My bluetooth keyboard isn't controlling Kodi

Creating a bug report/issue

Hi, I have a logitech harmony elite remote, that can act as a bluetooth keyboard. That’s what I’m using to control Kodi on my Raspberry Pi. I was previously using LibreELEC and Kodi could be controller by the remote as soon as the bluetooth device was connected.

I just installed Dietpi Bookworm with Kodi 20. I’ve enabled Bluetooth in advanced settings, and then scanned, pair and connected the bluetooth keyboard. But Kodi is not being controller by it.
I know the controls are sent to the Raspberry as the harmony remote tells me the device is connected.
What could cause the controls to not being picked up by Kodi ?
I would like to help with logs but I don’t know where to look. If you tell me what to do, I would happily post logs or anything I have.

Thanks in advance for your help, have a great day.
