I couldn’t get my Sony headphones to work with the latest ‘bluez’ file 5.72 and had to downgrade to 5.64.2. I read a post that was two years old about this problem with connections using bluez. Is there other files that need to be installed to use this latest version? I re-installed my system the other day to get Timeshift and snapper to work (left ext4 for btrfs). This is when I couldn’t get my bluetooth to work for my headphones.

It’s one of the reasons why if you can run the LTS kernel,

And in many cases on common usage you will be fine using LTS Kernel, you do not have to keep yourself on the edge to hard
I have spent a lot of time over the last 8 years helping people fix their broken systems and seeing people constantly describe how much trouble it is to keep their Arch-based systems running. Meanwhile, even though I run many systems with different configs, I never actually have these problems myself.1 I have helped people with so many obscure issues that if I ever did have issues with systems failing after an update I could fix them myself without too much trouble in most cases. However, I d…
