Disable Bluetooth for good

Good day to all,
I accidentally enabled Bluetooth on install. How can I undo this? I could not find any entry about Bluetooth in the various autostart files in Home and unchecking the "do-not-autostart" in the blueman applet does not do any good. If I modifiy the /etc/bluetooth/main.config the BT applet still loads in Openbox.
Thanks for your help.
Cheers
Patrick

You can stop it auto-starting by removing the blueman.desktop file from /etc/xdg/autostart/

Copy it somewhere first in case you ever want it back.

Thank you for your help. The /etc/xdg/autostart/ did the trick.
Works like charm and speedy as a road runner. Can't wait to see the new version Bullseye.

Just a follow up, you can usually (I think, I can on my laptop) completely disable Bluetooth right from the BIOS.


You know, you used to be a nice guy once.

Mine too, but it tends to be more convenient to disable the auto-start, & still have the option to start it on the rare occasions it's needed by triggering the .desktop file or running the command it executes than it is to reboot to BIOS/EFI & then reboot again back to your OS.

I miss when laptops often had a physical switch to turn it off for battery life reasons.
