Hello I have HP ENVY 17-j111sl Notebook PC and Fedora 31 installed with kernel 5.5.17-200.fc31.x86_64. Bluetooth never worked since day 1. However it seems that the device is recognised and have no problems at all. So I don’t understand what could be wrong. The only key combination present on the keyboard is the wireless one… Fn+F12. Nothing else, not even a separated button below or on the notebook sides.

On my laptop, I have a function key for hardware operation, and please find out if there is an activation key for each device. Basically, it is in the form of an operation, but the Bluetooth daemon may not work in an inactive state.
After that, you can find the Bluetooth device in Settings and proceed with the synchronization process through the pairing process. If the Bluetooth operation is activated in Settings, you can check the setting status.
If you want to check the sound and operation characteristics through the Bluetooth device, activate the Bluetooth device on your phone. Afterwards, check the status of the Bluetooth sync in Fedora’s notebook settings to hear it louder from the notebook speaker. enjoy the music!!
There is no problem in operating with systemctl, but I think it is very useful to easily apply and understand the actual service status and operation.
It is necessary to install the Bluetooth driver in the server distribution. Considering which distribution the interrogator installed, the driver installation and verification process and processor verification are necessary.
I installed KDE on the server distribution and informed the operation status.
As a system reference, I think it’s perfectly good, but of course, it’s not a real-time service, but it provides great information that can be referenced after booting, as well as giving overall information.
no joy so far. There is only the F12 key that is lit already and it has the Wireless symbol on it. From what I’ve acknowledged this adapter is converged… so both Wireless/Bluetooth. The service is loaded but “dead” inactive… I’ll see to borrow a dongle bluetooth some day… for now I give up…
