Bluetooth only "Searching for devices..."

Post by avramaral »

I'm facing difficulties to find any Bluetooth device. It just keeps at "Searching for devices..." - even though I'm sure that there are more than one available device.

Running

Code: Select all

/etc/init.d/bluetooth status
, I got the following result:

Code: Select all

● bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: active (running) since Fri 2020-01-24 18:54:51 -03; 11min ago
     Docs: man:bluetoothd(8)
 Main PID: 829 (bluetoothd)
   Status: "Running"
    Tasks: 1 (limit: 4532)
   CGroup: /system.slice/bluetooth.service
           └─829 /usr/lib/bluetooth/bluetoothd

Jan 24 18:54:55 andre bluetoothd[829]: Endpoint registered: sender=:1.43 path=/MediaEndpoint/A2DPSink
Any suggestion?

Encountering exactly the same problem...
Status "active", but "Searching for devices..."
I've reinstalled `blueberry` and `bluez-tools`, and no success.
Ironically, this post appeared today, the same day I encountered this problem...

Same problem here on Cinnamon 19.3 after solving a WiFi problem.
