I've got a problem with my bluetooth drivers on my Ubuntu 16.04 machine. When I first load the OS, I can see the bluetooth tray icon, and even connect to my bluetooth headset. The moment I try to stream something to the headset, the bluetooth crashes, and I can't reactivate it in any way other than restarting my computer.

Some logs:

This has already happened with 2 different headsets, so I doubt it has anything to do with these headsets.

After the bluetooth crashes, this is what the bluetooth manager looks like:

bluetooth manager

As you can see, even though I activated the bluetooth, it is disabled. And even though the "Show bluetooth status in the menu bar" is checked, I see nothing.

I tried to reinstall bluez, with no change.

Thanks for the help!

Use Blueman applet 1.23 from Ubuntu software center. Which will solve your Bluetooth crashing problem

  • I did that, and when I try to connect to my headsets I'm getting Connection Failed: blueman.bluez.errors.DBusFailedError: Host is down – noodlez040 Jun 4 '17 at 15:56
  • Follow the steps 1. sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-module-bluetooth 2. pactl load-module module-Bluetooth-discover 3.Delete the device from bluetooth devices and pair it again. This will be help full to you (zach-adams.com/2014/07/bluetooth-audio-sink-stream-setup-failed) – MGJ Jun 8 '17 at 7:49
  • When I do step 2, I get an error Failure: Module initialization failed – noodlez040 Jun 10 '17 at 11:13
