Bluetooth adapter not found in F16 KDE 4.7.3

On a clean install of F16, the following is the status of the bluetooth service upon startup:

[rob@rob ~]$ systemctl status bluetooth.service
bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service; enabled)
Active: inactive (dead)
CGroup: name=systemd:/system/bluetooth.service

After forcibly starting the bluetooth service this is what systemctl reports:

[rob@rob ~]$ sudo systemctl start bluetooth.service
[sudo] password for rob:
[rob@rob ~]$ systemctl status bluetooth.service
bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service; enabled)
Active: active (running) since Sun, 13 Nov 2011 17:31:39 -0600; 16s ago
Main PID: 13220 (bluetoothd)
CGroup: name=systemd:/system/bluetooth.service
└ 13220 /usr/sbin/bluetoothd -n

In F15 this would fix the problem and my laptop's bluetooth adapter would be recognized and active after each restart. Now, it only remains active until you reboot and for some reason KDE's bluetooth manager in the system setting program doesn't even recognize that a bluetooth adapter is present. Any insight into this problem? Let me know if any further information or installed package info would be of help.


Thanks.

Try installing bluez-hid2hci. Don't forget to restart bluetooth service "systemctl restart bluetooth.service" as root. This has worked for others.

Thanks jayfree. Installing that package and restarting the service solved the problem.
