Bluetooth cannot find any devices

Hey all, my bluetooth cannot find any devices. I’ve already checked the forums for solutions but nothing of it seems to be working. (at least I now know what data to show here for you smarter people)

systemctl status bluetooth

I’m not going to be much help but obviously your bluetooth is not turned on.
Mine shows up as
Active: active (running) since Sun 2022-07-10 05:46:48 PDT; 10h ago
and I’m not connected to any device right now.

It might be KDE or it could be your bios that has it turned off.

Oh yea weird how I overlooked that, but I think it was active yesterday as well. I have googled for commands but can’t seem to enable it

Your locale needs checking

You have - accidently - hit the hardware Fn key disabling wireless - which includes bluetooth

Will fix locales! Do you by any chance know what FN key that is? or do I just have to test them all :sweat:

it is defined by vendor - look closely at the keys - usually a small antenna in blue - which shows it requires the Fn + that key

Yea I checked them all but none seem to be for bluetooth:

  • Mute
  • Decrease volume
  • Increase volume
  • Decrease brightness
  • Increase brightness
  • Disable touchpad
  • Keyboard backlight
  • Extend screen
  • Log out
  • Disable camera
  • Screen snip
  • Asus logo I think, I just use it as boot key

Those are all the ones I have, so i’m kinda unsure how I would’ve disabled bluetooth using them

EDIT:

This seems to be the issue
