Bluetooth by default was not recognizing the devices I wanted to connect to the computer on my Linux Mint 20 system. Therefore, open a terminal window and enter the following commands:
sudo apt-get install blueman <enter>
sudo systemctl enable bluetooth.service <enter>
sudo systemctl start bluetooth.service <enter>
sudo vi /etc/bluetooth/main.conf <enter>
Under [General] remove the
Name = BlueZ
Add following line below it
Save the file using :wq and exit.
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-module-bluetooth <enter>
pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover <enter>
Now you should see the small Bluetooth icon and can set up other devices. Once it worked, I removed the gnome-bluetooth* using the following command:
sudo apt-get purge gnome-bluetooth* <enter>
Do this only after you are sure that Bluetooth works well for you.
