Bluetooth not connecting to cell phone?


Running Linux Mint 18 (Sarah) and can't connect to my Samsung Android Cell Phone using Bluetooth. When trying to set-up it loops back to not set-up. Any help appreciated.

Thanks,
Jack

Hi jakmak52, I see you note that you cannot attach a screenshot in your edit content.

Under advanced edit mode, "Go Advanced" in the buttons, there should be a paperclip icon to allow you to upload one or more files. There are size limitations so as to avoid taking up excessive space on the LQ servers. Maybe your file was too large, consider reducing the resolution or converting to a compressed image format.

You should also indicate where this setup loop is occurring, in Mint or on the phone and describe the process you're following in more detail. Next also describe what you intend to communicate over this pairing, such as pictures, files, or audio/video.
