Can't get bluetooth to work on ideapad

I don’t have a fastboot option in my bios, and it’s disabled on windos

and trying with the 5.17.1-3 kernel

In that case, let’s blacklist it manually then:

sudo echo "blacklist btusb" > /etc/modprobe.d/bluetooth.conf

Followed by trying to reinstall the driver:

  • First make sure all headers for all installed kernels are present:
pamac install $(pamac list --quiet --installed | grep "^linux[0-9]*[-rt]*$" | awk '{print $1"-headers"}' ORS=' ')
  • Then install the driver from the AUR:
pamac build rtl8723au_bt-dkms

And rebooting, of course.

rtl87* provides btusb, so blacklisting it and installing the module did not bring any positive results, 5.17 kernel without using the module also did not work. I remember getting it to work a year ago, but now I’m really at a loss

Then, If you installed the headers as well, and you managed to install the drivers, I’m afraid it’s beyond my knowledge and I don’t know where to go from here. Sorry.


I see, thank you anyway

I am as dumb as a brick, I disabled bluetooth with rfkill in /etc/udev/rules.d/ and totally forgot about it, really sorry for wasting your time

Just glad you got it fixed now!
