I have JBL bluetooth speakers like this one.
With Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Gnome) I get it to pair with my pc, either with gnome-bluez or blueman, but I am unable to reproduce any sound.
I stumbled upon this website here, but did not managed to get it to work. I see that I cannot change my speakers in the gnome sound menu from internal to the one unplugged (to my bluetooth speakers), but I can see another profile "unplugged" available with pavucontrol. However, when I change it to that profile, I hear no sound.
The aforementioned blog post says to change the connection with the JBL Flip from headset mode to A2DP mode in blueman, but I received the following error message "the device has been added successfully, but failed to connect with ubuntu".
Does anyone know how to solve that issue?
P.S.: I see a lot of unanswered/ unresolved question to this all over the Internet, I cannot believe that Ubuntu (14.04) would not handle this speakers.
