Bluetooth enabling

Pecab sorry but I thought I had it working but, no cigar. Do I need a bluetooth adapter to use a Vankyo c371 headset? Checked the review and it said nothing about needing a bluetooth adapter.

On Endeavour Atlantis I installed:
bluez-5.63-1 is up to date – skipping
bluez-utils-5.63-1 is up to date – skipping
there is nothing to do
[bobcapp@z97-aendevourAtlantisNeo ~]$ sudo systemctl enable --now bluetooth
I rebooted; under settings Bluetooth adapters I get:
Connecting to BlueZ Failed
BlueZ daemon is not running, Blueman-manager cannot continue. This probably means that there were no Bluetooth adapter detected or Bluetooth daemon was not started.
Which do you think it is, or did I mess up something else?
Thanks for your help

Have you tried using bluetooth ctl?

https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/bluetooth#Installation

you need to enable and start the bluetooth systemd daemon:

sudo systemctl enable bluetooth.service
sudo systemctl start bluetooth.service

If your computer does not have bluetooth, of course you need an adapter to connect to bluetooth devices.

Oh, that’s why I’m called a newbie I guess. Thank you.

Already done so:

That both starts and enables the daemon.

@Bobcapp, does your computer have a bluetooth adapter? What does this return:

sudo dmesg | grep -i blue

I though systemctl enable bluetooth.service

I did both anyway.

hostname=? addr=? terminal=?
Sorry don’t know what that means yet.

what does


inxi --bluetooth

say?

No bluetooth data found. oops.

Your computer doesn’t appear to have a bluetooth adapter installed.

Also, when you paste terminal output, could you please format it using the “Preformatted text” option in the reply toolbar…highlight the selection and click that icon. That makes it much easier to read.

Ok I’ll get one. Any suggestions as to brand? I assume it will be a usb.

I don’t use bluetooth at all, so I’m not really qualified to recommend a brand :grin:.

It just makes it a lot easier to read.

For example, from your first post in this topic:

bluez-5.63-1 is up to date – skipping
bluez-utils-5.63-1 is up to date – skipping
there is nothing to do
[bobcapp@z97-aendevourAtlantisNeo ~]$ sudo systemctl enable --now bluetooth
I rebooted; under settings Bluetooth adapters I get:
Connecting to BlueZ Failed
BlueZ daemon is not running, Blueman-manager cannot continue. This probably means that there were no Bluetooth adapter detected or Bluetooth daemon was not started.

When formatted, it looks like this:

bluez-5.63-1 is up to date – skipping
bluez-utils-5.63-1 is up to date – skipping
there is nothing to do
[bobcapp@z97-aendevourAtlantisNeo ~]$ sudo systemctl enable --now bluetooth

I rebooted; under settings Bluetooth adapters I get:

Connecting to BlueZ Failed
BlueZ daemon is not running, Blueman-manager cannot continue. This probably means that there were no Bluetooth adapter detected or Bluetooth daemon was not started.
