I am new to Qubes OS. I don’t see any Bluetooth dongle in my settings. Or how to use Bluetooth?
@Refat, welcome to the Community! I’m glad you decided to try Qubes OS.
There are a few existing discussions on how to use Bluetooth:
I’m really new to Qubes and have been looking for a while with painly efforts to enable my built-in bluetooth USB device (Intel Corp. Bluetooth 9460/9560 JfP) on my laptop (ROG Zephyrus GX501GI). My templates are based on Debian11 and the built-in USB keyboard device of my laptop is on the same bus as my bluetooth device.
First of all, I’m fully aware of the risk implications that this would cause and I am fine with it. The only mouse I’ve available is my bluetooth mouse and I really…
Hi, I’m trying to make a final judgement on the functionality and the safety considerations of putting a bluetooth daemon inside of
sys-audio in order to stream sound to an external bluetooth sink.
Is this a functional approach to getting your sound streamed? Are there any issues that come up that make it impractical or not-what-you-want?
What are the safety considerations of this? Assuming bluetooth is compromised how much of a risk are you taking? Does sys-audio only get data from other …
After I upgraded from the Fedora 34 template to Fedora 36, my Bluetooth device disappeared. I checked
in sys-usb, and this showed some Bluetooth errors. Googling those errors showed I needed a newer kernel. So I tried to use the kernel installed inside the VM, for both sys-usb and the target VM I wanted to use Bluetooth in.
However, now the situation is worse because, although sys-usb is able to detect Bluetooth, I am no longer able to attach any USB devices to other VMs at all…
I am using a Librem 14 with Qubes and am unable to get dom0, sys-usb (or any Qube for that matter) to successfully detect my built in Bluetooth device when it is activated via kill switch.
The bluetooth device is activated using the same switch as the camera, and when I flip the switch the camera device appears in my device list on my desktop UI as well as in sys-usb when I run “lsusb” from the terminal, however no Bluetooth device appears in either of these lists.
Does anyone know…
I’ve reviewed the the documentation and searched the forums and reddit extensively but I’ve yet to find out how or if qubes can support a wireless mouse and keyboard via bluetooth. I’m aware that it may have security implications. Is it possible through usb-qube with networking enabled? If so, does anyone mind pointing me in the right direction?
and probably more.
You could try following the advises there, and in case you have any problems, do not hesitate to ask for more details.
All method’s not working!
Do you get any errors? Or do you need any clarification about the needed steps or their security implications?
my main problem is i don’t show where is my Bluetooth dongle! or how can i connect it to my VM!
Are you using a USB keyboard? Do you have a sys-usb qube? All USB devices are normally connected to the latter by default. Do you see the dongle in Qubes Devices widget?
By default, sys-usb is created during the installation unless you are using a USB keyboard or boot your Qubes from a USB device. If you have no sys-usb qube, it means all your USB devices are connected to dom0, which is
not very secure.
Do you see your Bluetooth in dom0? Try
lsusb command there in the terminal.
Yes, when I use this command in dom0 then I can see my Bluetooth device
Are you willing to use it inside dom0 despite the security implications? You probably would have to perform the
steps from my above post there.
No I don’t, but how can solve sys-usb qube problem
We need more information to help you with that. You never replied to my questions about the keyboard and from where you boot your Qubes OS. Which hardware are you using?
There was a problem when I install Qubes. In the last moment it show me sys-net unable to reset then I click ok and then it finished.so I don’t know the OS installed correctly or not.And I don’t use USB for boot
sys-net unable to reset
This is unrelated to Bluetooth (unless you combined
sys-usb. Did you? There was a tick during the installation).
I don’t see why you have no sys-usb. You did not reply about your laptop model.
I use PC Asus motherboard and USB Bluetooth
Change the sys-usb qube template from fedora-36 to fedora-36-xfce
I don’t have sys-usb qube
So you are using a desktop PC? It seems you do have a USB keyboard, which is why the sys-usb was not created automatically.
don’t have sys-usb qube
You can create one:
Yes, Now I have sys-USB Qube. What’s next?
