  1. I typed the command “sudo vi /etc/bluetooth/main.conf” in terminal and after entering my password I get a list of settings but I can’t change any of it. I can’t type anything after this either. What can I do? I have no experience with this but it is interesting and fun please help me lol

    • After you run the command ‘sudo vi /etc/bluetooth/main.conf’ it will open the file in vi editor in command mode. You will not be able to type anything in the file in this mode. To make changes to it, you need to press ‘i’ key to change it to insert mode. Then type the changes you want. Once you have made the changes, hit Esc key and then enter ‘:wq’ to save changes. You can google ‘vi editor commands’ for more information.
