Installed Xubuntu 14.04 today and again unable to get Logitech Mini Boombox to connect via bluetooth in Linux. I have had the same problem in different versions of Linux distro's and and have tried some of the fixes suggested on the internet and this forum but each time I am unsuccessful. I am able to get the device added and it seems to pair. It connects to headset service but the sound still comes out of my PC speakers. A2DP Sink (send audio) Audio sink - stream setup fails as follows. Error message: Device added successfully but failed to connect. Error message: Connection Failed: Stream setup failed.

Would appreciate any help to sort this out.

On Debian Wheezy (I do not have an Xubuntu install handy to test), I successfully paired the device with my Lenovo ThinkPad x201, but it did not appear as a device in GNOME Sound Settings until I ran the following: sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-module-bluetooth && pacmd load-module module-bluetooth-discover – iokevins Dec 12 '14 at 19:44
