All is fine but i have a new device discover : bluetooth
Home assistant can’t finish the installation

Hello @Nicolas_D

I will try to replicate this issue on my side and check.

Are you unable to setup home assistant after your first installation itself ?

I was able to configure home assistant without problem, but the bluetooth does not work
I get a “configuration failed” error message.

@Nicolas_D I have identified the issue, the OS doesn’t have bluetooth enabled.
At the moment you can fix this with:

$ sudo apt install bluez

reboot your device and the service should work.


Thanks, but wher can i enter “$ sudo apt install bluez” ?

on my terminal session i have “sudo : command not found”

Please try:

sudo apt install bluez

same message…:frowning:
the “$” is put by the terminal session.

Home assistant is not able to finish installation just because it found a Bluetooth device ?

I don’t think that’s possible. Installation must be facing another issue.

I get such message all the time on my hass but it never stops installations or boot.

Have you check for similar issue on home assistant forum?

Sorry just read all the post.

Looks like you need bluez or something else.

You need to open terminal and enter

sudo apt install bluez

Which user are you logged in to?


I am logged in under admin

yes i need bluez but when i open terminal and enter sudo apt install bluez i get an error message
bash: sudo: command not found

@Nicolas_D that seems very odd, I just ran it on my side and verified it works.

can you run without sudo ?

no, same message…
in fact, i think that the path is not ok
or the package bluez is not on my Vim1s

Hello everybody,

I have the same issue as Nicolas. Do you have any solution for me?

Thank you in advance for your support.

Kind Regards

same problem here

You’ll need to connect to the VIM1S via ssh first when using terminal within Home Assistant by running:

ssh root@192.168.X.X (VIM1S IP)


ssh root@khadas.local

then input the root password for the VIM1S (default is: khadas). Then you can input your command to install bluetooth. Follow this up with a reboot and HA should start correctly.

reboot now

Thanks, it worked perfectly.
now bluetooth appears in my home assistant integrations but it is not visible to my phone
there are no more errors on the integration but “this device have no entity”
