Bluetooth Dongle -- not recognized

Getting your soundcard to work, using Debian on non-i386 hardware, etc

Bluetooth Dongle -- not recognized

Postby larry77 » 2020-11-19 09:19

Dear All,
I may be drowning in a cup of tea. I run Debian stable on my box with a backported 5.4 kernel.
I recently got myself a cheap bluetooth dongle and I try to see if I can get it to work.
I get some errors about a sap driver and I do not know how to fix this.

I do now know how to fix this. I would simply be able to use the dongle to pair my pc to a bluetooth headphone in the near future.
Any suggestion is appreaciated!
Cheers
