My Bluetooth receiver says its paired and connected to my Ubuntu 14.04 Chromebook but does not get listed as an out device in pulseaudio volume control.

When I try:

pacmd list-sinks

My Bluetooth device does not show up. If I look at my Bluetooth device manager I see the music receiver is there and can see the activity.

What am I missing?


pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover

results in



sudo bluez-simple-agent hci0 00:12:6F:41:52:EE

results in:

New device (/org/bluez/519/hci0/dev_00_12_6F_41_52_EE)
