    As you can see, this is a fresh installation of the latest edition of Ubuntu on a one year old Macbook Pro 14,1. I immediately downloaded Blueman as I've had good luck with that in the past on PCs running Linux Mint. When I use Blueman to turn on Bluetooth and then select "set up new device" I get a popup dialog box that tells me there are no adapters.

    It's not an issue with my adapter because this is a dual-boot machine and I can switch over to macOS right now and I use my Bluetooth devices so I'm thinking it must be a driver issue.

    Anyone have any experience with this or ideas on how I should proceed?

    You may have better success with help and advice at some of the Ubuntu forums if you haven't tried already.
