Hello,

I cannot start Blueman with this USB dongle:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-Bluetooth-5-0-Wireless-Audio-Music-Stereo-Adapter-Dongle-receiver-For-TV-PC/224280170366?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

I have been unable to use it. Seller says it's supposed to be plug&play.

When I run

Code: [Select]
sudo lsusb -v | grep -i bluetooth

I get this output:

Code: [Select]

Can't find anywhere on that eBay page that mentions compatibility with Linux. 'Operation System: Windows 7/ 8/ 10/ XP'

The device you have has many known issues arising from the fact that it almost certainly doesn't have a genuine CSR radio - this device is widely faked with greater or lesser success (search "linux usb 0a12:0001" for more detail)

Some fixes have been applied to the Linux kernel starting at v5.8.2 which try and work around many of the issues in the various fakes - upgrading your kernel to a version later than this may help (source of this info: comments to https://gist.github.com/nevack/6b36b82d715dc025163d9e9124840a07).
