Re: USB Bluetooth V5? not recognized

Oh, gotcha, my bad, I mixed you up with rumpel. What kernel version are you using, that's interesting. Looks like it may have been back ported already for the kernel Mint is using. I'm not sure where the firmware files go in Mint? May be worth it to try to compile the MPow driver and load it instead.

Re: USB Bluetooth V5? not recognized

You do have linux-firmware installed for Arch, correct? Also, linux-5.8.1 is in the testing repo, which is what I have been using. It doesn't seem like you're getting an improper device issue, so I'm thinking that is not the problem. This is what my lsmod looks like for the dongle using the firmware...

Re: USB Bluetooth V5? not recognized

Hi, It appears you need to put the fw and config files in the directory in a specific folder, as it's detecting the right device, but can't find the firmware. Try placing both rtl8761b_config.bin and rtl8761b_fw.bin here: /usr/lib/firmware/rtl_bt/ After which, check if it comes up, you may just need...

Re: USB Bluetooth V5? not recognized

Hello, First you need kernel 5.8, the patch backported to the Mint kernel so it recognizes the device properly, or patch the kernel on Mint to get it to be recognized as the correct device. Then you need to copy the firmware files to the bluetooth firmware folder, as Linux firmware package does not ...

Re: USB Bluetooth V5? not recognized

Very nice, thanks! I was able to get the drivers working with Linux 5.8 after unloading some bluetooth modules, rtk_btusb worked. Earbuds work great! I found the Techkey (the brand of mine) Windows drivers, but they don't provide Linux drivers. EDIT: Silly, I don't need the kernel driver, they provi...

Re: USB Bluetooth V5? not recognized

It looks like the patch is in 5.8... Firmware isn't in yet though (seems to be some licensing questions with that).

I did not get a CD with mine; so no way to play around with drivers. :(

Re: USB Bluetooth V5? not recognized

It would likely get backported to LTS at some point. I have the same dongle, currently compiling the kernel with the patch to see if it will work now (I'm using ArchLinux, building 5.7 kernel). If I understand correctly, the firmware may also need to get updated too at some point for this to fully w...

Re: VMWare View Client (32bit application) & Mint theme issu

I added style info to the Greybird gtk-widgets.css (bottom) to make it better streamlined for Mint (the other shimmer themes work this this too). Doesn't really solve the problem with Mint-X, but works for me. If anyone knows a local user file to edit instead of the system wide one for theme css, pl...

Re: Accidental Format - Lost 8 years worth of data

As stated, take your time on this, some iso systems, even recovery ones, will automatically mount the drive; you want to avoid that even if it is doing read only. Keeping the drive unmounted and acquiring a physical image to another drive (or do a drive to drive copy) is a good way to have a seperat...

Re: Accidental Format - Lost 8 years worth of data

Make sure it doesn't get mounted again and acquire a physical disk image with dd (or some variant like ddrescue) or a forensic tool like libewf or afflib (these have compression options; you can pipe dd to compress too). Tools like photorec/testdisk can help either rebuild the partition or carve out...

VMWare View Client (32bit application) & Mint theme issues

I'm trying to get the VMWare View Client (from Ubuntu) to theme properly with Mint 17 Cinnamon. The fonts are white and it looks washed out, similar to what I was dealing with awhile ago on ArchLinux. So I installed the i386 package for gtk2 murrine engine (solved this problem in other distros). For...
