Bluetooth - it doesn't work using Ubuntu 810

It appears unable to find the internal Bluetooth device.

I think something to do with the kernel or modules - beyond me!

Also pulse audio sound seems to break the build in Mic. Uninstall PulseAudio and install Alsa-Gnome. Turn digital and mic on for mic to work.
