Connect two Bluetooth devices simultaneously

I can connect to one Bluetooth without issues using Bluedevil. When I try to connect a second device, Bluedevil keeps connecting and then fails (the first device keeps connected). If I use Windows, I am able to connect two devices simultaneously, so the Bluetooth adapter has that feature.

KDE Plasma: 5.19.5
KDE Frameworks: 5.73.0
Kernel: 5.8.6
Bluetooth adapter: Realtek RTL8822BE

:+1: Welcome to Manjaro! :+1:

Please read this:

and post some more information so we can see what’s really going on. Now we know the symptom of the disease, but we need some more probing to know where the origin lies…

An inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host would be the minimum required information… (Personally Identifiable Information like serial numbers and MAC addresses will be filtered out by the above command)


Hello :slight_smile:
I have the same issue with my bluetooth. My log of inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host :
