I am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and after the recent upgrade to the final release on April 26, 2018, I found that my laptop (Dell Inspiron 1440) was unable to connect to my Bluetooth speakers using a generic USB Bluetooth dongle which was earlier working perfectly in Ubuntu 17.10 Any help in this regard would be highly appreciated.

  1. Install "synaptic".
  2. Search synaptic to ensure "bluez" is installed.
  3. Use synaptic to search and install "blueman".
  4. reboot.
  5. If no icon in task bar, search for "bluetooth manager" in your apps, and start it. Follow the screens to connect your device.
