Im using a laptop ASUS A455LF with fresh install of elementary OS 0.4.1 Loki, when i try to use my bluetooth, no devices are found.

When try this in terminal: sudo systemctl status bluetooth.service

Get this ● bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service; disabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: active (running) since lun 2017-10-16 12:05:20 COT; 1h 10min ago Docs: man:bluetoothd(8) Main PID: 948 (bluetoothd) Status: "Running" CGroup: /system.slice/bluetooth.service └─948 /usr/lib/bluetooth/bluetoothd oct 16 12:05:20 einar-X455LF bluetoothd[948]: Not enough free handles to register service oct 16 12:05:20 einar-X455LF bluetoothd[948]: Not enough free handles to register service oct 16 12:05:20 einar-X455LF bluetoothd[948]: Current Time Service could not be registered oct 16 12:05:20 einar-X455LF bluetoothd[948]: gatt-time-server: Input/output error (5) oct 16 12:05:20 einar-X455LF bluetoothd[948]: Not enough free handles to register service oct 16 12:05:20 einar-X455LF bluetoothd[948]: Not enough free handles to register service oct 16 12:05:20 einar-X455LF bluetoothd[948]: Sap driver initialization failed. oct 16 12:05:20 einar-X455LF bluetoothd[948]: sap-server: Operation not permitted (1)

  1. Strech bluetooth device search window vertically

  2. sudo systemctl restart bluetooth.service

  3. Reinstall OS

I had the same issue at first. My problem was that I needed to expand the Device Search window because it was too small and the device that was actually found, and was present under Device, was not visible in the window.It sounds stupid, but that's what it was. enter image description here

    If you can, try other devices. It might be a device problem. – cristian mos Oct 18 '17 at 14:30
  • In Windows 10 it works – Einar Romero Oct 19 '17 at 15:47

It could also be that bluetooth is not unlocked you can use:

rfkill list to see if your bluetooth is blocked if it is you can use rfkill unblock bluetooth and it should fix it

  • I add theinfo, but its not blocked – Einar Romero Oct 22 '17 at 17:33
  • install blueman – Bhikkhu Subhuti Oct 23 '17 at 5:34
  • I did it, but have the same result – Einar Romero Nov 8 '17 at 2:39

Just check that your Discover Devices window is expanded. By default its minimal, and can hide discovered devices within. This should really be reported as a bug I guess.
