    Bluetooth is disabled by default in Kali you have to enable it first

    First I ran "rfkill list" to insure there were no blocks.

    Two things I learned, Kali detects my bluetooth and there are no blocks in place. Good.
    So I run the code, "/etc/init.d/bluetooth status" and got the output failed. So I then run the code, "/etc/init.d/bluetooth start" and got a response that bluetooth is now started.
    However, I did not see the bluetooth icon I was expecting in the task manager.

    So, "apt-get install bluetooth" this installed a bunch of packages that were missing. Still no icon, then I had to, "apt-get install bluedevil". Finally able to get the GUI Icon I've been looking for. From there I was able to find my Device (an android phone) and successfully pair with it. Unfortunately I was not able to send or receive files. The Syslog kept showing what errors, but nothing straight forward as how to repair or fix the situation. Had to use my good friend Google, Not exactly sure where I found the fix, (cause I looked at so many pages) but in short, this is what I had to do to get it working properly:

    1. edit /etc/bluetooth/main.conf ---> and add
    Code:
    DisablePlugins=pnat
    to disable the plugin. (Apparently this has caused many problems for others, though not sure if it is necessary to add or not.)

    2. in a terminal use the following commands:
    Code:
    touch /etc/bluetooth/link_key
    chmod 644 /etc/bluetooth/link_key
    /etc/init.d/bluetooth restart
    After that did a reboot of the machine, and now bluetooth is working properly. From their I added it to the startup scripts (optional) as if not you will have to issue the command to start it manually.
