Bluetooth adaptor

Post by JPB18 »

I've installed Mint 19, which works well except the inbuilt bluetooth is not activated. Have installed Blueman but can't pair with other bluetooth devices. USB Bluetooth device will work fine.

I'm new to Linux so advice on establishing what is status of onboard bluetooth and how to troubleshoot it would be very welcome.

Probably it needs firmware loaded.
