I've just purchased a USB Bluetooth adapter for my computer.

The brand is Insignia and I was wondering if it's possible to use it on Debian (Kali Linux)?

Ok I got it to recognise the USB device by doing:

modprobe btusb

echo "19ff 0239" >> /sys/bus/usb/drivers/btusb/new_id

But it can't find any devices?
