Lenovo 100 - RTL8723BE - Bluetooth cannot find any devices

Hi All,

I am really new to manjaro. I was using linux mint before and never got the bluetooth running. And in manjaro results are the same.

I dont know where to start. I ve read a couple of threads here and none of them were helpful.


Did you allow (in the settings) the devices to be found and scan the area for some other devices?

Please post:

inxi -Fxxxz

Please post the input/outputs of all requested commands via the terminal as text, (not as pics).

Information on how to properly post hardware specs and logs:

Please format any terminal output with three backticks before and after, as shown in this picture:

yes I did no effect.

okay here is the output of : inxi -Fxxxz

I fixed the problem by changing my bluetooth adapter to Atheros AR9462.

Thanks for all the replies.
