Rescuing Bluetooth on Linux: A Step-by-Step Guide for Using a Command to Fix Failures

I recently received a pair of speakers to review, but they didn’t work properly with my complex audio setup. I couldn’t use both inputs, and Bluetooth wasn’t working either. But thankfully, my Linux machine allowed me to fix the Bluetooth issue using the “bluetoothctl” command. To achieve this, I first installed Bluez using the appropriate command based on my distribution, and then enabled “bluetoothctl”. After scanning for nearby devices, I could then connect to my speakers through the GUI tool. This workaround isn’t perfect, but it’s a reliable way to resolve Bluetooth problems. I’ll also be sharing my speaker review soon.
