[Solved]Bluetooth connecting but no sound

Postby Ruthawen » Sun Nov 26, 2017 7:17 pm

I'm running Linux Mint 18.2, Sonya. I use Blueman to manage my Bluetooth devices. I'm trying to connect a Bluetooth speaker to my laptop. The speaker will connect, but the sound still comes from my laptop, not the speaker.

Check Sound Settings and see if you can change the output to the bluetooth speakers

That worked. Thank you! I'd been expecting something more difficult.
