Bluetooth is disabled after doing pacman -Syu

Could someone help me how to enable the bluetooth back?
I have played music with bluetooth after dual booting the Garuda Linux with Windows OS and before doing pacman -Syu.
The pacman -Syu possibly had made changes to the bluetooth.

Try rebooting your machine and see if it comes back. Sometimes things don't work right after taking an update until you reboot.

Also, the preferred way to update is not pacman -Syu, it is:


It includes extra considerations to help keep your system from breaking. :slightly_smiling_face:


I already tried this. But will try again to reboot...
Update: Bluetooth is still disabled...

System updated! 🐧

Try the linux-lts kernel.


:point_up_2: That is updating, not the same as rebooting. Rebooting is when you ask your system to turn off and back on again. Save your work, then type in the terminal:

Just installed the LTS kernel. Is this right dude?

Thanks a lot Garuda Team it works to enable the bluetooth by using LTS kernel. But I have another problem in detecting bluetooth devices. Do you have another good idea?

Dual booting with Windows?

Windows often messes with Bluetooth acquisition in Linux.

Look for a newer BIOS than 2014. I'm serious.

Another thread, please, or is this thread not solved?

This thread is solved for enabling bluetooth using LTS kernel. Will make another thread or search a solution here for bluetooth problem for undetecting devices.
Thank you garuda team for all your assistance...
