    There is no command associated with it.

    Hi
    If it's not there, then you need to install it. It also needs to be run as root user.

    There is not a single program in any of the repositories named rkill.

    Ah, sorry about the typo, it is rfkill. I guess I need to proofread.

    Hi
    So if you run the command;
    Code:
    hcitool scan
    Do you see your bluetooth enabled device? Are you trying to connect to a mouse, phone or other device?

    I have found with my bluetooth mouse and the Gnome DE, that I need to run the above command numerous times until it appears in the command line scan, then at that point it will connect via the GUI tool. My blackberry doesn't have these issues and connects straight away.

    I am trying to connect with a phone.
    "hcitool scan" doesnt find any mobile.The only command that worked was "hcitool name" as I got the bluetooth address from my phoone.
