Bluetooth not working

  • Problem
  • Updated 5 years ago
I have an Asus 1005ha. Using the 1.6 beta, the bluetooth worked in it. However, the final 1.6 version does not have the bluetooth working in it. Is there a fix to this?

Maybe I should explain what my problem is.

I would like to be able to use bluetooth to link my cell phone (Nokia 6262 I am a T-mobile customer) to my Asus EEE PC 4G which has a bluetooth adapter plugged in.

I have been trying to figure out how to use the 'Terminal Mode' to add lines ( I guess???) so I can add Blueman to my netbook. I have tried to add the program on the GUI side, but it doesn't seem to want to down load completely.

How do I add bluetooth dial up to Easy Peasy?

Thanks!

1. Open Terminal.
2. Enter the following commands one at a time (you can paste in Terminal by right-clicking):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:blueman/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install blueman
3. Reboot. Blueman should now be installed.

Does this work for you? If not, tell us what happened.

Okay, I entered the lines you told me to enter.

It all loaded ok.....

Problem is, it won't open when I click on it

??????

Shall I delete the old BT programs?

The ones that came with the copy of EP?

Actually, I figured out how to get blue-tooth to work

First, I am now using Easy Peasy on a Fujitsu Lifebook U810.

Tiny, but still usable

Anyway, I discovered that to get Blueman to work, I had to load EP, then download all of the updates before downloading Blueman.

Now I can link with my Bluetooth enabled cell phone for dial up networking just great, but I have a new problem.

I want to use bluetooth headphones with my U810.

Everything sets up fine, I hear the multiple beeps showing that my headphone have connected, Only problem is, the sound still comes out of the speakers, not the headphones.

So what do I do to get sound to come out of the headphones?

Try setting it as Audio Sink rather than as Headset Service.

If that doesn't do the trick, there's a detailed walkthrough here:

Be sure to scroll down far enough to read the "KNOWN ISSUES" section before you start tinkering.

I did that, but sound was still coming from the built in speaker.

So I checked out 'Preferences' for sound. Over there I discovered that 'Hardware' and 'Output' have to match or I'll get sound from the built in speakers or no sound at all.....

Just tht I'd mention it!
