      The problem high probably isn’t dependent on init. What you could try is a antiX full live stick.
      antiX full by default has two kernels installed which you can choose between during boot up.It also has bluetooth installed by default, though you have to activate it on the live session.

        If this is the same old device you mentioned in a previous topic, that had issues detecting other devices, then the problem could still be the same.

        The device is very old and uses an old Bluetooth standard. Probably some devices can detect it, but it will be difficult to get it to work properly. I remember Emmabuntus worked for it, but the kernel version used is probably also different.

          i can confirm that the bluetooth dongle is working. i have a emmabuntüs notebook and a debian notebook on both it works.

          i can try antiX-full but which intit should i download/test?

            The init doesn’t matter. The runit version is the easiest to manage services (for the Graphical tool), but you can enable services with the same commands.

            sudo update-rc.d bluetooth defaults
            sudo service bluetooth start

                i boot with

                antiX-23-runit_x64-full.iso

                and start with kernel for modern pc.

                Bluez daemon is not running, blueman-manager cannot continue.
                this probably means that there were no bluetooth adapters detected or Bluetooth was not started

                but bluetooth is started. it try kernel for old pc.

                    If you are booting live, remove the disable=lxF ‘cheat’ at the boot menu

                    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

                    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

                        Do you not see it at the boot menu screen?

                            Did you try the antiX live stick on these notebooks?

                              Just learned on my installed system antiX 23 full iso sysvinit that any saved located devices bluetooth finds. Needs to be deleted. Then close and restart blueman.

                              Hit search. If you were getting when not connecting

                              $ blueman-manager
                              blueman-manager 17.25.06 WARNING  ManagerDeviceMenu:145 fail      : fail g-dbus-error-quark: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Failed: blueman.bluez.errors.DBusFailedError:  br-connection-unknown
                               (0)
                              

                              When nothing connects. My above steps fixed that error and blueman started working again.
                              Don’t know why though. Just poke and hope. You have to start blueman in terminal to read this like I did.

                              So when my soundmine external speaker showed up from previous searches and hookups. I had to delete it and start over. I am back on pipewire from pulseaudio on this laptop. I had borked the pipewire install messing with settings and ran pulseaudio for a few days. Switched back to virgin pipewire install after mlocate showed me some files left over from previous pipewire install.

                                Bluetooth on Debian based systems has been a problem for years, though I thought that the main problem may have been solved.

                                Let us know if you can consistently resolve this or not.

                                  i have a emmabuntüs notebook and a debian notebook on both it works.

                                  Did you try the antiX live stick on these notebooks?

                                  yes i do it before
