Bluetooth 5.3 adapter not working

I bought a bluetooth 5.3 adapter that works perfectly fine on Windows, without installing any additional drivers. On Nixos, however, it’s not working. I can find the device with lsusb:

Bus 001 Device 007: ID 10d7:b012 Actions general adapter

But bluetoothctl list returns nothing. dmesg shows something interesting:

Bluetooth: hci0: Opcode 0x c5a failed: -56

I looked pretty much everywhere on the internet but couldn’t find a solution, so I came here. Hopefully someone will recognize this issue :smiley:

Did you managed to resolve this issue? I have the same problem…

Have you worked through the suggestions in Arch Wiki Bluetooth Troubleshooting?

It did not help me. I bought a different stick. It is an older tp-link one and it works just fine.

I still haven’t found a solution either but good to know that an older one works. Hopefully I’ll be able to update this issue with a solution at some point.

I am also having the same exact issue on debian/dietpi.
