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.

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.

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.
