Bluetooth is not working

Please I need help. I am a complete noob. I have installed garuda recently but for some reason my bluetooth is not working. It says "No Bluetooth Adapters Found". It is very important for me to solve this. Please tell me what I have to do to make working.

Welcome :slight_smile:

First, read the template before you delete it. Or follow the instructions.
Second, why do you write so large here, everyone can set the font size on the browser itself.
Sorry.
If you don't give any further hints and don't post the garuda-inxi, I will lock this post.

You should start your own fund called "The Bluetooth Adapters Fund"

Once you have investers, your fund will grow and in a few months you will have enough in the fund. You will then have created the opposite of the "No Bluetooth Adapters Fund" and everything will work beautifully.

you can post the garuda inxi that way:

open the terminal/Konsole and type: garuda-inxi

Then there comes a text. This text needs to be copied and pasted in your own forum post between ~~~ above and ~~~ below the text.
This text shows everyone who is even remotely capable of being a help to your issue to get a clue about your OS' state, configuration about hardware and drivers and so on.
Without it any attempt to help you would be insufficient.
Especially if it seems to be a hardware related issue like your bluetooth adapter.
With that said, we look forward to your inxi.

:shark:

LOL man that made me snort :joy:

This 2019 Dell desktop machine came with Windows. After I installed Arch and wanted to use the BT adapter, it had gone missing even though my BIOS listed one and had that box checked. And when I checked the Dell Support forums, I found that I wasn't the only person with this problem. I even re-installed Windows, but it was gone.

Going through every single BIOS setting, trial-and-error found that the culprit was a different BIOS setting; one that controls Hardware Detection. It had been set to "Auto." I changed the setting to "Thorough" and regained the BT adaptor. Just a stupid setting.

I am not able to find any Hardware Detection setting in BIOS setup. I have a Hp machine. Do you know any solution to this ?

Have you tried some Googling?

I found this thread in about 30 seconds. The user has the same WiFi/Bluetooth-combined adapter you have. It appears a kernel/firmware update solved their problem, but maybe some other information/commands there could help.

This is Bluetooth 101:


Be sure Bios is up to date.


Test out different kernels.

Recommended kernels:

linux-lts
linux-mainline
linux

Test out the newest firmware package by Installing linux-firmware-git.


If all else fails reset your BIOS to the factory default.


Be sure fast boot and wifi/bt power saving is disabled if using Windows.


Be sure Bluetooth is enabled in BIOS.


Check rfkill list (post the output of that command).

Do you have a keyboard or mechanical BT toggle switch?


Check your logs and post:

sudo dmesg | grep -iE 'bluetooth|btusb|firm'

Do you have the Realtek driver package rtw88-dkms-git installed?

I don't have any bluetooth option in my BIOS. I am working on Hp machine

rfkill list
0: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

sudo dmesg | grep -iE 'bluetooth|btusb|firm'
1.718804] i915 0000:00:02.0: [drm] Finished loading DMC firmware i915/kbl_dmc_ver1_04.bin (v1.4)

I don't know if I have some realtek driver package installed. How to check it.
And I don't have any mechanical bluetooth switch.

What to do further ?

Have you tried a different kernel? 'Garuda Settings Manager' > 'Kernel' > Try 'linux-lts' as @tbg recommended above

does bluetooth works on windows? how are you installed your garuda linux have you disabled fast boot ? let's see

sudo lsmod | grep 'blue'

Yes, it is in the Fast Boot settings in this Dell desktop. Your HP's BIOS should have something similar, though it may be named something else. What you are wanting to achieve is to make your machine detect all of your hardware. There should be settings in your BIOS--even if it is an HP machine. (My wife has an HP and I noticed their BIOS seem a little convoluted.)

I would also ensure I am running the latest BIOS firmware available from HP along with any other of their recommended updates.

Lastly, I would just Google it: "How to turn off Fast Boot in HP machine blah, blah, blah."

Keep punchin'.
