current and Bluettoth


Hi all
I have just installed a fresh version of Slackware current with kernel 4.19.19
Everything fine except .. Bluetooth !

KDE says it has no adaptator !

Nevertheless I see in dmesg :

root@pegase:~# dmesg | fgrep Bluetooth
[ 5.868283] Bluetooth: Core ver 2.22
[ 5.868296] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized
[ 5.868299] Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized
[ 5.868300] Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized
[ 5.868303] Bluetooth: SCO socket layer initialized
[ 5.895095] Bluetooth: hci0: Firmware revision 0.1 build 39 week 43 2018
[ 23.050510] Bluetooth: BNEP (Ethernet Emulation) ver 1.3
[ 23.050513] Bluetooth: BNEP filters: protocol multicast
[ 23.050518] Bluetooth: BNEP socket layer initialized

So why KDE does not see it ?

rfkill
ID TYPE DEVICE SOFT HARD
0 wlan phy0 débloqué débloqué
1 wlan dell-wifi débloqué débloqué
2 bluetooth dell-bluetooth débloqué débloqué
3 bluetooth hci0 débloqué débloqué

Everything seems clear !

Inside KDE, I have a Bluetooth menu saying that Bluettoth is desactivated : but impossible to clic to activate it !

It appears you have 2 bluetooth adapters.

I saw you are on current. How did you install it?

You can install 14.2, and then change mirrors and go to current. You can also install from Alienbob's live iso's.

I did the first, and you wind up with KDE4. I would bet if you installed from Alienbob's iso's you are using KDE5. Which is it?

For me, bluetooth has always been a lot of purple smoke and mirrors.

By any chance have you set the system up with a 'pure alsa' configuration? You need Pulse to run bluetooth.

Could you run the command 'lsmod | grep blue' as root and post the results.

Here is what I see loaded:

Quote:
lsmod | grep blue
bluetooth 405504 37 btrtl,btintel,btbcm,bnep,btusb,rfcomm
ecdh_generic 24576 1 bluetooth
rfkill 28672 6 bluetooth
Can you tell us where you are "not seeing the host bluetooth adapter" ie in KDE settings, or
Bluetooth Manager.

Thanks for your help @cammori !

I have finally found the origin of the problem : I was not in the "pulse" group !

Now KDE do see the BlueZ adapter and I can manage Bluetooth connections !

Glad you got it working. Could you go to Thread Tools and mark the thread Solved? Only the originator of the thread can do that. Thank-you.
