Well first run it as a live environment to make sure it works with your hardware. If so, it would be easier to reinstall as it may be more of a pain to revert.

Forget the headset, make sure the bluetooth is functional on the computer first.

One last question, if I may. How does one know if an adaptor will work for Linux or not?

Well you could google it, that is how I always do verify compatibility. Most will work on linux nowdays though.

Ok! Because I just saw that the one you suggested said;



【Plug & play or free driver】 – plug and play for Win 8, Win 8. 1, and win 10. Supports Win7/XP (driver required for Win7/XP and could be downloaded from website free of charge). it is not compatible with Mac, Linux, TV

That is wrong. Just search the reviews for linux:

 

Plugged this into my PC running Linux (kernel 5.4.3) and it automatically detected it without needing to install any drivers or reboot.
