I could pair various head sets. Mpow flame and two other Chinese Bluetooth headsets. It worked well for hours and many times. My Cambridge Silicon Radio - CSR V4.0 dongle came with only Windows Drivers so I was glad to find that Linux had packages that supported it. At one point my headset would not receive sound properly, I could not switch between A2DP and another audio type for the headset. I either dropped connection or played the sound out of phase and distorted reminiscent of the Jazz in Planet of the Apes. I hunted around looking for information on it but could not find a one-stop solution explaining how this software works with the dongle. Some discussion on killing multiple processes but I'm not sure what happened. My phone handles all these headsets automatically so connecting to Linux is a comparatively elaborate process. After giving up for a day I plugged in for a fresh start and managed to get one headset up and running. My conclusion is that Linux Mint does a very good job and that the sound is usually very clear and good considering the low cost of the equipment I used but there is an opportunity somehow for more people to get involved and educate the rest of us on what makes all this magic happen or how to use the tools to troubleshoot and fix connection issues..

So far seems good. Would like a tad more info about what some of icons & graphics are actually referring to.

Absolutely brilliant ...... connects instantly, and to be honest, works far better than it did when the computer ran on Windows 7 with the standard software,

Had trouble with the default bluetooth manager in KDE 18, devices would be paired but failt to connect/setup as the wrong device type was auto-assigned and no option is proveded to change that, in Blueman you assign device type during the initial pairing operation which avoids the issue. The interface is rather clunky and takes a while to work out how to use it, also removing devices often fails!! But overall it works, so well done.

Bluean is great! I removed blueberry because it did not work at all, installed blueman in stead. blueman worked on first attempt! Great!

ttp://packages.ubuntu.com/utopic/blueman for LM17+ not available. and PPA:cschramm/blueman not for trusty. How to go on. My bluetooth headphone is recognised, paired. Message is device added but failed to connect. How to go on. I am disappointed

Why is it that every time I try to get BT to work in Linux it is an uphill battle? I bought a new BT headset and it works great with: Windows 7, My Android phone, an ancient Kindle tablet and my daughter's iPhone yet Mint 17.2 64-bit just sucks. Finally got it to pair. Use PPA: cschramm/blueman

Manages my BT devices without issue (keyboard and headphones), but error messages are not very helpful and persist between connection attempts without any reference to which device/attempt they are related to. Would be a huge bonus if it had the ability to remember and set flags on device connect such as A2DP+audio sink for my headset.

Use a version from http://packages.ubuntu.com/utopic/blueman for LM17+ so you don't have the module-bluetooth-discover issue
