Bluetooth not working

Hi together,


I installed EndevourOS on my neighbors old 2008 iMac DualCore with 4GB RAM and Bluetooth is not working.


*** Background information:

Operating System: EndeavourOS
KDE Plasma Version: 5.23.4
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.88.0
Qt Version: 5.15.2
Kernel Version: 5.15.7-arch1-1 (64-bit)
Graphics Platform: X11
Processors: 2 × Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU E8135 @ 2.40GHz
Memory: 3.8 GiB of RAM
Graphics Processor: AMD RV610

*** "lsmod |grep blue" outputs:

crc16                  16384  2 bluetooth,ext4


*** "systemctl status bluetooth" outputs:

Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0a5c:4500 Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub (part of BCM2046 Bluetooth)


But when I use bluetoothctl and enter "power on" it only outputs "No default controller available". Same for scan on and whatever. Also no device turns up in KDE connect.

I had it already working on an much older Linux Arch install, but after the HDD broke down I put a fresh linux and now it doesn't.



Does anyone have an idea what to do next? I am out of ideas and would be grateful for some steps to analyze the problem.

Hope to get some help

Re: Bluetooth not working

Possibly the problem can be caused by "pipewire". Check with

LANG=C pactl info | grep '^Server Name'

if the output is "PulseAudio (On PipeWire 0.3.xx)".

Then the package libspa-0.2-bluetooth is missing.
