Ubuntu: Bluetooth does not work - “can't load firmware” - Vaio - Ubuntu 14.04


Everything goes well with my new Vaio laptop except the bluetooth. It is recognized in some way but it does not work.

I have already looked in askubuntu for similar cases but I don't find a solution anyway.

I did this:

~$ dmesg | grep -i blue  [ 12.662286] Bluetooth: Core ver 2.17  [ 12.662306] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized  [ 12.662314] Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized  [ 12.662317] Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized  [ 12.662323] Bluetooth: SCO socket layer initialized  [ 12.701731] Bluetooth: BNEP (Ethernet Emulation) ver 1.3  [ 12.701735] Bluetooth: BNEP filters: protocol multicast  [ 12.701742] Bluetooth: BNEP socket layer initialized  [ 12.859623] Bluetooth: RFCOMM TTY layer initialized  [ 12.859635] Bluetooth: RFCOMM socket layer initialized  [ 12.859640] Bluetooth: RFCOMM ver 1.11  [ 81.946726] Bluetooth: can't load firmware, may not work correctly  [ 84.923846] Bluetooth: can't load firmware, may not work correctly    ~$ rfkill list  0: sony-wifi: Wireless LAN  Soft blocked: no  Hard blocked: no  1: sony-bluetooth: Bluetooth  Soft blocked: no  Hard blocked: no  

So I tried to install linux-firmware as suggested in a question here but it says I have the last version yet.

Also I found a suggestion about restarting gnome-bluetooth but it didn't work.

Any idea? Thanks a lot!
