I upgraded recently from Ubuntu 16.04 to 18.04 on my HP spectre laptop. Among a lot of other problems, there is the annoying behavior that Bluetooth and WiFi are both soft-blocked after a restart.
rfkill list produces
0: hci0: Bluetooth Soft blocked: yes Hard blocked: no 1: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: yes Hard blocked: no
While I am able to turn on Wireless, nothing happens, when I toggle the Bluetooth switch.
I can enable both with
rfkill unblock all, but at the next startup both are soft-blocked again. Additionally, if I unblock both, Bluetooth is turned on, but now I can't turn it off anymore. Not sure, if this is related, but I also don't have the usual Bluetooth icon in the tray area, although I was able to revive all other icons after the upgrade.
Is there any long-term solution for this problem?
If any additional hardware/software information is required, please ask.
P.S.: I have seen this permanent solution, but under
/etc/defaultI did not find any file
tlp to edit.
