[ubuntu] WIDCOMM Bluetooth Dongle

I have an external Bluetooth USB Dongle that uses a Widcomm Driver in Windows XP. When i first installed Ubuntu, it worked fine, and I was able to find devices and transfer files. However, suddenly it stopped working. Now, when I go to System > Preferences > Bluetooth, it says that I don't have any Bluetooth devices plugged in.

Anyone have an idea what could be wrong?

If you made no changes, and it just stopped working, I'd think it was a hardware problem.

Try making a quick virtual machine with a vanilla Ubuntu installation and see if the adapter works there.
You can get vmware for linux free here:
