worked fine, but I was not able to select which Bluetooth controller to use
(onboard or USB dongle), or turn it on or off - previously I could.  I
turned on Bluetooth with the GUI tool included with KDE, and the default
controller was the one I wanted to use.

I'll investigate further when I get the chance, but can someone else test?
You don't even need a Bluetooth dive computer; just see if you can power
Bluetooth on or off through Subsurface, select the controller if you have
more than one, and scan and try to pair a device (e.g. your phone).
