Bluetooth Issues

Post by pedronell88 » Thu Jul 19, 2018 11:54 pm

Hello,
I recently installed Mint and everything works fine except for the Bluetooth. I have been reading in order to solve it but have not managed to do so.
In the Terminal I looked up the status of the Bluetooth adapter and this is what's displayed, however I don't know how to interpret what's being displayed, I'll I get from this is that it's running fine:

Code: Select all

jpedroza@CP-JCPA:~$ sudo systemctl status bluetooth -l

The Bluetooth applet straight away says there's no adapters found and I can't basically do anything with it.

Could some one please shed some light on what can I do fix this? Thanks!

I have given up on Bluetooth. I use a 2.4Ghz USB wireless Keyboard/Mouse, wired headphones and speakers.

Just realized that the usb adapter i have is a wireless adapter for keyboard etc. This PC probably does not have Bluetooth ! I'll pick up a BT adapter to try before going any further !
