- Ubuntu 15.10
- kernel 4.2.0-22-generic
- bluez 5.35-0ubuntu2
- Dell m3800, Broadcom BCM4352 wifi/bt module
I followed other instructions on this help site for getting a proper driver installed for my BCM4352 wifi/bt card, and wireless works fine and BT worked okay to pair an Apple magic trackpad.
When I try to pair my Jaybird X2 headset, it pairs, but won't "connect" and I'm unsure what else to try. I contacted Jaybird support and they showed me how to factory reset the headset to wipe all pairing, but adding it back on my system it pairs but no audio controls are present.
When I use the bluetooth manager to set up the device I get a message saying "Device paired successfully, but failed to connect". I have it marked as 'trusted' (whatever that means) but it hasn't helped.
When I go through system settings for Bluetooth I see the device, it shows it's paired, but the connection button is ghosted:
Since my trackpad works just fine, I'm not sure this is a BT driver issue, but perhaps an issue with my headset, though the headset is paired with and works fine with the Windows 10 installation on this laptop, and also on my Nexus 6 and a workstation at home which is also dual-booted as Linux/Win10. Jaybird tells me the headset can pair with up to 10 devices so it's not a limitation of pairing too many times.
EDIT: Jaybird says pairing must use passcode 0000 yet there's on option for that in Ubuntu 15.10 ... I only get options for pairing using a random PIN or not to connect at all. I'm curious if this is the root of the problem, and how I should get the '0000' option back? (it's been there in previous Ubuntu versions)
