How to get Bluetooth working using armbian minimal recomended image indiedroid nova

how do i get Bluetooth to function?

Did you already check out

yes, I did and found nothing helps, yet

Are you running a desktop environment? Or are you trying to use BT from the minimal command line?

i have the xfce desktop instaklled

Hmm, haven’t tried BT on XFCE on Armbian. I’ve done it on MATE and Gnome, mostly. Works well.

Was just talking to Tech Toy Tinker Co and they said that there is something that needs to be added to Cron to run at boot for some OSes to work well with BT.

move rtl8821c_fw to /lib/firmware folder
move rtl8821cs_config to /lib/firmware/rtl8821c_config
