While Bluetooth technology is present in many modern devices and computers, the truth is that users do not use it as often as many would like. And although many operating systems like Ubuntu recognizes it very wellThe truth is that it is usually heavy to have the icon running out of battery or power and not use it.
So in this little guide we tell you how to turn off bluetooth in Ubuntu so that the system does not use it and does not spend as much energy. This little trick works for all computers with Ubuntu, whether laptops or desktops as well as for official flavors.
How to Remove Bluetooth |
Just open a terminal in root mode and type the following:
This will open the famous text editor with a system configuration file. At the end of this file we will see a text that says “exit 0”, before this text we must put the following:
rfkill block bluetooth
Once written, the text should look like the following image:
If so, we save the document and close it, once this is done, every time we restart the system, the bluetooth will not be charged with the consequent energy saving. If on the other hand we come across that we want to re-enable it, we just have to go in the same file and delete the text we added, We save it and ready, the bluetooth recharges. And if we want to activate and use it temporarily, in system settings we will have the option to use it temporarily, but once the computer is restarted it will return to its original state, i.e. deactivated.
Personally I’m not a big fan of bluetooth on the desktop computer, so I usually turn it off unless you want to listen to music for which I use bluetooth headphones. Anyway bluetooth, I usually get annoyed like many other users, but no more excuses to turn it off — don’t you think?
