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 get started:
1. Install the Linux headers package from the official repository using a software manager or the command line:
sudo pacman -Sy linux-headers{codeBox}

2. Install the `rtbth-dkms-git` package from the AUR repository:
sudo pacman -S rtbth-dkms-git{codeBox}

3. Add `rtbth` at the end of this file to load the module at boot:
sudo gedit /etc/modules-load.d/modules.conf{codeBox}

Your wireless button light should turn blue.{alertInfo}

4- Now, let's test it:
  • Pair a device (e.g., a smartphone) - it works.
  • Send a file test - good, it works.
  • Receive a file test - nice, it works too.
I hope this helps make your life easier.
