bluetooth keeps turning off in 19.04 after physically and manually turning off bluetooth device, any fix to this?

I keep having my bluetooth turned off in ubuntu 19.04. it happens if I physically turn off or disconnect my Bluetooth speaker. Bluetooth in ubuntu 19.04 won’t turn on even if the slider is on “on” mode. I have to restart ubuntu several times to make it work. I already reinstalled Bluetooth but still, it happens.

anybody here who has the same problem or have a fix for it?

thanks 🙂

faulty bluetooth

Bluetooth in Ubuntu seems not as robust! I am using a DELL inspirion Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4210U CPU @ 1.70GHz and there’s always some glitch connecting to my bose soundlink/bluetooth mouse or to any other device. The same gadgets work fine with my mobile and other windows machines.

Am i missing anything or what can i do from my part to fix this or if Ubuntu can fix this! Attached image clearly speaks.

Ubuntu 18.4 doesn’t support Mx Anywhere Bluetooth Mouse

I have an MX Anywhere 2 bluetooth mouse. I’m running 18.04.3 LTS. But I can’t get the mouse to connect.

I’ve run the whole:

  • power on
  • power off
  • scan on
  • connnect / pair MAC Address

But I just get a

Failed to connect: org.bluez.ErrorFailed” or Failed to connect: org.bluez.ErrorAuthenticationFailed

error and I’m not sure what else to try.

In 18.04 gnome-control-center finds bluetooth using default desktop, but not with fvwm

When I run gnome-control-center -v bluetooth using the Ubuntu desktop manager, things work correctly and I see Bluetooth is available and powered. When I run it using my preferred fvwm desktop manager, I’m told No Bluetooth available. Does anybody have any suggestions as to why this might be, and, even better, how to fix it? Thanks for any advice!

Bluetooth connection – Ubuntu 19.04

Good night !

Today I install Ubuntu 19.04. Until now, I’m liking of the system. I have problems of audition, and I use hearing aids. Recently I buy an appliance called Smart connect. This appliance serves to do connect with cellphone and notebook. He is an intermediary of connection. And I saw that Ubuntu 16.04 and 19.04 don’t do connection with this appliance.

So, as Canonical is always improving the system, I want to report a problem so you can work on improving it. Because, other users can be have some problem like my. The system is easy to use. So, I think it’s something for you to think too.

I don’t have sure if this is the correct place for this question.

My regards !

bluetooth headset cant connect

I have a clean-installed Lubuntu-18.04.3.
I have installed pulseaudio-module-bluetooth 1:11.1-1ubuntu7.2 amd64.
I have a new bluetooth USB dongle plugged in, and a bluetooth headset nearby.
I have rebooted.
I have a bluetooth icon showing in my taskbar.
When I click on it I get a menu, including an entry for my bluetooth headset.
The entry has a submenu with only 1 item – “Connect…”.
When I click on that a new small window opens, titled “Connect Device” and an error message “Connection failed – Use the audio menu to connect to this device”.
I’m assuming that “the audio menu” means Pavucontrol > Output Devices, but the only device there is Built in Audio Analog Stereo > Line Out.

/var/log/syslog :
Aug 9 15:28:57 i7 bluetoothd[771]: Endpoint registered: sender=:1.51 path=/MediaEndpoint/A2DPSource

I can see lots of questions being asked on this very subject, with unhelpful answers being given.
What is “the audio menu” and how do I get one?

Cannot connect to wireless Bluetooth speaker, Ubuntu LTS 18.04

The Bluetooth speaker is visible as a device from my laptop, however if I try to connect to the device through the Bluetooth GUI interface nothing happens. All it does is say “Not Set Up” next to the device prior to and following (after a short loading delay) my attempt to connect.

I have also tried connecting using bluetoothctl from the terminal. This, also, does not work, however it seems to suggest that my laptop is, in fact, able to connect to the speaker, but this connection is simply dropped after a second or two. Below is a screenshot of the output when I try to connect to the speaker through terminal (ignore the first failed pairing attempt, as the speaker had turned itself off after a period of inactivity):

terminal output

I am able to connect to the speakers with my phone, as well as my Windows 10 OS (dual-boot), thus it seems to be a problem with Ubuntu.

I have also tried using blueman to connect to the speakers, however this also gives an error, a screenshot of which is again linked below:

blueman output

The model of the speaker is a Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 2, if that’s of any use.
