Ubuntu – Airpods 2019 bluettooth pairing problem


With ubuntu 19.10 I have been attempting to pair my Airpods with my laptop. There seems to be a problem with pairing and system is unable to add them as Bluetooth device. This happened after an upgrade from 19.04. Changing ControllerMode in /etc/bluetooth/main.conf seems to have no affect.
Any help appreciated.

Try adding ControllerMode = bredr to /etc/bluetooth/main.conf file. Restart bluetooth service using the following command sudo systemctl restart bluetooth. Then try repairing with airpods, this worked for me in 19.10.
