Hello there,

I'm trying to get my Bluetooth in my Thinkpad T430 running. I'm relatively new to Linux so please don't expect too much in depth knowledge. I have a bluetooth section in my gnome3 perferences window, but it is all greyed out

My Kernel configuration copied from make menuconfig. I've run make modules afterwards, but I'm not sure if everything is loaded.
