Hi folks ! Hope 2023 is ending well for each and everyone of you.

Here's my problem : I have dabbled for some years now with the same Bluetooth USB dongle and headset on various computers, fittes with different distros. Never had a problem.

Was using it under LL on my HP-Compaq mini laptop until it conked out last march. Haven't find the time to get the spare parts, nor the time to fix it yet, so I installed LL on a Samsung mini laptop.

Here comes my problem, can get the whole bluetooth contraption to work, and I can't figure out why. I've checked both dongle and headset on different computers, they work fine.  :banghead

Does anyone have any idea to solve my predicament ?

Btw, about my computer :
