Blueman removal possible? YES (Solved)
« on: October 19, 2016, 04:49:31 am »
How can I remove Blueman and is there anything I should be alerted to before removing?
Are there dependancies related to networking which would affect ethernet or wifi or anything else for that matter?
How to check?  ???

This laptop doesn't have bluetooth but is installed by default. (my pet hate in a PC is excess baggage ;))
Note: The blueman applet doesn't run at startup in 'Default applications for LXSessions' and everything works as intended.

TIA

Blueman removal possible?

To help us help you, ALL new requests for technical support should include basic system information.

If you haven't already done so, please open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run the following command:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
then copy what was returned in the terminal and post it back here.

This was an automated response but please don't ignore it, providing this information now is highly likely to save time for both you and any prospective respondents and aid in the diagnosis of your problem  .. Thanks in advance :)

Note - Please rest assured there is nothing in the output from that command that could be construed as a 'security risk', the '-z' option makes sure of that by filtering out your MAC address.

Hi acer,

If you go back to the main page and search for "remove Blueman"

Hi acer,

There is nothing to worry about. Follow the tips in one of the links that zebedeeboss gave. There will be no adverse effects upon your networking capabilities with either wireless or wired internet connectivity/speed.

Thanks Zeb & Slim,
Done a quick search earlier also but, you've found what I was looking for (see below)
Bye Bye Bluetooth  ;D

Don't you just love getting rid of excess baggage..

OK, if you don't want bluetooth at all, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge blueman bluez
then
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
when a file opens that already has some stuff in it, addd a single NEW line at the bottom that reads:-

blacklist bluetooth

SAVE the file and exit gedit.

REBOOT.

Now post the output from:
Code: [Select]
lsmod | grep bluetooth

Code: [Select]
lsmod | grep bluetooth
displays NOTHING!  ;D ;D

ok, further to this, I've just checked Synaptic to find two files relating to bluetooth as follows:

blues-obexdlibbluetooth3

Are these safe to remove also?  ???

Hi acer,

That one is beyond my meagre knowledge, hopefully someone will be along soon to answer.

Do a simulated uninstall and see what the system says will be uninstalled

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove -s bluez-obexd libbluetooth3

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove -s bluez-obexd
