Bluetooth "news"



  • It seems that bluetooth is definitely not main stream,,,
    So what it's worth...
    I can turn on bluetooth SETTING n Ubuntu 20.10
    I can run Qt Examples btscanner and it actually physically detects(!) nearby bluetooth devices.
    ( few month ago it did so too, but ONLY once. After first try it would NEVER physically look for the device again , it would pull it out of the magician hat - running or not , nearby or long gone... )

    HCI did work perfect then.

    BUT
    it is not perfect ! btscanner no longer gives bluetooth class of service info....

    So - yet another half baked job WELL done .
    MANY MANY THANKS.

    Many laptop computers have a hardware switch or key combination to turn Bluetooth on and off. Look for a switch on your computer or a key on your keyboard. The keyboard key is often accessed with the help of the Fn key.

    AS I said - bluetooth is not, IN MY OPINION, subject to many posts.
    My comment was directed to MAJOR and undocumented changes implementing / enabling bluetooth in general in Ubuntu 16 and then in Ubuntu 20 .
    In 20 I could not get out of "airplane mode " to "turn the bluetooh on" .
    On Ubuntut 20 .10 it works as expected - but it no longer appears as "bluetooth is on" on top status bar.
    Top status bar had few other indicator icons ALL BY DEFAULT - no setup was necessary. Now on latest Ubuntu they are all gone. Maybe because nobody was using them ?
    But this is QT forum and OS problems are "off topic ".
