I have been using Ubuntu for around 6 months and I am having an issue with bluetooth.

I have a bluetooth dongle on my pc and bought some bluetooth speakers. I have paired the devices but when I try to connect using bluetooth manager - it says stream setup failed.

I have browsed the internet for hours and can't get it to work.

I did have it working when I first bought the speakers but I can't get it working again now. It works on my windows laptop and android phone just not ubuntu. I also cannot see bluetooth as an output for sound, again this was working when i first used it, but I jsut cannot get it working again.

I am using ubuntu 13.04

I consider myself to be a ubuntu novice, any help or advice would be greatly appreciated

I'm having the same problem. Oddly enough, the same hardware is able to connect to the same bluetooth speaker with no problem at all when running Ubuntu 12.10. I think something changed in the Bluetooth implementation on 13.04, but I can't figure out what it is.
