Auto-detection of Bluetooth (Installer)

Postby SilverNexus on Fri Jan 11, 2013 12:08 pm

I was thinking that perhaps an algorithm in the Linux Mint installer could detect if any Bluetooth-capable hardware is present on a system. Then, if there are Bluetooth-capable devices, install the Bluetooth software on the computer. Otherwise, there is no reason for the Bluetooth capabilities to be installed. Its not too much of a pain to remove them, but it would make Linux Mint more out-of-the-box ready than before.

I'm 95% certain that my computer is not Bluetooth-capable, and I know that the Bluetooth drivers and things were installed, so I don't think something like this is in place.
They say that a three-year old can use Windows 8. I say that's a bit of a regression. When I was three, I could use DOS.
