Bluetooth speaker problem - Lubuntu


Hi,

Im running Lubunt 17.10

I can discover and pair my bluetooth speaker. But I cant connect to it. And there is no sign of it in the pulse audio mixer.

Can anyone help me?

If you paired with it you should be connected. Check to see if audio comes out that speaker.

I found a way to make it work using the KDE bluetooth stack:
Code:
sudo apt-get install bluedevil pulseaudio-module-bluetooth -y
Code:
pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover

Hey, thank you! Helped me a lot. After a long search in many recent posts, everywhere in the internet, this simple answer did the trick.

I'm using Lubuntu 18.04 Apparently blueman was at fault here, I think.
