Disabling Bluetooth in Ubuntu

You can disable bluetooth in Ubuntu (and probably other Linux distros too!) by running the following command:

sudo /usr/sbin/hciconfig hci0 down

To disable bluetooth on startup, put that in the /etc/rc.local file (without the sudo of course). If your system complains that hciconfig isn’t found, install the bluez-utils package.
