I wasn’t sure who exactly to forward this to, but I used the EOS wiki to pull the necessary packages to setup bluetooth and twice on two computers I was not able to connect to my soundbar or bluetooth speaker so I did some digging.
Which meant I could pair no problem, but connection failed. I don’t know if we want to add that to the pull from the --needed or maybe mention on the wiki you will need it this extra package to play bluetooth audio. I could have sworn I didn’t need to pull that package separately on my other installs. I don’t know if it’s a new thing, or if it’s a product of KDE. .
I too can confirm that this needs to be done to get pairing to not fail (pulling pulseaudio-bluetooth). I did not think too much of it as it also has to be done when running Debian testing as you have to install pulseaudio-modules-bluetooth. All were for KDE installs.
I have never not needed to install that package independently on any Arch-based install I’ve ever done. Mind you, I only REMEMBER that I need to install it when that first connection fails and then I remember I forgot to install it…
I’ve always needed to install it. But I usually install Arch.
I’m like 99% sure I didn’t have to do it the last few Endeavour installs though. And if it’s supposed to be like this, no worries, we may just want to note it somewhere in the wiki to make the lives easier for those who are there trying to install bluetooth stuff.
