    Bluetooth on old laptop 4.18.0-kali2-amd64 Solve.

    I'm running an 5 yrs old laptop Dell Vostro 1015 "Intel Core 2 Duo" and found out last week that bluetooth is not working and my thought was there's missing a driver and need to be manually downloaded I spent many days / hours looking for the right one and perhaps I found the right solution, open your source list then add this: deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/bluetooth/bluez/ubuntu bionic main

    After adding it to your source lists run the following code:

    Code:
    apt-get-update
    apt-get full-upgrade
    Or you can manually download directly at : http://ppa.launchpad.net/bluetooth/b.../binary-amd64/
    But I still prefer the first one as it works easily.

    And now my bluetooth is working.

    You should have tried 4.19 before: apt update && apt dist-upgrade.

    Adding other repos is not recommended and will likely break your kali, sooner or later.
