0000", RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'modprobe btusb; echo 0000 0000 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/btusb/new_id'"
  • 2. Then reboot.
  • 3. The bluetooth adapter will magically appear after reboot in Bluetooth settings
