i get the error message br-connection-unkown if i try to connect my bluetooth headset. There is a possible solution mentioned in this forum, to downgrade bluez to 5.61-1. But i have no idea how to do this?
It works if you previously installed that package before
tx, thats a very good instruction :). Unfortunatly the downgrade didn’t solve my problem. Even after restart i still get the same error. Any ideas?
An other question. i did follow the instruction. After the downgrade command i was asked in the terminal if i want to exclude bluez from upgrade. Therefor i didn’t use the add bluez to ignorPkg command.
Now i tried to add bluez zu upgrade again and searched the pacman.conf file.
There is no entry for ingnorePkg= .
Since the downgrade didn’t help, how do i undo the changes and update bluez and keep it updated in the future?
Have you installed pulseaudio-bluetooth package ? Assuming you use Pulseaudio, do you ?
Try updating it manually to latest version you have got
sudo pacman -U <location of your latest bluez>
sudo pacman -S bluez bluez-utils
What does it say ?
sudo pacman -S bluez bluez-utils Warnung: bluez-5.63-1 ist aktuell -- Reinstalliere Abhängigkeiten werden aufgelöst … Nach in Konflikt stehenden Paketen wird gesucht … Pakete (2) bluez-5.63-1 bluez-utils-5.63-1 Gesamtgröße des Downloads: 0,94 MiB Gesamtgröße der installierten Pakete: 6,11 MiB Größendifferenz der Aktualisierung: 3,74 MiB :: Installation fortsetzen? [J/n]
I’m confused. It says bluez 5.63-1 is actual but i had 5.63-3 installed before the downgrade.
You are sure ?
pacman -Q bluez 127 ✘ bluez 5.63-1
and my system is fully upgraded as well
pacman -Ss pulseaudio-bluetooth extra/pipewire-pulse 1:0.3.45-1 Low-latency audio/video router and processor - PulseAudio replacement extra/pulseaudio-bluetooth 15.0-1 [Installiert] Bluetooth support for PulseAudio
yes seems to be installed
thought i checked it. But nevermind, perhaps just blindly followed the other br-connection-unknown topic :D.
edit: checked the /var/log/pacman.log . You’re right. i never actual downgraded it
Note pacman -Ss doesnot return the packages that are insalled in your system
try Qs instead of Ss
pacman -Qs pulseaudio-bluetooth local/pulseaudio-bluetooth 15.0-1 Bluetooth support for PulseAudio
ControllerMode = bredr
Look if you have 5.63.1 version in your cache
In my case I have those:
Then install that package with
sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/bluez-5.63-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
sry I didn’t have the package there
tried, but didn’t help.
gjoe, i think u missed a part of this conversation? 5.63-1 is installed at my system. Or is there a special reason to reinstall it?
I just gave you the answer for this question… I don’t know what you did whilst downgrading which you described as undoing the process to be a question…
Would you like to take a look at #23 in Arch Forum
I don’t know how to recompile stuff but recompiling the btusb module worked for a guy…
Or this bluez is a bugous version
I too use a bluetooth headset
Try forcing connection using cli of bluetoothctl
or I force using the blueman-applet to connect
tap on connection more than once
That’s how I am doing lately… since I receive similar message like yours and even after connection it gets disconnected
Hope you make it
Have a great day
