my raspberry pi 3 model B, running Arch, has an issue with bluetooth. First of all:
- Bluetooth has worked flawlessly previously
- pi-bluetooth from the AUR is up to date
- bluez and bluez-utils are up to date
- The system is up to date as well (just ran pacman -Syu)
Still, when I try to use the bluetooth interface, it doesn't work.
bluetoothctl (as root), when I run "scan on", tells me
Failed to start discovery: org.bluez.Error.NotReady
wminput can't find the bluetooth interface:
No Bluetooth interface found unable to connect
"systemctl status bluetooth" has the following output:
● bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled) Active: active (running) since Sat 2019-03-23 21:32:47 CET; 9min ago Docs: man:bluetoothd(8) Main PID: 2005 (bluetoothd) Status: "Running" Tasks: 1 (limit: 1404) CGroup: /system.slice/bluetooth.service └─2005 /usr/lib/bluetooth/bluetoothd Mar 23 21:32:47 media.lan systemd: Starting Bluetooth service...

I am at my wits end here, everything seems to be fine, yet nothing works. What is going on here?
