IMC Bluetooth drivers issue

Hi, I’m new to this distro, and bluetooth just would not work. I’m using an ASUS X454L, with an IMC bluetooth module. upon checking dmesg I was getting this:

[40635.570627] Bluetooth: Can't get version to change to load ram patch err
[40635.570635] Bluetooth: Loading patch file failed

Any ideas on why this is? or alternative drivers?

Can we see

inxi -Na

here it is:

  Device-1: Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet
    vendor: ASUSTeK driver: r8168 v: 8.051.02-NAPI modules: r8169 pcie: gen: 1
    speed: 2.5 GT/s lanes: 1 port: e000 bus-ID: 02:00.0 chip-ID: 10ec:8168
    class-ID: 0200
  Device-2: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 / AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter
    vendor: AzureWave driver: ath9k v: kernel pcie: gen: 1 speed: 2.5 GT/s
    lanes: 1 bus-ID: 03:00.0 chip-ID: 168c:0036 class-ID: 0280

Okay so I’m not sure if this is the answer or not based on the dmesg error.

Enabling bluetooth coexistence

Bluetooth coexistence has to be manually enabled when loading ath9k by setting the btcoex_enable module parameter.

modprobe ath9k btcoex_enable=1



There were firmware updates today also which may change things or not? :thinking:

restarting + modprobe works, thank you
