i have installed ubuntu 12.10 recently and also installed mate desktop 1.6 .....my problem is when i plug-in my usb bluetooth device ..no bt manager or applet appears on my mate panels ( my bt device is working in unity environment )... may be mate bluetooth manager is not installed or activated...

please help me solve this as i love the mate desktop because of my background as a windows user.


  • Look for the mate-bluetooth package in the package manager; was it installed? – Mike C. Jun 3 '13 at 15:03
  • I can't find that package. What do I do? – John Scott Oct 31 '14 at 22:22
sudo apt-get install mate-bluetooth

I believe its part of the mate-desktop-environment-extra meta package, which rarely gets mentioned in MATE installation howtos hence why its probabley not in your install.
