I am currently having issues pairing my Xbox One S controller via Bluetooth. According to the arch wiki, it should just work with the standard Bluetooth packages after disabling ERTM.
However, when I am trying to connect via KDE Plasmas interface or via bluetoothctl from the command line, the pairing fails with the following error:
Failed to pair: org.bluez.Error.ConnectionAttemptFailed
I have already tried the following things:
- Finding a way to factory reset the controller. Unfortunately, it seems like there is no way of doing that.
- At one point, the controller appeared in my paired devices. However, any connection attempt failed. I further tried by booting into windows, connecting there was no problem. I then tried to copy the pairing key from windows to Linux, but the connection still fails.
- Using the Wireless Adapter from Microsoft. Pressing the button on that adapter does nothing (a LED should blink indicating that pairing has started), but works on Windows.
- Tried with steam running in the background and without.
I know that connecting the controller shouldn’t be a problem since it worked on a previous installation. It also works flawlessly on Windows.
Using the controller via USB cable works fine, but it’s not as convenient.
Am I missing some package, or is something else broken? I am running Kernel version 5.13.1-, which should be the latest stable version.
