I have recently bought a JBL Charge bluetooth/portable speaker. Now I am very very happy with this device, it is awesome, I do have a problem with it too.
At first pairing all goes well, I go through the pairing sequence and behold: It works! But then the next time you turn it on,the blue led starts blinking, it beeps and then the blue led comes on full time, which should mean it is connected, but it's not. It does not show up in sound settings as an option.
The only way I can get it to work with Ubuntu is to: a) remove the JBL Charge in bluetooth settings completely. b) go through the pairing sequence...
Anybody got any tips on settings and files that control this behaviour? It would be nice to have it working every time I turn it on.
