The package bluez-hid2hci should be installed in order for it to work. You can type the following command to do so:

sudo yum install bluez-hid2hci

You should edit your question with more information so someone can help you:

  • what is your bluetooth device (use lsusb to find out)?
  • is the bluetooth service running (use systemctl status bluetooth)?
  • was it working before? If yes, on which distribution?
  • is there any kind of software/hardware lock (install rfkill and try rfkill list)?

Yes I enabled the bluetooth device on my laptop but after that when I am searching for bluetooth device (here my mobile phone) then it takes too long time but the device never found. I have tried it several times but nothing changed. My phone is ok and it founds in windows environment.
