RTL8723BE Bluetooth not working. Specifically, the driver cannot be detected at all:
hciconfig -areturns absolutely nothing.
hcitool devjust returns
Already tried using the solution in this question: RTL8723BE Bluetooth does not work
Prior to installing the lwfinger solution, the bluetooth can be turned on but cannot detect other devices.
Before showing the script for the bluetooth driver, here is what I ran for the Wifi driver (from a fresh install):
## Wifi driver sudo apt-get install firmware-realtek wireless-tools ## But range is poor so mkdir ~/git-clones cd ~/git-clones git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new.git cd rtlwifi_new.git make sudo make install sudo modprobe -rv rtl8723be sudo modprobe -v rtl8723be ant_sel=2 sudo ip link set wlan0 up sudo iw dev wlan0 scan echo "options rtl8723be ant_sel=2" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/50-rtl8723be.conf
Now here is what I ran specifically for the bluetooth driver:
## Bluetooth driver cd ~/git-clones git clone -b troy https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8723au_bt.git cd rtl8723au_bt make sudo make install sudo reboot
Also attempted to install the rar file from this link: https://github.com/troy-tan/driver_store/tree/master/bluetooth/8723BE . Unpacked this rar and then
sudo make install -s as prescribed in the README file. Still nothing happens.
Where did I go wrong?
