Hi everyone. I am in EnOS i3 edition. I am facing an issue with bluetooth. I have installed bluez, bluez-utils. I use a bluethooth speaker with my laptop. Everything is fine when the speaker is just next to laptop. But if the speaker is away 1 or 2 meter it will lost signal. And even if it connected it will just don’t output any sound.
Searched for a while couldn’t find any solution in google. So I decided to upload here.
Is this a new or old install? Pipewire or pulse?
I have had a WAYYYYYY better experience with pipewire than I did on pulse. It sounds and works fathoms better for me.
Hey, this is Endeavour, shouldn’t that be measured in light years?
I thought the Endeavour was a ship? Isn’t the logo the sails?? (I still don’t quite get the connection to space travel)

The default is pipewire and I loved it.
This is an old post, but changing the ant select setting may be worth trying. This is a very problem prone wifi/bt combo chip.
Also be sure your bios is up to date.
I got the issue but don’t know how to exactly fix this. I haven’t used modprobe before.
Edit: I tried the soultion and put 1 and 2 in ant_sel but didn’t work.
Edit: It’s weird. When I use wifi and bluetooth both then range of bluetooth is really good. But if i turn wifi off and use ethernet bluethooth is dead low.
sudo modprobe -r rtl8723be; sleep 2; sudo modprobe rtl8723be ant_sel=2
sudo modprobe -r rtl8723be; sleep 2; sudo modprobe rtl8723be ant_sel=1
A reboot will revert the changes.
You’re welcome, glad that helped.
