Bluetooth not working in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (beta 2)

by Davide Riboli   Last Updated April 16, 2018 16:02 PM

I've installed the Ubuntu Bionic Beta 2 and everything works fine but the bluetooth. In bluetooth control panel the slider is impossible to move to "on".

Output of rfkill list is:

0: hci0: Bluetooth
   Soft blocked: no
   Hard blocked: no
1: phy0: Wireless LAN
   Soft blocked: no
   Hard blocked: no

Output of lspci -knn | grep Net -A3; lsusb; dmesg | grep -i blue is:
