This is just a short note to myself and all of you who might not get their Bluetooth running in the 2018.2 edition of Kali Linux.

Bluetooth does not seem to be installed with the default configuration of Kali Linux. To make it work, try the following:

  1. Install Bluetooth
    apt-get install bluetooth
  2. Enable Bluetooth permanently:
    systemctl enable bluetooth
  3. Start Bluetooth:
    service bluetooth start

Now Bluetooth should work. Try if it does after restart.

Btw: The image for this blog shows Harald Bluetooth, King of Norway and Denmark. He had nothing to do with this blogpost’s topic 😀
