I have been trying to use Xubuntu 20.04 in VirtualBox (host = Windows 10) and the bluetooth icon would not show up on the toolbar. The function also cannot be used even when it says that Bluetooth is active in the terminal.
I've tried several things that I could find on Google--including disabling bluetooth in Windows before launching VM and then enabling it--but seeing that I have basically zero knowledge on Linux I'm not even sure if they're worth mentioning. One thing that is strange to me is that when I start the virtual machine, when it asks me to either "Try Ubuntu" or "Install," bluetooth works every time when I just use the try option (but then the whole thing is too slow to do what I wanted to do). Once it's installed virtually, it stops working even when the bluetooth device is checked under USB.
Does anyone know why this is and if it's solvable? I'm not sure what other info to include but I will update if given some direction.
I think I did install the GA:
lsmod | grep vbox
vboxsf 81920 0
vboxguest 348160 6 vboxsf
Also want to clarify that the bluetooth device is the laptop built-in device, not an USB adapter.
