I am trying to scan and connect to Bluetooth devices with the Qt Bluetooth API. In order to connect to a device i have to start a device scan. I do this by calling "void QBluetoothDeviceDiscoveryAgent::start()" ( ”QBluetoothDeviceDiscoveryAgent” ) . When i call start() i get:
qt.bluetooth.android: ACCESS_COARSE|FINE_LOCATION permission available
qt.bluetooth.android: Search not possible due to turned off Location service
And there will not pop up some nearby Bluetooth devices. It feels like the Qt Bluetooth API believes that there is no permissions granted. Or what do they mean with ”Location service”?
I get this problems on Lenovo TB-8505F with Android 10 and Samsung Galaxy S9 (SM-G965F) with Android 10. But not on devices like Lenovo TB-8504X (Android 8.1.0) and Samsung Galaxy S10 SM-G973F (Android 10)
I can not really test this on emulators, i get ”qt.bluetooth.android: Device does not support Bluetooth”.
I also do these permission-checks before i do the QBluetoothDeviceDiscoveryAgent::start()
And in the ”App info” for my app i can see that ”Location”-permissions is Enabled.
I am using:
This ”Location service”-problems occurs on Qt 5.14.2 or higher. On Qt 5.14.1 i can scan for devices and connect.
What should i do to be able to scan for Bluetooth devices with for example Lenovo TB-8505F on Qt 5.14.2 or later? Or is there a bug in the Qt Bluetooth API ? Someone who have a clue?
