    Bluetooth speaker not working.

    Bought a USB bluetooth adapter that claims it works w/Linux. I can pair it and it shows up in the list of bluetooth devices available, but I get this error message:

    Connection Failed: blueman.bluez.errors.DBusFailedError: Protocol not available.

    What do I need to do? (This is my first time ever playing w/bluetooth.)

    That does nothing at all. I even tried it with sudo.

    What dose this show then:
    Code:
    apt policy pulseaudio-module-bluetooth

    Ok
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-module-bluetooth
    pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover
    See if your headset works after reconnecting

    Took some fiddling in pavucontrol but it works finally! I was happy when it finally showed in the volume control after doing what you said. A little more playing and it finally works. Thank you!!!!

    Maybe Autodave is on a derivative that does not install that package by default?
