Before Loki I used to do- apt-get remove-indicator-Bluetooth and it used to work fine but now if I do this whole wing panel get displayed. For my purpose, I don't use Bluetooth at all and I think if I can remove the indicator it would be good. Please let me know if I can remove this icon. Thanks

  • I've also tried: sudo apt-get remove wingpanel-indicator-bluetooth And as OP had said, after rebooting the system the whole wing panel disappears. Can someone provide a solution to this? Thank you. Commented May 30, 2018 at 19:38

To remove the Bluetooth indicator, I believe the package you are looking for is 'wingpanel-indicator-bluetooth' which, once removed, will remove the indicator for you. In terminal, you can:

sudo apt-get remove wingpanel-indicator-bluetooth

That should do it for you.

Good Luck!!!

  • problem is, this will remove entire wing panel!

  • I tested the above command in both a Virtual Machine setting as well as in a Live Session booting from USB and in neither instance was the Wingpanel removed.
