I recently got a Raspberry Pi Zero W and loaded Kali Linux onto it.
I want to get the build in bluetooth working however I can't open the bluetooth manager. Originally it said there was an issue with bluez daemon but I then did some research and found that
systemctl status bluetooth.service said bluetooth was inactive(dead).
modprobe btusb, enabling and starting bluetooth this became active.
When I then try to click on the bluetooth manager application nothing happens, no window opens or anything.
I then updated my system with
sudo apt full-upgrade -y , this took a long time and required multiple re-logins. It didn't make a difference, I then tried opening it in terminal with
bluetooth-manager, this told me that blueman applet needs to be running.
So I try running
blueman-applet in terminal and this said
gi.repository.GLib.Error: g-io-error-quark: The connection is closed (18)
That is as far as I have gotten. It appears to be a problem in a python file and it may be in an unreadable directory, but I have not moved any files whatsoever since a brand new boot of kali.
All I want to do is get bluetooth running but it seems to be problem after problem. I have also tried reinstalling blueman and bluez and restarting bluetooth and the raspberry pi.
I am brand new to Linux with about a days experience so if it is possible to keep things simple and just tell me what to type into terminal if you know what the problem is, I would really appreciate it.
