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!
just installed Linux Mint 19, worked right away with my CSR 4.0 dongle plugged in
yea the only one bluetooth tool that works 4 me (Linux Mint17.3)
Doesn't exist in package manager anymore. Doesn't pair with headphones.
Will NOT pair with phone! The Battle is lost...
lol as ryannerd said.. finally works per knielson's suggestion. add new ppa: cschramm/blueman
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
cant connect to any device can u help me
جيد جدا | very good
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.
dont work with nokia 6234
Use a version from http://packages.ubuntu.com/utopic/blueman for LM17+ so you don't have the module-bluetooth-discover issue
Hace muy bien su función | Its work very good
After an update to 17.1 bluetooth is not seen by mint.. tried this blueman.. nothing...
Excellent utility, but if you need A2DP support, you'll want to install a newer version from this PPA: cschramm/blueman. (See comments #29 and #92 on this bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bluez/+bug/1283003/+index?comments=all )
Can confirm works perfect on my mint 17.1 64 bit laptop. Tested file transfer with android tablet. Make sure you set tablet or phone to trusted within blueman.
