SUpport for UB500 bluetooth dongle

  • Hello,

    I would like to use the UB500 TP-link USB bluetooth dongle. I saw that some more recent linux kernels supported it.


    Bash
    uname -a
    Linux LibreELEC 5.10.76 #1 SMP Sat Mar 5 19:12:54 CET 2022 x86_64 GNU/Linux




    dmesg | grep -i bluetooth


    Bash

  • Clean boot an LE11 image and run "dmesg | paste" and share the URL so we can see the full log. From this we can see if there's any evidence of missing firmware or missing driver. The snippets you've shared are not showing much.
