Installing Bluetooth (Arch Linux)
This section describes the procedure for installing a bluetooth device on Arch Linux.
Some machines may require a bluetooth dongle. Note that devices that work in 'embedded' mode appear as USB devices. HCI devices appear as bluetooth devices.
Install the bluez and bluez-utils packages.
pacman -S bluez bluez-utils modprobe btusb
Start and enable the services
systemctl start bluetooth.service systemctl enable bluetooth.service
The above command returns bluetoothctl prompt.
