I'm using qubes (based on Fedora 25) that comes without bluetooth out of the box. Well I need to install it. How to do that?


What is your DE?

Blueman is pretty reliable. Check out Blueman and Blueman-applet if you want a tray icon.


  • What is DE and how to install blueman? – Mark Spencer Nov 20 '17 at 9:33
  • DE is a desktop environment. You install packages using your system's package manager. I believe Fedora currently uses dnf so you'd do something like dnf install blueman – PuzzledCuber Nov 20 '17 at 15:10
  • Thank you for your patience with me! I believe it is with xfce – Mark Spencer Nov 20 '17 at 16:35
  • Okay, that doesn't really change anything in this case. use dnf install blueman and blueman-applet If you run the application blueman-applet then you should see an applet in your DE. It'll be on the xfce bar. – PuzzledCuber Nov 20 '17 at 23:47
  • I finally installed it but it doesn't really work for some reason. ibb.co/fkaZUb – Mark Spencer Dec 8 '17 at 8:18
