I’m not really facing a problem, I’m more so searching for some information because I haven’t been able to find much. In eos, bluetoothctl is installed by default and that’s what I use to connect my headsets. I’ve noticed that bluez-util (a common package for bluetooth) isn’t installed on my system. I only say that’s a common one because that’s what the archwiki says to install. It seems that instead of bluez, I have this package called bluemoon. At least I’d assume that’s what bluetoothctl is apart of because you can’t just install and uninstall bluetoothctl, right? I’ve never heard of bluemoon but from the little info I’ve found it’s a configuration utility and it’s main purpose isn’t even bluetooth. It has options to load/check firmware, a cold boot controller and a few other things. One being the ability to set a bluetooth address. I’d much rather have bluez-util but I can’t even uninstall bluemoon.
sudo pacman -R bluemoon
doesn’t do anything. There is also a binary at /usr/bin/bluemoon that is under root. How would I get rid of this and use bluez-utl instead? I know I could install bluez-util in tandom but that’s not really the point. I just don’t like such an obscure binary having root access. The only thing I’ve found on it is from some Ubuntu manpages https://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/bionic/man1/bluemoon.1.html#usage:
So, for real how I can I get rid of this? Would just signing into root and deleting that file be okay? Just seems like it could mess some stuff up.
I’d appreciate any help or any more information on the matter! Thanks in advance.
