Systemtray bluetooth menu is empty after latest updates

After this update I changed to kernel 5.16.2-1. So it might not be the update issue, but the system tray bluetooth menu instead of showing paired devices, shows a blank menu with the option to add a device. It takes it approximately a minute to load in the devices.

After typing in: sudo systemctl restart bluetooth the menu with the paired devices is restored.

Will change to the new LTS kernel for a while to see if the bluetooth hiccup is the new kernel bug.

Just letting you know.

Edit: changed to kernel 5.15.16-1. the system tray bluetooth menu issue resolved itself.

Thus - kernel 5.16.2-1 issue on Manjaro.


I have this and maybe more.
With kernel 5.16.2-1 I have the exact problem. But I also have this problem with 5.15.16-1 and 5.10.

I also have found now that I have it on 5.15.16-1.

So, there’s something with the update.

Can somebody split it into a separate support topic?
