I want to send files from my phone to my Laptop and vice versa through Bluetooth. But the Bluetooth on my system doesn't work. When I turn on the Bluetooth switch in System Settings > Bluetooth, nothing happens and also the visibility switch on the right hand side is always disabled.
rfkill list is as follows:
0: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 1: hp-wifi: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 2: hp-bluetooth: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
dmesg | grep Blue is as follows:
[ 29.519992] Bluetooth: Core ver 2.21 [ 29.520012] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized [ 29.520016] Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized [ 29.520019] Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized [ 29.520025] Bluetooth: SCO socket layer initialized [ 54.305795] Bluetooth: BNEP (Ethernet Emulation) ver 1.3 [ 54.305799] Bluetooth: BNEP filters: protocol multicast [ 54.305804] Bluetooth: BNEP socket layer initialized
I don't know if the drivers were installed or not and I don't know how to check it either.
Any idea what the issue is?
