Bluetooth support for Raspberry Pi 3



I have got a Raspberry Pi 3 and wanted to use the Bluetooth to connect a keyboard but cannot find anywhere to set up Bluetooth on Raspbian For Robots. I tried doing:

sudo apt-get install pi-bluetooth

but get an the following error:

Unable to locate package pi-bluetooth

I then tried installing the bluetooth package and I did get the blueman icon in the preferences menu but it does nothing.

How can I use the built in Bluetooth on Raspbian For Robots?

Many thanks,


Hey Dave,
We are still working on getting the bluetooth to working with our image. It’s still a work in progress. You can read more about it in another thread on the foums here:
