How can I control my Bluetooth devices on linux?


The easiest way of controlling Bluetooth devices on a Linux host is by using the Bluez package which can be found at the below link:

It is natively supported from kernel 4.4 and by installing the bluez-utils package you can use the command line tool, bluetoothctl for configuring and pairing your Bluetooth.

Make sure that the bluetooth.service is running on your host device which can be checked with the command,

$ sudo systemctl status bluetooth.service

and started with,

$ sudo systemctl start bluetooth.service

In addition, make sure that the drivers are properly installed and loaded. Sometimes, WiFi drivers only include drivers for WLAN over PCI and an additional set of drivers are needed for Bluetooth to function in parallell over USB.

The package can support earlier kernel verision by backporting the package which supports the below basic features:

3.13 basic bluetooth classic and LE functionality

3.10 basic bluetooth classic

For basic troubleshooting, the Arch Linux wiki has a thorough guide at the following link:


What diagnostics information is needed when troubleshooting WiFi?


In order to ease the troubleshooting of technical problems and understand your end-product or application and its usage scenario we ask you to please provide the following information when creating a technical support ticket at:

Please give a detailed problem description and in what precise circumstances it is present.

Describe the host system:

-Hardware (system board, processor architecture, other peripheral devices...)

-Operating system with detailed versions (E.g. Windows version and build, Linux distribution, kernel version)

-Drivers used and versions (Linux: out-of-tree vendor drivers or in-kernel drivers?)

-Connection script and connection settings, including e.g. hostapd configuration

Details from the Wi-Fi module label:


-SKU/BOM or P/N code


For Linux systems, capture terminal logs from commands with sudo prefix:

uname –a

ifconfig -a


Iw list

lshw -c network

ip route

For PCIe devices:


lspci –vv

For USB devices:


lsusb -t

ls -l /dev/serial/by-id

ls -l /sys/bus/usb-serial/devices
