This is my first Mint installation. I have been using Debian and Ubuntu for a decade. I am trying to make Bluetooth work on a Lenovo A340 all in one. At the beginning the wifi was not working. I tried to install official Ubuntu Realtek drivers, but there is not official drivers for this chipset. The Realtek RTL8821ce is an integrated Bluetooth+WiFi chip, as far as I know.

I installed the WIFI driver using the Thomas Pinho repo https://github.com/tomaspinho/rtl8821ce . Now the WIFI is working, but the Bluetooth is not.

Here is the inxi -Fxz output:
