How to install and configure Mediatek Ralink 3290 Bluetooth on Arch Linux (Manjaro-Antergos & other Arch based distro) ?


In this Tutorial

We will install and configure MediaTek Ralink 3290 Bluetooth on Arch linux: 
 
Let's start 

 
First we install the Linux headers package from the official repository using a software manager or the command line:
sudo pacman -Sy linux-headers
Second we install the rtbth-dkms-git package from the AUR repository:
sudo pacman -S rtbth-dkms-git
Now we should add rtbth at the end of this file to make the module load at boot:
sudo gedit /etc/modules-load.d/modules.conf

And now you can see the difference

your wireless button light should turn to blue

Now let's test it 
 
pair a device " a smartphone on this case"... works
send a file test… good it works
receive a file test… nice it works too


I Hope this helps making Your life easier.
