The short version of what you need to do so this hook works (detailed version on Github):

  • install this package
  • make sure AutoEnable=true exists and is enabled in /etc/bluetooth/main.conf
  • pair, connect and trust your bluetooth keyboard (instructions exist on the wiki)
  • add 'bluetooth' to your HOOKS array in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf after 'keyboard' and before 'encrypt'
  • if your bluetooth adapter does not identify as USB device or needs additional modules / files, add these to mkinicpio.conf as required
  • recreate your initramfs with mkinitcpio
