I’m having some issues trying to set up a Bluetooth 5.0 dongle.
I’ve already been through many forum questions about this topic, but none of the answers provided worked for me.
First of all, the kernel version I’m running is 5.8.18
Plugging the dongle in a USB port and running the command
prompts the following error:
[ 4.931026] bluetooth hci0: Direct firmware load for rtl_bt/rtl8761b_fw.bin failed with error -2 [ 4.931028] Bluetooth: hci0: RTL: firmware file rtl_bt/rtl8761b_fw.bin not found
So, these commands simply won’t work for me:
sudo modprobe btusb
sudo systemctl start bluetooth
sudo systemctl enable bluetooth
returns an empty list.
I’ve also tried:
sudo rfkill unblock bluetooth rfkill list: 1: hci0: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
But of course those commands didn’t work as well.
The main problem should be the firmware file not found, but I couldn’t figure out how to fix it.
