How do you find Bluetooth in deepin
 
I just installed deepin and nowhere can I find bluetooth

Ztcoracat 03-18-2019 08:09 PM

Hi & Welcome to Linux Questions-:)

Find out if Bluetooth is installed.

To find out run this:

Code:

dpkg -L bluez
https://thelinuxcode.com/enable-bluetooth-ubuntu/

This might help too:

https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...re-4175625187/

If you still have trouble look for Bluetooth or bluez in your Synaptic Package Manager.

I believe it is installed however I cannot find any icon for the Bluetooth

Ztcoracat 03-19-2019 02:36 PM

If Bluetooth is installed it would show in your system tray or somewhere on the desktop.

Try looking in your settings. What happens when you run this command?

sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth start

rtstxtrdnr 03-19-2019 02:53 PM

This is what happened , however I still have to restart to see if it appears!

It doesn't look like it's installed.

What is the output of:

Code:

dpkg -L bluez

Have you updated your Deepin distro since your fresh installation?

Ok-

Is there a chance that your bluetooth device is blocked?
Run this to see if it's blocked:

Code:

sudo rfkill list
If it still doesn't work look here:

rtstxtrdnr 03-19-2019 04:24 PM

T is not blocked and it worked fine before I installed it, Still nothing

What worked fine before you installed it?

Looking at post # 8 and # 11 it looks like bluetooth is installed.
It should launch with:

Code:

sudo service bluetooth start
If it's not launching with the above command than something (probably a dependency or dependencies) are missing.Anyway.......
Normally you would see the bluetooth icon in the panel or tray to set up a new device.

You can't pair your bluetooth device without blueman.
Is blueman installed?

It should be yes.

That's a good sign.

The Bluetooth agent is what manages the Bluetooth 'pairing code'.

Now at the bluetooth# prompt type: default-agent. Like so:

Sorry-

Where you able to type default-agent at the bluetooth prompt and get information showing that your device is connected?

rtstxtrdnr 03-19-2019 07:01 PM

Nothing

When you type bluetoothctl it should show your device connected.
Is your bluetooth device on?

I'm afraid I'm nearing the end of where I can help you.

Then you should get the message that your Default agent request was successful. And your device should show that it is connected.

rtstxtrdnr 03-19-2019 07:31 PM

Here is what I got:]# default-agent
Default agent request successful

If it was successful it should show your device connected.

In the past did you have to type in a passkey for your bluetooth device?

The gui is normally brought up by an icon. Otherwise, look in your settings for bluetooth.

How to start bluetooth daemon Ubuntu?
Here are a few.

Start the bluetooth daemon. Go to your terminal and type : sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth start.
Reinstall packages. If this doesn't work, go to your terminal and type : sudo apt-get purge blueman bluez-utils bluez bluetooth sudo apt-get install blueman bluez-utils bluez bluetooth.

That's all that I know of that will help.

rtstxtrdnr 03-19-2019 08:23 PM

I guess it never will work, some of the codes did not work .There should be a on/o as there is in network or wireless connection.
Thank you for your help

You're Welcome.

You might want to try Ubuntu:-

Germany_chris 03-20-2019 01:12 PM

Since it's systemd you need to start first, then enable.

systemctl start bluetooth.service <---starts
systemctl enable bluetooth.service <---restarts service after reboot

You also need to make sure your bluetooth applet is installed.

Bluetooth issues
 
There is one question I have, and that is why isn't Bluetooth included in settings or automatically installed like WiFi? I have installed many Linux systems before and Bluetooth always worked automatically.

Ztcoracat 03-21-2019 02:52 PM

https://askubuntu.com/questions/8434...pplet-on-16-04

Not all distributions are built the same. Linux Deepin's DE may not come with Bluetooth, blueman or the other pkg's that are associated with Bluetooth.

If I recall correctly, when I was running Deepin a a few years ago I didn't have Bluetooth at that time.
