Does the output of inxi -Faazy still show that the bt-service is disabled?

inxi -E
Bluetooth:
  Message: No bluetooth data found.

Type bluetoothctl in your terminal followed by show and paste the output here

bluetoothctl show
No default controller available

I’m clueless too…

Output of:
lsmod | grep usb
and
ls /etc/modprobe.d/

 lsmod | grep usb

Any luck on the LTS kernel? That’s always my first suggestion, and it tends to work quite often oddly enough.
