Pairing bluetooth headset fails with error org.bluez.Error.AuthenticationTimeout

Hello everyone,

I’m having a problem connecting to my Bluetooth headset. I can pair it to other systems, so I know it’s working, however, on my new laptop on which I recently installed Manjaro i3, it fails.

This is what I’m doing (and the output I see):

[bluetooth]# power on
[bluetooth]# agent on
[bluetooth]# default-agent
[bluetooth]# scan on    <-- finds my headset
[bluetooth]# trust <mac>
Changing <mac> trust succeeded
[bluetooth]# pair <mac>
Attempting to pair with <mac>
Failed to pair: org.bluez.Error.AuthenticationTimeout

I’ve been going through the internet for the past 4 hours, but I didn’t find any solution.

Any help is sincerely appreciated
