    Sony Ericsson MBS-100 Bluetooth Speaker on Lubuntu 11.04?

    Hi,
    i bought Sony Ericsson MBS-100 Bluetooth Speaker for my desktop computer. I paired it with bluetooth manager and blueman-both showing connection, but no sound is coming from device. This audio box should work under ubuntu, but does anyone knows how to make it work in Lubuntu?
    Thanks

    Hi,
    i made the box to work, BUT...

    Well, unfortunately, i have no luck with this speaker. If i connect it to ubuntu 11.04 on MacBook Pro speaker is working perfectly.
    But with Lubuntu on shuttle xs35gtv2 the sound comes put in waves and interrupted. So i tested live ubuntu 11.04 and have the same issue. So, it could be some hardware issue? I have usb bluetooth dongle. No idea what to do...

    I installed the same apps as in macbook, and, as said, i make the box work, but the sound comes out in waves/interrupted. Bluetooth adapter i V2.0.
    Anyone has any idea what should i do to get better output?

    Finally - actually, it seems to be hardware problem by my computer. I tested the box on dell mini 9 with Lubuntu and it worked also fine. After that i just put usb bluetooth dongle to another USB - Port - and- voila!!! - works fine!
    So it seems that one usb port on my shuttle doesn´t work as it should be.
    Thanks a lot amjjawad for help-it seems that missing rfkill was the trigger here. MAybe also pulse bluetooth module-i just installed the same files on lubuntu that i have in Ubuntu, and all should be fine.

    Re: Sony Ericsson MBS-100 Bluetooth Speaker on Lubuntu 11.04?

    UPDATE: actually i was happy to early. The box is playing good only at first connection after reboot. As soon as i close app (chrome, vlc) and open another and play something, i have that issue again. Does anyone knows what it should be, or what do i need to make it always working fine as by the first connection?

    Found help here:
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pu ... y_problems

    1. cp /etc/pulse/default.pa ~/.pulse/default.pa
    2. comment out the "load-module module-suspend-on-idle" line in ~/.pulse/default.pa
    3. pulseaudio -k && pulseaudio --start


    So, finally the box is working as it should. But there is another problem now. If the bt speaker connected wit the computer is, wifi just stops to work-i mean, can not load movies/clips from internet with the box plugged in.


    So, for new problem i started new thread:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1853104

    If anyone can help...
