Re: Problem with finding bluetooth devices

Ok, well, the next step is to update your kernel to the 4.11 series. You'll find it in Update Manager. Call out if you need help doing the update. Again, you'll need to reboot. Finally, if that doesn't get you going, it's time for the big hammer... Go to this page and download this file: linux-firm...

Re: Problem with finding bluetooth devices

A recent update made changes to pulseaudio where bluetooth headphones weren't being recognised correctly. If you haven't already done so, check for an update in Update Manager to pulseaudio 1:8.0-0ubuntu3.4 , and apply it. You should probably reboot afterwards then try again. Of course, I don't exp...
