Blueberry, the new Linux Mint Bluetooth configuration tool

blue bluetooth

El Bluetooth support on Linux It arrived much later than in Windows and to tell the truth when it did it was quite rudimentary, although later it improved greatly and a fairly good integration with the different desktops (GNOME, KDE, Unity) was achieved. However, those who use these devices a lot tend to emphasize that the agility of use of these configuration tools is far from ideal.

That is why there are still projects to try to improve this and this is how it arrives Blueberry, the new Bluetooth connectivity tool developed by Linux Mint that will make its premiere in LMDE 2 (Linux Mint Debian Edition 2) and that will slowly be integrated into all the desktops that are included in this distro that is among the most popular. Not only that, but just as we comments Clement Lefebvre from his blog, then it can be used in other distros as well.

Among the advantages that it will bring to the users of Linux Mint (and then everyone in general) we can mention that of simplify the configuration of Bluetooth devices to the extreme such as keyboards, mice and headphones, in addition to displaying in a more orderly and efficient way the information of each of the devices that are connected to a computer or that have been in the past and that remain 'linked' to it.

Blueberry is by no means a new Bluetooth management layer Rather, it is a frontend for gnome-bluetooth, a tool that has already existed for a long time but, as we mentioned at the beginning, lacks designs that allow users a simple and agile use to configure their devices, and that will adapt automatically to the desktop that the user has installed on their computer, to launch the corresponding configuration tools.

    I, with Blueberry, in Linux Mint have not been able to pair a Sony speaker. I have installed Blueman (which I use in MX linux) and, although it took a while, I was able to do it.
