Hi, I’m a new user of opensuse, although have been using Linux for years.
When I tried the live boot version of tumbleweed, bluetooth was working. Then I installed the dvd edition with kde desktop. Unfortunately, bluetooth isn’t working now.
The bluetooth chip is rtl8723be. Some of you might know that this is a problematic chip, and doesn’t work on many distros. There is another issue with this chip that the wifi signal is shown less. This can be fixed(and I fixed it) by setting the ant_sel option, and sometimes requires installing a driver provided here https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new . But I didn’t have to install that driver, it worked by simply setting that option.
So what should I do to get bluetooth working? should I try the above driver? has anyone fixed this?
Here are some details that might be helpful

Once again, note that it did work with the live boot version. thanks!
