I am relatively new to the Linux world, but have had no major issues converting from Windows. Please be patient with my explanation because I wrote it with a brand new person to Linux in mind. I have fallen in love with Linux and wish for other "newbies" to do the same :) For someone converting from windows... powerful "sudo" commands that are entered ...

I too do have the same JBL flip as yours and I do face the same issue, sometimes we dont hear any sound after pairing. I am not an expert but after hit and trial: I realized you need to click on the "bluetooth" icon on top right and choose "JBL FLIP" under scroll down and move tab to "Connection ON" and then test it by clicking on sound settings ** Short ...

Every thing actually looks good but your bluetooth probably only works maybe every third boot. This is what worked for me echo "blacklist ath3k" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath3k.conf Then we edit a file to load ath3k later in the boot cycle gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local and above the line that says exit 0 put sleep 10 and on the line below that put modprobe ...

It is not only after a reboot but also after disconnecting and reconnecting a device capable of both, HSP, and A2DP profile that Bluez always connects it in HSP (headest) mode. I can't in detail tell what is going on under the hood (Bluetooth has quite some quirks) but I suspect that we are connecting a new device as Headset rather than as an Audio or ...

Problem is with Bluez. Same issue exists on Debian 7.8 (bluez package 4.99-2). On Debian 8.0 RC1 (bluez package 5.23-2) it works, however still some warning shown for mouse: [ 43.710930] Bluetooth: HIDP (Human Interface Emulation) ver 1.2 [ 43.710940] Bluetooth: HIDP socket layer initialized [ 43.852388] hid-generic 0005:046D:B010.0001: unknown main ...

Updating to newer distributions sometimes removes incompatible programs, you may have to reinstall them. Try running this command in terminal: sudo apt-get install unity-control-center

My only solution to my own question is to revert back to the old setup. First thins is to uninstall the kernel 3.16 with (replace the version to the right one) sudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.4.0-* linux-headers-3.4.0-* Second thing is to remove everything which brought the problem sudo apt-get purge linux-generic-lts-utopic ...

Timeout settings can be configured in files found in /etc/bluetooth/ . I would start with the main.conf file first.

Promethean, I got it to work after about two weeks of trying and getting help from broadcom and intel hackers. The more verbose description is at blog post, but here's the gist: ACPI is currently broken, so WiFi is switched off. Confirm by issuing # cat /sys/bus/acpi/devices/INT33BB\:00/power_state D3cold so enable it using # echo on > ...

Usually, the interface is shown as 'disabled' when the wireless switch or key combination is set to turn off the wireless. Do you have button #3 here? Is it set to enable wireless? You might try removing the keyboard module: sudo modprobe -r hp-wmi sudo rfkill unblock all rfkill list all Any improvement? If this doesn't work, I suggest you try the ...

I am not sure what do you mean by amd, but latest version of Ubuntu (14.10) should be find in your hardware. However, if you want a stable version of Ubuntu for a long period of time, go with 14.04, which has Long Term Support. That is, if you install 14.10 you will be prompted for upgrade for next version every 6 months, I guess. 14.04 will be supported ...

Try it again but remove this part name="Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse" If it's not that then you probably have the wrong OUI. I believe it's the first half of your bluetooth mouse's address. OUI stands for Organizational Unique Identifier. Basically the first half of your MAC address says it's made by Microsoft, though mice from the same company may have ...

I assume you have a dual-boot system. I am using such a system too on my ASUS N56VZ. Thus I know you have to be careful not to disable your BT adapter when working with Windows. You can check if your Bluetooth adapter is enabled or disabled by using the Bluetooth widget offered by Ubuntu. However, for enabling Bluetooth I first have to open this widget via ...

The issue is the realtek device that is part of the wifi, see Bus 002 Device 005: ID 0bda:b728 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. This device doesn't work but causes issues with other USB bluetooth dongles when you try to use them. Later today I can build you a btusb.ko module that will ignore the Realtek as I did Disable internal RTL8723 bluetooth But make it ...
