@LibertyMom I see the Broadcom there. That may be your problem. I haven’t studied that issue but I have heard they may not be compatible with all distros. Check out this link to see if you find an answer. It looks like there might be one or more there. Notice what I searched for: connecting Broadcom bluetooth to Manjaro KDE Plasma. Make your searches as close to what’s needed as possible, to have a better chance of finding the answer.
