I was able to get bluetooth tethering working in 14.04 with my lg phone. AT&T would not authorize my phone to do this without upgrading to a 5gb+ plan. I installed https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.co.nicumaru.bluetoothtetheronoff and this seems to flip the switch allowing me to tether that AT&T and/or LG was blocking.

On Ubuntu Gnome 14.10 beta 1 Bluetooth didn't recognize my headset either. It never finished pairing. @user308564 answer nearly worked for me. However, bluez-hcidump was not available. I only removed it from the package list and voilà, pairing worked correctly. sudo apt-get install bluez bluez-alsa bluez-audio bluez-btsco bluez-compat bluez-cups ...

update-rc.d is indeed the usual way...to change a sysvinit (not upstart, not systemd) init priority. Those sysvinit scripts are in /etc/init.d But Upstart doesn't use update-rc.d nor /etc/init.d (except for legacy compatibility). So the short answer to your question is that the bluetooth software uses Upstart jobs instead of sysvinit scripts. One good way ...

After upgrading to 14.04 LTS from 12.04 LTS, ubuntu bluetooth could not be set to high fidelity (A2DP). However, if I momentarily disable WiFi and then reconnect to my headset, high fidelity is possible. Re-enabling WiFi does not effect the now-enabled high fidelity setting and WiFi appears to be working as normal.

I finally found a solution (in fact several one): Add threadirqs to my kernel params was better, but this was not enough, I also had to install rtirq-init I then had an (almost) perfect bt sound playback. Another option seems to use linux-lowlatency kernel. I still have to test this, but it should work. What is unclear is the drackbacks (power ...

I see you had the Ubuntu Software Center open while trying to Bluetooth your image into your system. Sometimes, the Software Center will interfere with other operations. Have you tried doing it when no other software was running?

Yes it does have bluetooth. I've purchased the speaker and it works really well. I installed this sound switcher I found on OMG Ubuntu (http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2014/02/sound-switcher-app-ubuntu) to change my output device quickly.

This may not apply though I went between dell and logitech support to find out why my logitech BT mice never autoconnect back to the systems and nobody ever supports it. I had to learn the hard way.
