    Hi
    I have installed an Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS virtual machine using Parallels Desktop. I wish to use a wireless Bluetooth Xbox One controller within this Ubuntu VM. I have connected my Xbox One controller to my MacBook (which works), and enabled "Share Bluetooth devices with Linux" in the USB & Bluetooth configuration. However, I am not able to find and use this controller in the Ubuntu VM. When I open the Bluetooth settings in the Ubuntu VM, it says "Bluetooth turned off", even if I toggle the Bluetooth on.
    My objective here is to write robot software in ROS, and control the robots using an Xbox controller.
    Does anyone know what might be the solution here? I have spent a lot of time searching on the web, but nothing has worked.
    Thanks!

    Hello! Any progress or conclusion on this? Having similar issue using Debian as a VM. Bluetooth is turned off and turning it on is ignored. The .Share bluetooth peripherals with Linux is properly checked...
    Merci!
    Daniel.
