• Bluetooth No Longer Working (Gnome 3.26)


    Hello Everyone,

    As the subject states, it appears that sometime after I updated to the new Gnome, my bluetooth headphones stopped sync’ing correctly with my Antergos install. It appears that when I go into the Bluetooth window under settings, NO devices are showing up in the list…it also appears to be slightly buggy.

    Can anyone else confirm this behavior, and if so, do you have a workaround?

    Thanks in advance!

  • as allways: bluetooth is working and then not working in circles…
    Try to install bluez-utils and connect headset with bluetoothctl like this inside terminal:

    bluetoothctl
    power on
    agent on
    default-agent
    scan on
    pair XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
    trust XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
    connect XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
    scan off
    exit
    

    replace XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX with your headphones "ID"
    If this went good without errors you can select your headphone inside audio settings.

    Hey @joekamprad,

    Unfortunately, I do not think it’s working properly. Here is the output I get when I run the commands:

    [[email protected] ~]$ sudo bluetoothctl
    [sudo] password for aahmad:
    Agent registered
    [bluetooth]# power on
    No default controller available
    [bluetooth]# agent on
    Agent is already registered
    [bluetooth]# default-agent
    Default agent request successful
    [bluetooth]# scan on
    No default controller available
    [bluetooth]#

    Thoughts?

    i will need the device info from bluetooth:

    lsusb | grep luetooth
    lspci  | grep luetooth
    

    But there are some bugs inside GNOME 3.26 related to hdmi-audio and bluetooth i get a shell crash / total freeze on tinkering around audio and bluetooth, with gnome-control-center…

  • Hey @joekamprad,

    I actually replaced the OOTB Wifi+Bluetooth card on my XPS 13 (9350) with an Intel 8260 card. It has better range and better support with Linux supposedly.

    I ran your commands below:

    [[email protected] ~]$ lspci | grep luetooth
    [[email protected] ~]$ lsusb | grep luetooth
    

    No output from either command unfortunately. It was working perfectly a few weeks ago. What else can I check to get you the information you need?

    Thanks again for all of your time and help, it is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Asif

  • and :

    sudo lspci | grep luetooth
    sudo lsusb | grep luetooth
    

    or

    sudo lspci
    sudo lsusb
    

    also empty?

    if yes take a look inside the boot journal:

    lspci > log.txt && lsusb >> log.txt && dmesg >> log.txt && cat log.txt | curl -F [email protected] https://ptpb.pw/?u=1

    As I said I have the Intel 8260 card for both wifi + blueooth. Thanks again!

  • @a4orce84 said in Bluetooth No Longer Working (Gnome 3.26):

    Intel 8260

    lsmod | grep iwlwifi
    
    rfkill list
    

    should give you something like:

    0: tpacpi_bluetooth_sw: Bluetooth
            Soft blocked: yes
            Hard blocked: no
    1: tpacpi_wwan_sw: Wireless WAN
            Soft blocked: no
            Hard blocked: no
    2: phy0: Wireless LAN
            Soft blocked: no
            Hard blocked: no
    

    and if it gives your bluetooth as blocked do this:

    rfkill unblock 0

  • I believe the BCM card is the factory Dell card. I replaced that for the Intel 8260 (both wifi + Bluetooth). I do NOT have the out of the box XPS 13 Bluetooth card in my laptop.

  • @a4orce84
    One long shot idea could be to install a newer kernel, if possible. Which kernel version do you have?

  • @joekamprad said in Bluetooth No Longer Working (Gnome 3.26):

    yaourt -S linux-firmware-iwlwifi-git
    

    Installed the firmware, what are the next steps?
