Four weeks ago I submitted a couple of posts re lack of success in connecting to headphones/speakers using Bluetooth in LM17, all of which worked OK in LM16. It seemed quite a few others were suffering similar problems.
Yesterday I thought I should try again and have downloaded LM17 again, added Blueman again and still no connection. All four sets of devices I tested (speakers, soundbars and headsets) appear to pair but then disconnect immediately in Blueman setup with 'stream failures'. So I tested them all from another laptop with Windows 8.1 - perfect!
Yes I could stay with LM16, yes i could try LM13 as was suggested ... but I find it both frustrating and disappointing that something that worked very well previously now does not work at all. Maybe I am missing the point here but is anything going to change in LM17 or the recommended Blueman?
EDIT - Thanks to jeremyB for the command 'pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover' ... after which devices pair and connect and stay connected!
