I`m using KDE Plasma 5

#### Step 1.

Open your terminal.

In the root directory run the command:

kate /etc/bluetooth/main.conf
#### Step 2.

Find the next line:

#ControllerMode = dual
Change "dual" to "bredr". The final code must be:

ControllerMode = bredr
After save(CTRL+S) ask for root password to make the changes!!!

#### Step 3.

Run the next command in a terminal:

sudo chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth
sudo /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth start
#### Step 4.

Go to your System Settings and enable bluetooth so it starts to look for bluetooth connections.

#### Step 5.

The next actions should be performed exactly as described:

1. Put your airpods (both) inside the case

2. Keep the cover opened

3. With cover opened and airpods inside the case press and hold the button on the back of the airpods case.

4. Hold the button until you see the light blinking on the front side of the case, it can also make a sound signaling that it is in pairing mode

#### Step 6.

If you need to open for example a youtube video on Firefox, make sure to check in `Pulse Audio Volume Control` the Output Devices and Playback is the airpod.

Gist Link also.
