Atheros AR 9285 - Bluetooth not detected on newest kernels

Hey community,
Recently I installed garuda linux dragonized version.
Before I was using windows OS . In that my bluetooth worked fine but when shifted to garuda , the time I open Bluetooth from Notification section it says NO BLUETOOTH ADAPTERS FOUND .
Also when i tried enabling it from system settings , the time I click on enable nothing happens.

Solutions I Tried :

  1. I installed bluez using the following command:
    sudo pacman -S bluez bluez-utils

  2. I also installed blueman :
    sudo pacman -S blueman

  3. I then enabled blutooth service:
    sudo systemctl enable bluetooth.service

  4. Also I started the service:
    sudo systemctl start bluetooth.service

Still NO effects.

Then I tried to open blueman i.e, bluetooth manager

The time i click on it It's icon appears on the screen but the window does not even open

My Specs:

  • ASUS K53U Laptop

  • 6 gb ram

  • 320 GB HDD

  • Amd C-60 APU with Radeon HD Graphics

  • 64 bit OS

The Network controller driver - as mentioned in the system settings

  • RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller(Realtek)

  • AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express)
    (Qualcom Atheros)

waiting Ahead for Your Solutions

Use three ~ top/buttom instead "

** use three ~ top/buttom instead **
what do you mean??

Read wiki link, Please

Try linux-lts kernel

sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux-lts

Then reboot and from advanced options in grub menu choose lts kernel to boot.

See if it helps as recently there have been reports that latest kernel has some ongoing issues with Bluetooth

A post was split to a new topic: What do I choose from these?

Nothing new happened after this.

My problem is still in the existence

Any other solutions please !!

Is bluetooth working in live USB?

Nope bro .

Check BIOS settings once.

In bios, what do I check

I don't know, as I don't own an ASUS device. As per this link from ASUS itself, one possible solution is to reset BIOS (though it is for Windows it may also work for Linux too). Try looking for anything related to Bluetooth.

@gardev
Why sudo for inxi?Just copy and paste from forum, mouse over and click on icon.
Read again

for nice formatted text, please! :slight_smile:

I think it is the opposite.
I wait for what I have asked for. New report from your current system, after booting linux-lts kernel.
