I solved replacing the gnome bluetooth default indicator with blueman (which is even better and has more options, I really wonder why it is not default) cd /usr/share/upstart/sessions sudo mv indicator-bluetooth.conf indicator-bluetooth.conf.old sudo apt install blueman Then I restarted and reassociated the mouse. Now it works flawlessly at any time.

You need to press and hold the POWER button for more than 7 seconds. Make sure that the indicator flashes blue and red alternately after you release the button. That's how you connect it on ubuntu. Cheers :)

I have had a similar problem with a set of speakers with a 'headset' function. I found that if I changed the Mode: from 'High fidelity playback' to 'Headset head unit' in sound settings under output I got sound (although poor quality). I then disconnected and reconnected and could switch back to high fidelity without any trouble.

pulseaudio -k did the trick. Headset started appearing.

I also have a similar problem. I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and a Microsoft Designer Mouse. The mouse works on bootup but then stops working after a random amount of time. Turning bluetooth off and on again using the icon in the notification bar works for me, but this is really annoying.

If the machine does not have Bluetooth built into it, it will probably need the transceiver. Another option is to purchase a USB hub, which will give you more ports. Best bet is, check with Dell as to what mouse they recommend will work with the machine, it really is not an Ubuntu issue per se, at least not yet. Chris

Depending exactly what the issue is, there are a bunch of options. Here are a few. 1. Start the bluetooth daemon Go to your terminal and type : sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth start 2. Reinstall packages If this doesn't work, go to your terminal and type : sudo apt-get purge blueman bluez-utils bluez bluetooth sudo apt-get install blueman bluez-utils ...

This was a pain in the button to get working. I really wanted to make a precise answer but I think the tech is a little flaky and the tools are a little trying. I did it once successfully, went to do it again from my notes to make sure my answer was sound and it took me another hour of trying to get it to take. These are the steps I followed on Ubuntu 16.04 ...

I managed to get my Anywhere MX2 to work on Ubuntu 16.04 thanks to this post. After connecting the mouse in the "Bluetooth" configuration - it was still not working.

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 was able to make it work through the command line based on this Ask Ubuntu answer and this Ubuntu Forums thread.

In the bluetoothctl prompt, type the following commands: power on agent on ...

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). ...

Check if you've got the following packets installed: bluez-utils libopenobex1 gnome-bluetooth blueman If you are using an USB-device check if it is recognised correctly: lsusb | grep Bluetooth Also try runnig the following command to restart the bluetooth service: sudo service bluetooth restart

That will be a combination of setting up a Bluetooth network (for Ubuntu; for Windows you'd better ask on SuperUser as it would be off topic here and most people here don't know that much about Windows) and then an SSH server on Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install openssh-server The two are pretty unrelated as SSH will work over any TCP/IP network once you ...

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 ...

Something to note about bluetooth, it has limited bandwidth and only operates according to specific schemas: a2dp is stereo high quality audio playback only hsp/hfp is mono audio in full duplex which allows both a play and record. a bluetooth audio device can do one connection at once so will be one or the other at a given time. I get round this by using ...

I don't know over bluetooth, but you can do it if you are in the same Lan, via ssh or xrdp =) ssh: sudo apt-get install opensshserver <- ubuntu Download putty.exe <- windows xrdp sudo apt-get install rdesktop (or freerdp-x11) <- ubuntu remote desktop for windows is installed by default I hope this could help you mate.

For better support please upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04+, but we will still attempt to provide support. As for your question, sometimes there is enough blame to go around. For example, 15.10 is an old version, meaning newer extensions may not be programmed to run with it, but instead to function with 16.**. Another reason could be Mozilla's very known ...

Based on the line "active profile: <off>" the sound profile didn't activate. One program that is easy to use to change the profile is pavucontrol.

As far as I know the Bluetooth facility of the phablet is restricted to connecting just one single device. As a result, you can connect either a BT keyboard or else a BT mouse. Another viable BT solution would be to connect one of those fancy BT keyboards with an integrated touchpad which figures as a single device.

If low battery charge is not the issue (which it may well be, based on Your description), one thing that may fix Your issue would be to try a newer kernel version. Upgrading Your kernel may seem difficult, but it is actually fairly straight forward, provided that there are newer versions packaged and available (which is almost always the case). To check ...

I have had the same issue on a HP Stream 11 laptop. A temporary solution for my laptop is to turn aeroplane mode on and off. A hard solution for resetting your wirless chip on start up would be to add these lines to the end of your .bashrc: nmcli networking off nmcli networking on

You should look for Bluetooth tethering settings on Your tablet. After enabling it, You should check Your computer if it supports PAN profile in user role. The first part is very easy, but the second one might be hard. I'd check if BlueZ in version on Your system supports PAN.

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

Try this: sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth restart pulseaudio -k pulseaudio --start Then go to the audio manager, and make sure the program that's generating audio has the Bluetooth "sink" as output. Reference link - https://github.com/blueman-project/blueman/issues/304

I can confirm that it works with Ubuntu 16.04LTS. If you use the unifying receiver that came with the mouse it will already be paired when you plug it in. If you wish to pair to a pre-existing unifying receiver you should install Solaar, which provides basic control over pairing, and limited configuration options for some Logitech peripherals. I used a ...

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. ...

So I think I can answer myself...

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.
