[SOLVED] bluetooth not working. No controller found.

 bluetoothctl 

get stuck on "Waiting to connect to bluetoothd..." . Tried it with and without sudo, enabled and started bluetooth as well. Still no progress.

privileged@arched ~]$ sudo systemctl status bluetooth
● bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
     Active: inactive (dead)
       Docs: man:bluetoothd(8)

Mar 26 01:25:17 arched systemd[1]: Condition check resulted in Bluetooth service being skipped.
Mar 26 01:26:03 arched systemd[1]: Condition check resulted in Bluetooth service being skipped.
Mar 26 01:36:55 arched systemd[1]: Condition check resulted in Bluetooth service being skipped.

Bluetooth was working fine on the previous arch install on the same system from the same boot drive.
To get around this, I found using the following command workes but I have to use it after every boot.

modprobe btusb
systemctl start bluetooth

After this, I get "Agent registered" but power on outputs "No default controller available" and list doesn't output anything.

[privileged@arched ~]$ sudo bluetoothctl
Agent registered
[bluetooth]# power on
No default controller available
[bluetooth]# list
[bluetooth]# 

Bluetooth status after this changes to;

[root@arched privileged]# systemctl status bluetooth

From here I have no idea what to do. Most of the threads on the forums use hcitools and some other bash commands that have been decommissioned from what I have read on the arch wiki.

I am using Dell inspiron N4010 with arch linux and xfce 4.16 and my the latest linux kernal 5.11.10-arch1-1

Here's output to some scary looking stuff that people from other threads asked for.

Yeah I tried that. Didn't work. But what worked was the thing above it, "This might also be caused by power saving measures, in which case adding the kernel parameter btusb.enable_autosuspend=n is a potential solution". I didn't do it at first because I didn't get what a kernel parameter is or how to change it. But I saw someone on another thread add the

 btusb.enable_autosuspend=n 

  in the grub configurations. Which worked for me.

From what I can tell the grub configurations are not the same as kernal parameters. Or even if it is I think that they should add the detail about adding this in the grub.d in the arch wiki that you linked.

Do you know where I can check how or why this worked? Or why it was broken in the first place? This really conserns me.

No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan

Like I said already, I read it. The entire thing. I know people don't read the wiki and it really frustrates you good helpful folks so I spent a lot of time reading a lot of wikis and tried making sense of everything I could. So I am sorry but I just don't really appreciate the condescending tone there.

It already is...

Again the same as before, maybe I missed something. It can totally happen and I apologise if that is the case. But the wiki stated "To make the change persistent after reboot, you could manually edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg with the exact line from above, but the best practice is to:
Edit /etc/default/grub and append your kernel options between the quotes in the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line:

 GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

Which did not solve the problem in my case. Mine was solved by adding the kernal parameter

 GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=btusb.enable_autosuspend=n 

But it doesn't matter. I got my bluetooth working. So thanks for your help and Have a good one. Cheers!  (:
