How to use my GTX Bluetooth USB dongle?

Post by drpeppercan » Sun Dec 24, 2017 7:52 pm

Hi all,

After I plugged it, I opened the Bluetooth application in LM Mate 18.3 but it couldn't find any devices, although my cellphone was within 3 feet distance.
So I am suspecting that I need to install drivers first (?).
I got this Bluetooth USB dongle a few years ago. I think I had only used it with Windows.
I am having the hardest time finding the Linux drivers.
Does anyone know how to go about this?

Thanks

Never mind!
It's all good now!
No need to install additional software. Except for Blueman Bluetooth Manager, but I'm sure it's optional. I am using my headset with it.

I sort of spoke too soon :(
It is connected. However, Blueman fails to switch to any profile/mode that would allow me to hear anything.
Could it be that the dongle is just too old?
