How do I update all my drivers on endeavour os?

I am new to linux I installed linux on my system as I wanted to have a completely customizable linux but my mic and bluetooth stopped working the computer shop guy said to maybe update the drivers but he didnt know how to. Someone please help me

They are all up to date by default, and will remain so with regular running of a system update. Other worry about that sort of thing here! Take a look at our wiki entries for pacman related uses, or maybe yay…


hello , can you first return

my mic and bluetooth isnt working tho how do I fix it?

enable the service:

sudo systemctl enable --now bluetooth.service

how do I access bluetooth after that? Idk how to get gui for it, tried bluetoothctl but it said-

[bluetooth]# power on
No default controller available

If you are using a desktop environment like KDE or Gnome there should be a GUI for bluetooth in the settings.

I am using sway…

Never used Sway but you should be able to enable the bluetooth applet in your Sway config so there is an icon in your Sway bar… For me that program is blueberry-tray. Maybe somebody else knows.

not there

You should read the Arch Wiki articles on bluetooth:

A very common tool that also has a symbol in the sys tray is blueman:

Just my opinion:
If that is your start into Linux Arch and EndeavourOS can teach you a lot but it is also starting from kind of an advanced level, as you don’t have everything preconfigured and you actually need to read a lot of wiki articles and forum threads.
The community here is happy to help as you might already have noticed.
If you ho down this way you will have a good knowledge base about Linux in general and Arch after a short time with EndeavourOS, but if you are losing interest in Linux because you get frustrated that would be a shame.
There are for sure distributions that are more friendly towards new users.
I started with openSUSE. A lot of people start with *buntu.

So, once you manage to get rid of your problems and wrap your head around Arch/Linux you probably don’t want to use anything else. But if you notice that you get very frustrated, maybe you should give other distros a chance instead of getting back to Windows or MacOS.

I hope I won’t get shit for that comment :wink:

this isnt exactly my first os I have used many kubuntu, ubuntu, lubuntu, ubuntu mate, kali, parrot, fedora, ctails, po!_os,etc… I know basic commands in linux but idk much about troubleshooting and stuff

also I will never get frustrated from linux! it is not bloated like windows and has numerous advantages compared to windows

its also too interesting for some reason lol

That’s nice to read. Sorry for my comment then, for me it sounded like you just started off with Linux at all.

So, for your problems the Arch wiki should be helpful.
Besides the bluetooth wiki page make sure your bluetooth is not hard or soft blocked.
You can check this with

rfkill list all

The microphone issue might be connected to pipewire. In most DEs you would find settings for it as a GUI somewhere, I don’t know about sway. I also use pulseaudio/pavucontrol and not pipewire, so I won’t be of much help.
Of course there is an Arch wiki page on it:

: acer-wireless: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
1: acer-bluetooth: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
2: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
3: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

how do I get my mic to work then?
