Xubuntu 18.04: Bluetooth OFF by default

Post by ^rooker »

I'm very happy that recent kernels support bluetooth chipsets properly out of the box! Hooray!
But, I like to have bluetooth disabled after boot - and only turn it on manually on demand. Especially on notebooks.

On recent Xubuntu 18.04, the following command disables that the bluetooth service starts on boot:

Code: Select all

$ systemctl disable bluetooth.service
That's it.
Now you should still see the bluetooth icon in the panel, but turned off by default.
:D
Jumping out of an airplane is not a basic instinct. Neither is breathing underwater. But put the two together and you're traveling through space!
