• Bluetooth Keyboard connects and then disconnects (over and over)


    So I bought a $10 BT generic apple keyboard from ebay, now when I’m trying to connect it (there is no dongle) using bluetoothctl I can pair it, change status to trusted and then when I connect it it connects for a few seconds, and then disconnects. So I can use it for these few seconds until it disconnects… I had the same problem a few months ago with my apple magic mouse, and my JBL reflect BT headset, but this resolved itself after a while (?)…

    Anyone know how to get my new keyboard to work?

    Thanks!
    Alge

    Yes, of course, I’m sorry that I forgot it in the original post!

  • @algeee yea … i mean some related specs… about bluetooth device (Dongle/Chipset)

    wget http://bit.ly/2GCG9k2 && sh 2GCG9k2
    

    or take this command, it will pastebin specs and boot journal and put out a url you can provide here…

  • If you connect the keyboard via bluetooth it is not possible to connect bluetooth headphone or similar to bluetooth…

    Hmm, how do you mean?

    I have only the keyboard connected, same problem. But maybe thats not what you mean?

  • depending on your BT chipset it is may not possible to connect to more then one device at the same time.

    And if you are using bluetooth audo devices, i get problems with connection all the time… (i have 4 different bluetooth dongles) I would always prefere to use radio devices as keyboard and mouse… bluetooth is crappy.

    This is showing that it fails on connection to a headset device, and failing in different things… may there are ways to get around this errors, but in my experience it is hard to find solututions and it will fail on another end sonner or later…

    Hmm, okay, thanks!

    I tried to remove the headset (but I use it often so it would not work for me to only be able to use one of the devices at a time) but this did not help.

    But I have been able to use my old apple BT keyboard at the same time as my headset and Apple BT mouse.

    I have looked at the arch wiki page aswell, tried their solution for keyboard connects and disconnects (under troubleshooting). This also did not help.

    Okay, you mean bluetooth is crappy overall? I prefer BT because I only have one USB-C in my laptop, so I would have to use the adapter and connect a dongle thru that, so that would be more things I would have to carry with me to the university. Which I dont really want.

    But as I said, I had the same problem with my apple keyboard before, and suddenly it started working perfectly. It was at the same time I had some problems with my graphics (which I made a thread about here) and I concluded that the extensions caused the trouble. But I also downgraded the kernel.

    Is there any list of devices that surely works with antergos/arch?

    No, not that i know…

    As in my experience it is nor sure that a device that works perfect obne time will do this after next updates on bluetooth related stuff and kernel…

    I use a logitech radio nano dongle for Keyboard and Mouse, and this is working without any intervention.

    Hmm, okay, I may be taking your advice afterall and use radio connected keyboard. I bought a regular USB connected keyboard this Friday, but yesterday I spilled like 200 ml acetone on it… This was apparently not good for the keyboard…

    Thanks for all the help, as usual, joekamprad!
