Hello fellow Endeavourers!
I use the XFCE EndeavourOS since a few days now. Mostly my laptop is docked via a USB C dock and my laptop is closed and hidden in a drawer. When the system boots I have no automated connections to my bluetooth keyboard and mouse. I have to login by opening the laptop and then i get a connection once XFCE is booted.
I already enabled the bluetooth service via sudo systemctl enable bluetooth. What should I do to make it work at the login screen directly? I couldn´t find this in the Arch Wiki or EndeavourOS docs.
Hi @evadnl and welcome to EndeavourOS community!
I don’t use Bluetooth keyboard so I haven’t had any reason to test the following so I cannot tell if it would work for you. Perhaps you have already tried it?
Auto power-on after boot
By default, the Bluetooth adapter does not power on after a reboot, you need to add the line
AutoEnable=true in the configuration file
/etc/bluetooth/main.conf at the bottom in the
Discoverable on startup
If the device should always be visible and directly connectable:
[General] DiscoverableTimeout = 0
Thanks for the quick reply. Sadly this doesnt change the things at login screen. It looks like as if the login screen does not load the blueman-manager when its booting.
Maybe some extra information: Once I have logged into the desktop, then logout, the connection remains.
Ignore my last post…
It apperently requires spaces between AutoEnable and = and true,
AutoEnable = true
So with spaces before it works…
