Bluetooth Issue: "No default controller available"

Hello all,

I tried to add the bluetooth on my laptop. But I have several issue.
Here what I do;

Package installed:

extra/bluez 5.40-1
    Daemons for the bluetooth protocol stack
extra/bluez-firmware 1.2-8
    Firmwares for Broadcom BCM203x and STLC2300 Bluetooth chips
extra/bluez-hid2hci 5.40-1
    Put HID proxying bluetooth HCI's into HCI mode
extra/bluez-libs 5.40-1
    Deprecated libraries for the bluetooth protocol stack
extra/bluez-utils 5.40-1
    Development and debugging utilities for the bluetooth protocol stack
extra/gnome-bluetooth 3.20.0-1
    The GNOME Bluetooth Subsystem

Before evreything:

modprobe btusb
systemctl start bluetooth

With the command dmesg, I see the bluetooth:

[ 1435.113805] Bluetooth: Core ver 2.21
[ 1435.113824] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized
[ 1435.113827] Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized
[ 1435.113829] Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized
[ 1435.113833] Bluetooth: SCO socket layer initialized
[ 1461.096170] Bluetooth: BNEP (Ethernet Emulation) ver 1.3
[ 1461.096175] Bluetooth: BNEP filters: protocol multicast
[ 1461.096180] Bluetooth: BNEP socket layer initialized

And lsmod:

bluetooth             454656  11 bnep,btbcm,btrtl,btusb,btintel
rfkill                 20480  6 cfg80211,bluetooth
crc16                  16384  2 ext4,bluetooth

But nothing in lsub

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub

Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

When I start bluetoothctl:

# bluetoothctl 
[bluetooth]# agent KeyboardOnly 
Agent registered
[bluetooth]# default-agent 
Default agent request successful
[bluetooth]# scan on
No default controller available

And rfkill list return nothing.

I really need help, please. I don't know what can I do.

Thanks
Nodauf

Re: Bluetooth Issue: "No default controller available"

Back up a few steps.   This is a USB adapter.  Is integral to the system, or can you plug and unplug it?
Assuming it is a plugable device,  what gets added to the journal when you connect the device.  I am not encouraged by the device not showing up in the output of lsusb

Thank you for your reply.
It's not a USB adapter. It's integral to the system.

Re: Bluetooth Issue: "No default controller available"

Okay, your Bluetooth comes from the Centrino Wireless-N 2230.

What is the output of lspci -k -s 02:00.0

Re: Bluetooth Issue: "No default controller available"

That looks about right.  Working from memory, that is the driver on my HP Envy which uses the Intel 3160 system (also a combo Bluetooth/wifi).

Inside the bluetoothctl shell, what is the response to power on   ?

Re: Bluetooth Issue: "No default controller available"

The output is the same as scan on: "No default controller available"

I don't no if it's important but I use the wifi (I've also tried to disconnect my wifi).

Re: Bluetooth Issue: "No default controller available"

Did bluetooth work before on a different OS?  No bluetooth is being found and with Intel wifi it should be listed in lsusb results.  Not all wifi cards have bluetooth.  This could be a timing issue with xhci being enabled for USB 3.0 support.

Is it is easy to access the wifi card, look at the sticker on it.  Does it have a WFM and BDM on the sticker?  WFM is the wifi MAC and BDM is the bluetooth MAC

http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/pu … -brief.pdf

That card is a PCI-e (2 lane, I think) combo WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 (including BLE)
USB is not in the picture.

Edit:
http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ … 05511.html

Note that the correct driver is being pulled in.

Re: Bluetooth Issue: "No default controller available"

Okay, how about the output of journalctl -b | grep Bluetooth
?

Re: Bluetooth Issue: "No default controller available"

Very strange. I've start my laptop with "share connection" on USB of my smartphone and the bluetooth is enable without any action.
rfkill list see hci0,...

the output of the command journalctl -b | grep Bluetooth

Hint: You are currently not seeing messages from other users and the system.
      Users in groups 'adm', 'systemd-journal', 'wheel' can see all messages.
      Pass -q to turn off this notice.

It's the output but it's works. Tomorrow, I will post the output without starting the laptop with "share connection" of my smartphone.

Do you have an idea of this issue?

Re: Bluetooth Issue: "No default controller available"

Oh, wait.  Your user is not in the group wheel.  First, that means you see a truncated journal.  It might also mean you cannot get access to the Bluetooth stuff (not sure about that, though)
Try adding yourself to wheel, log out and back in and try it.  Also, do you not have sudo set up?  I highly recommend it.

Re: Bluetooth Issue: "No default controller available"

This happens to me only after waking up. Put system to sleep/suspend, wake up -> No default controller found. I have AutoEnable=true.
Bluetooth can be found after restart.

I started the bluetooth service and searched for devices.

Okay, the

Re: Bluetooth Issue: "No default controller available"

Same problem here on a Razer Blade Stealth Late 2016.

Unfortunately the rfkill trick doesn't work for me.

I noticed the bluetooth firmware couldn't be loaded randomly after some system suspends (see the last line)

In this case, the only thing to do (else than restarting your whole system), is to hot remove and reload the kernel module

rmmod btusb
modprobe btusb

And here you are, back in the game :

Re: Bluetooth Issue: "No default controller available"

I am sorry for resurrecting this dead topic, but I have just faced the same problem as TC. I did not see my hci0 device at all (neither in rfkill, nor in bleutoothctl). The root of the problem was that my bluetooth adapter was disabled in BIOS. In some sense this topic helped me discover this:

Closing.
