Bluetooth just absolutely refuses to connect to any audio sinks. I've tried with two separate speakers that I can pair with just fine on iOS, yet when I try, I get this error in blueman:
Connection Failed: DBusFailedError: Protocol not available...
It doesn't even show up in pulseaudio (probably because I can't connect).
I've googled and come across tons of "solutions" that never work. I've honestly tried so many, I forget what I've even tried.
This is important to me because I set up Ubuntu for the purpose of having a HTPC, yet it's lacking functionality to connect with Bluetooth speakers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
[sic]is usually meant to indicate an error reproduced as-is. But "sink" is the correct term here, not an error. A bluetooth audio "sink" is something that receives bluetooth audio. This is bluetooth standard terminology, and it distinguishes the device that receives bluetooth audio from the device that sends it.
