Title: bluetooth pain
Post by: numbertheory345 on August 19, 2017, 01:10:26 pm
greetings peppermint forum

before i posted this, i did some research on my own, but i couldnt find a solution

im trying to connect my  bluetooth headset to my pc and everytime i click on the bluetooth manager, i get this error message:

Bluez daemon is not running, blueman-manager cannot continue.
This probably means that there were no Bluetooth adapters detected or Bluetooth daemon was not started


im running peppermint os 8

and my pc specs are:
Dell Latitude E6410 14.1" Standard Laptop - Intel Core i7 620M 1st Gen 2.67 GHz 8GB SODIMM DDR3 SATA 2.5" 320GB DVD-RW Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit

any help would be appreciated

thanks

Don't remember having any trouble on my Peppermint 7, but had to do the following on my daughter's Bodhi system;

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install bluez pulseaudio-module-bluetooth
Code: [Select]
service bluetooth restart
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install blueman
Reboot after this. Make sure vlc is sending the output to bluetooth and not to the speakers.

Good luck

Reinstalling may help
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --reinstall blueman bluetooth bluez pulseaudio-module-bluetoothbut if not, do you get any output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo /usr/lib/bluetooth/bluetoothdand if not, does the bluetooth-manager work now ? (BTW, this won't survive a reboot .. just trying to figure out if the daemon is failing to start or not even attempting to start)

I'm having the same problem as the OP on a Sony Vaio.

I tried this but the error persists:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --reinstall blueman bluetooth bluez pulseaudio-module-bluetooth
There is no output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo /usr/lib/bluetooth/bluetoothdBut this process keeps going, that is, if I try to close the terminal I get a message saying "There are running processes".

So when you try to fire up bluetooth manager, you're getting this error

If you run:
Code: [Select]
blueman-appletand leave that terminal open, are you now able to start the Bluetooth manager from the menu ?

No, the bluetooth manager doesn't open this way either. Stuff happens in the terminal, though:

Are you sure this E6410 has a bluetooth adapter card fitted ?

See here for how to use the diagnostics utility to check:

@VinDSL

It might be better to start another thread, this one is still active. ;)

And your bluetooth adapter is obviously present and detected.
