I just have installed Ubuntu 13.10 on my Acer Aspire v5 573g. The bluetooth was working fine with my speaker during one day but it stopped suddenly. The speaker is working with another device so it is clearly my laptop that do not handle bluetooth anymore.
I have installed
blueman which can detect my speaker but cannot connect it. I have tried:
sudo rfkill unblock all sudo hciconfig hci0 up
It does not help.
The result of
sudo rfkill list is:
0: hci0: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 3: acer-bluetooth: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
I have no idea what to do next. Any suggestion?
Edit: i have set Enable=Socket in /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf and now the device connect! But it is not recognized by PulseAudio, so i cannot redirect sound to the speaker.
Here is the syslog when the speaker connects:
Feb 16 20:21:08 mamachine pulseaudio: [pulseaudio] module-bluetooth-device.c: 00:0C:8A:A3:5E:34 is not known.
Feb 16 20:21:08 mamachine pulseaudio: [pulseaudio] module.c: Failed to load module "module-bluetooth-device" (argument: "address=00:0C:8A:A3:5E:34 profile=a2dp"): initialization failed.
How can i make my device recognized PulseAudio? Upgrade bluez? (I dont know how to do that).
