I am currently running a Dell XPS 13 with an Intel 8260 wifi + bluetooth chip. I swapped the Intel card because it plays nice with Linux. I am using Manjaro KDE on the 5.8.x Kernal currently.
I have noticed that my bluetooth often does not work (trying to enable the bluetooth device in my settings). I found doing a reboot, etc. does not cause anything to change. However, running the following command ‘resets’ my bluetooth and I am able to enable the device and can pair things correctly:
‘nmcli networking off; sudo rmmod btusb; sleep 2; sudo modprobe btusb; nmcli networking on’
I forgot where I found this command exactly, but running the above, I can suddenly enable and start using my Intel 8260 chip with Bluetooth successfully.
Has anyone else experienced this problem and found a permanent solution? Any help / feedback / assistance would be greatly appreciated.
