Ive been using manjaro for about 6 months on my laptop, as it has works great, and I decided to make the jump on my desktop as well. On my laptop I had Bluetooth trouble, I managed to fix most of it (there is still one problem, but it is predictable as it happens only once a day, after I connect the device). Now, on my desktop, I’m facing bluetooth issues as well. I bought a bluetooth adaptor to use my mouse (logitech mx master 2s) on the desktop.
after downloading this aur package regarding the RTL8761b firmware, the mouse paired and connected with no problem. I didn’t have one of the problems I had with it on the laptop. But There is a weird problem nonetheless. It stops working for a few seconds every few minutes.
Its not when the computer sleeps. its not when I don’t use it for a while. It seems completely random. I haven’t managed to time it precisely, but i suspect it happens at some fixed interval of time. it Doesn’t seems like I lose the bluetooth connection either. but I’m not 100% sure how to test this.
I’m not sure how relevant it is, but I’m on kernel 5.8.18-1
Does someone has any idea of what could be happening?
edit: I don’t think its a problem with the adapter, because it works fine on windows, and even on Linux, my bluetooth headphones have a continuous sound output, even when the mouse freezes. So it looks like it is a mouse problem? Also, the time between the last two freezes has been about 240 seconds. I’ve no idea if it is relevant.
edit2: i still haven’t fixed it. The freezes defintely arent happening on a fixed time interval. ALtough yesterday it felt it was, now sometimes it works for hours, and sometimes stops after a few minutes. Writing this edit it stopped twice. But something that might help, when i’ve got bluetoothctl open on the konsole, every time the mouse stops working, the following appears
