Bluetooth is not working anymore

Hello, I got some newbie issues going on with the bluetooth, it used to work properly until I merged the old config file with the .pacnew one. Now whatever I try to do it does not start anymore. I try to give you as many details as possible.

uname -r
5.4.65-1-lts
 lsmod
Module                  Size      Used by
bluetooth             679936  16 btrtl,btintel,btbcm,bnep,btusb
systool -v -m btusb
Module = "btusb"

  Attributes:
    coresize            = "65536"
    initsize            = "0"
    initstate           = "live"
    refcnt              = "0"
    srcversion          = "3CD7BE023732358B4F20408"
    taint               = ""
    uevent              = <store method only>
    version             = "0.8"

  Parameters:
    disable_scofix      = "N"
    enable_autosuspend  = "Y"
    force_scofix        = "N"
    reset               = "Y"

  Sections:
modprobe -c | grep btusb
options btusb reset=1
modprobe --show-depends btusb
modprobe: FATAL: Module btusb not found in directory /lib/modules/5.4.65-1-lts

I tried to understand the problem looking into the bluetooth wiki page, although, I'm thinking that I cannot fully get if the problem lies under the 'module not loaded' side, if someone can give me an hint it would be much appreciated, thanks guys.

Re: Bluetooth is not working anymore

The package installed is linux-lts 5.4.66-1 while the running kernel is 5.4.65-1-lts.  Was /boot not mounted when you updated the kernel package?
Edit:
Or did you not reboot after the kernel update?

Probably the last assumption is correct, it could be that I forgot to reboot the system after updating. Please tell me that it's possible to be fixed

EDIT: With the daily update it seems that the installed package and the running kernel are the same version now

Still, the bluetooth isn't working, are maybe these warnings about time mismatch related with the issue?

Re: Bluetooth is not working anymore

Can you load the btusb module now the versions match?  Exactly which config file did you merge?

First of all I tried to check if it was already loaded with modinfo, this is the output

As long as I understand, under vermagic it says mod_unload, which makes me think it is not loaded, then I tried to load the module with #modprobe btusb, but the output of modinfo is always the same.


The file I merged some weeks ago was /etc/bluetooth/main.conf, basically I held the .pacnew version which now is this

Re: Bluetooth is not working anymore

Use lsmod to check if a module is loaded.  modinfo examines the module on disk.

Re: Bluetooth is not working anymore

I really don't understand why it doesn't work, checked again all the steps from the wiki page, moreover, today there was an update of gnome bluetooth, yet the situation it's not changed.

Re: Bluetooth is not working anymore

This may be an unnecessary question, but, even though your BT service is active, is your controller powered on?

I tried with bluetoothctl and when I send the 'show' command this is the output

[bluetooth]# show
No default controller available

Is this the problem?

Edit: Maybe this can help

Yes, it is, you need a controller to send/receive without it 'no Bluetooth'

Please show 'lsusb' or/and 'lspci'
and
'rfkill list all'

Re: Bluetooth is not working anymore

Looks like this is a 2 in one(WIFI+BT) device.
Have you installed the 'linux-firmware'?

It used to work properly once. BTW, yes I have the 'linux-firmware' installed. Furthermore, I had a look at the page you suggested and even with the creation of iwlwifi.conf with its option nothing has changed.

As we understood before I'm missing a default controller, can you give me an hand trying to get one?

Re: Bluetooth is not working anymore

Could be it's a problematic device, could you try and use 'btmgmt - /usr/bin/btmgmt' to check the device?

/usr/bin/btmgmt
info
config

'Info' probably shows nothing, 'config' hopefully shows a non configured BT device;)

edit: 'btmgmt' is part of 'bluez-utils' - which should be installed anyway...

Re: Bluetooth is not working anymore

Im having the same issue. It was working fine for very long time, but something with the lastest update broke something. I still havent figured out whats causing this issue. My headset connects and 1 second later disconnects.


Its a sick world we live in....

@aRcHaTe, that's a completely different issue, OP is missing his controller and cannot connect at all...

As your suspects pointed out... it seems to be unconfigured

Re: Bluetooth is not working anymore

Well no, not exactly, what I was 'hoping' for would be  'Unconfigured index list with 1 items'.
But, the device seems completely invisible, almost that is because your 'lsusb' clearly shows one...

You can still try a different port or try a different kernel.
If you have no positive result with that too , than I'm out of ideas ATM...

Re: Bluetooth is not working anymore

I tried all the available kernels, although the result was always the same, just as if nothing had changed

I have a question though, what did you mean with 'try a different port'?

Re: Bluetooth is not working anymore

...lsusb

...

A different USB port, but, in case of a combined device this would may not be possible at all, even though it's showing itself as USB device...

A different USB port, but, in case of a combined device this would may not be possible at all, even though it's showing itself as USB device...

Yeah, unfortunately it's the integrated card of the laptop, not a usb device. I'm done, I'll try to boot from a live distro and if the bluetooth works fine there I probably will reinstall everything. I just have to figure out how to make a proper backup in order to reduce this pain in the ass.
