Trying to have a USB Bluetooth adapter to work

Hello all,

I am new to Linux and here smile, and bought a 2nd hand bunsenlabs NUC machine that I'm having fun using and discovering.

Right now I bought a Logilink USB Bluetooth V4.0 dongle and would like to have it work with my bunsenlabs install.

I tried to follow the steps in https://www.maketecheasier.com/setup-bl … -in-linux/ but I can't have it work, maybe someone can help me here.
The pairing seems to work (not sure how I managed that...) but no sound is coming out of my loudspeaker.

Thank a lot !
Cheers
Stephan

...but I can't have it work...

Please be more explicit hmm 

eg Did you install the required packages? Does the bluetooth manager gui run? Are devices listed?

Perhaps a Debian-specific HowTo would be more appropriate...https://wiki.debian.org/BluetoothUser

I did these:
  sudo apt-get install bluetooth bluez bluez-tools rfkill
and it worked.

Then I did this
  sudo rfkill list
and no bluetooth was blocked smile

Then I ran this
  sudo service bluetooth start
and the service seems to be running.

Have you tried pairing the devices yet?

Re: Trying to have a USB Bluetooth adapter to work

And via bluetooth manager you may need to add the device (speaker) as a trusted device
