): Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 Win8 64-bit Bluetooth Compatibility issues

my Bluetooth works on Ubuntu 12.04 but it crashes quite often...

Can anyone help or supply a solution for this?

Answers

So, finally I found this thread with a "solution": http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=106987

I'm only able to activate Bluetooth under Ubuntu (I only have Ubuntu and Windows). The key step is to leave Bluetooth activated as I leave Ubuntu and then Windows recognizes it. Unfortunately I'm still unable to install the official Lenovo-Broadcom driver. The generic Microsoft driver went active automatically.

I'm glad I can use my Bluetooth again! =)
