How to check if my Bluetooth Dongle is working

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

In a few days I will get my Magic Trackpad. I have a BT dongle which worked fine in Lion. But how do I check if it works with Mountain Lion without a BT device? I don't see a BT icon in the tray and don't see it in perferences. When I search for Bluetooth, I can click on it and it gives me this message:


You can’t open the “Bluetooth” preferences pane because it is not available to you at this time. To see this preferences pane, you may need to connect a device to your computer.


So..is it true there'll be no Bluetooth anywhere until I try to connect a device? or is the dongle not working in ML?


Edit: under system information / Bluetooth I see: No information found. Tried several USB ports. Doesn't seem to work :worried_anim: ?
