Let’s say you’re device has a Bluetooth installed and wanna play around it with the terminal rather than a boring GUI which not so cool people do, you know what I’m saying geeks here like to play with the terminal right 🙂
Before start, make sure your device has a Bluetooth interface or else get a cheap USB Bluetooth dongle.
$ sudo apt install bluetooth
This will install bluetoothctl and bluetoothd.
Start the bluetooth service.
$ sudo service bluetooth start
$ sudo bluetoothctl [bluetooth] agent on [bluetooth] default-agent [bluetooth] scan on [bluetooth] devices [bluetooth] pair <bluetooth_mac_address>
If you’re pairing a Bluetooth keyboard, it will show a key to pair the keyboard. Type that key using the Bluetooth keyboard and press enter key to get paired. Finally,
[bluetooth] connect <bluetooth_mac_address>
