Getting bluetooth / blueman to work on Mint 17

If you’re having problems getting bluetooth devices to work on Mint 17, try the following:

  1. Install blueman, bluez, and pulseaudio-module-bluetooth with all suggested packages.
  2. In the terminal, run the command: pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover

It’s this missing module that seems to be causing many of the problems. This worked for me. See more detailed instructions at the source of this information:

    Thanks, this solved my bluetooth headaches.
    as for my experience, i had messed up my config so what i did was:

    sudo apt-get remove bluez*


    sudo apt-get install blueman bluez pulseaudio-module-bluetooth

    and everything returned to normal
