Experiencing issues with Peripherals

I’m new to Manjaro and Linux in general and recently switched from Windows 10 and was encountering two issues I couldn’t find a fix for on my own:

  • upon restart, mouse and keyboard (that being a logitech g305 and an HP Pavillon 600), won’t respond for a variable amount of time, sometimes just for a minute, sometimes for more than 10. I was wondering if there was a script I could force the machine to run to make it check for wireless peripherals or something like that, but I lack the technical to skill to know whether that’s a sensible, viable or possible solution, and wouldn’t know how to do it.
  • the headphones: at random intervals, then they’ll stop receiving sound for a few (10-30) seconds, and then be disconnected and quickly reconnected until the process begins again.

Including the result of inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host, as I was told it’s helpful:

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

Thank you for providing the inxi output and I started editing it as it seems malformatted, so please:

  • Run the same inxi again
  • edit your post by pressing the and then the pencil
  • paste the inxi output as is in-between the two ```

as that is going to take you 10 seconds, whereas it’s going to take me 10 minutes to untangle the spaghetti that your output is right now. Then it’ll be more readable…

Then :heart: this post and I’ll have another look!

is it good now?

  1. You seem to have a wireless mouse. Can you try a wired one first and see if it happens there too?

  2. Have a look if there is a BIOS / UEFI firmware update first

  3. Try 5.4 LTS or 5.12 stable and see if it goes away all by itself there. If it does, delete 5.10
