I had the same problem after upgrading to 16.04. For me, there isn't a real fix, but I can get the speaker to work. I'm running Kubuntu so these steps are for KDE, and I'm not sure what the equivalent Unity steps are, but I'd imagine they're similar. Here's what I did: Let the speaker connect. In your audio settings, change the profile to "Headset Head ...

The Logitech K380 Multi-device bluetooth keyboard works perfectly for me, I love it, and a few more people do so too: http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/the-best-bluetooth-keyboard/ I was not so lucky with a few pointer devices I had lying around: the first-gen Apple Magic Trackpad and the Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Mouse 3600 are not working just yet.

It should be possible. Check if the necessary packages are installed: dpkg -l bluez pulseaudio-module-bluetooth python-gobject python-gobject-2 if not, install them. Edit your /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf and uncomment or add [A2DP] Enable=Source,Sink,Media,Socket SCORouting=PCM AutoConnect=true The above is enough to make a Samsung Galaxy S5 connect. ...

I had the same issue. I read some answers and this is the gist of it: Find ID of your device: $ lsusb | grep Bluetooth My output for example: Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0a5c:21d7 Broadcom Corp. BCM43142 Bluetooth 4.0 from which 0a5c:21d7 should be remembered. Get a hex file for your device: After searching for bluetooth drivers in Google I have ...

I was able to work around this issue by using the "blueman" package to pair the keyboard.

I am using SONY MDR-XZ770BN and I had no problems with Ubuntu 14.04 using the default bluetooth. After installing 16.04 the High Fidelity Playback A2DP Sink was not working. Problem was solved after installing the Blueman manager and selecting the Audio Sink option. Still experiencing some minor issues as sometimes I have to switch off and on the bluetooth ...

There are several bugs opened about this, check for example this one (started in 15.05) and this other one, quite older; the causes in general are not well understood. The fix that worked for me is the following --- thanks to user RobertFM in launchpad and SimFox3 in Arch forums. All the following instructions must be executed from a root shell (sudo -i). ...

The only way I have been able to do this is by playing music via the media player and then viewing other screens. This does mean that I do not have the selection of web sites such as YouTube. The idea that you could use one screen to play music and another to play a game is a good one.

I guess you are playing the music by using the browser. Normally, only that app is being executed which is currently shown at your screen. This is done to bring the best performance to the currently used app and to extend your battery life. This means if you switch from the browser to the game, the browsers stops running and your game continues ...

I got a TECHGEAR® [Active Strike Pro] Slim Bluetooth Wireless UK QWERTY Keyboard with Mouse Touchpad from Amazon. Works really well. Ok feel to it. Only real downside is when using mousepad it has a constant habit of bringing up the today scope, which can be annoying. Tried it on the bq M10.

Basic system software packages like ubuntu-desktop, unity-control-center and unity-control-center-signon depend on the pulseaudio package. If you uninstall pulseaudio, those packages will be removed too, leaving your system pretty empty. To fix this, you could reinstall those packages using the package manager: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop ...

I Had exactly the same issue. Solved it with this thread: PulseAudio can not load bluetooth module 15.10/16.04 After reboot reconnect your speaker and it would appear as a sound device.

I have exactly the same problem you are describing, when I choose A2DP mode while my bluetooth speaker is selected I automatically get switched to the built in audio while in the sound menu. Sometimes If I switch to A2DP during playback whatever I am playing freezes and does not start to play until I select something else. I often get it working after ...
