Install appears to be missing some files:

install: cannot stat '...bluez-utils-compat/src/bluez-5.64/tools/3dsp.Po': No such file or directory

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

I've been getting this error since 5.62-1:

checking for dbus-1 >= 1.6... no
configure: error: D-Bus >= 1.6 is required
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
checking dependencies...

I checked my dbus version and it's the latest version, 1.12.20-1.

An ubuntu thread stated that libdbus-1-dev libudev-dev libical-dev libreadline-dev need to be installed, but I don't see an equivalent in the Arch repo or the AUR. I double checked the dependencies listed here and I don't see anything missing.

@Galaxy: Arch Linux is using systemd and the bluez systemd integration is needed.

If you need to disable it on Artix, you can add the flag locally on your machine (you can commit the change in your local repository; it will be kept when using "git pull". That's also working with most AUR helpers as they usually do a git pull)

Would you disable systemd so that it can be built in Artix Linux ?

Aberts10 commented on 2020-11-29 07:11 (UTC)

When trying to use hcitool lescan, i can only get "Could not create connection: Input/output error"

What's going on here?

Package is updated and the below information is no longer relevant.

Building fails:

==> ERROR: Failure while downloading

The cause for this is that the diff file is not included in the bluez package anymore.


In PKGBUILD, replace the URL for refresh_adv_manager_for_non-LE_devices.diff (the last value of source) with:

Replace the last value of sha512sums with:


makepkg will extract the diff file automatically, so do not worry about that.

Build and install the package as normal.

Suggestion to package maintainer

Include the diff file in the AUR package.

If there's an issue retrieving the key, you can always skip the pgp check by passing --skippgpcheck to makepkg when building.

I'm having the same issue.

bluez-5.54.tar ... FAILED (unknown public key 06CA9F5D1DCF2659) ==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!

And then when I input: gpg --recv-keys 06CA9F5D1DCF2659

It throws: gpg: keyserver receive failed: General error

I got a "Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode)" that is not working, the only place I could make it to work was under Ubuntu thanks to this > I tried as well here in Arch but it won't work. Then I came here just to try, I couldn't install this package yet.
