I have been using Arch for a few years but I recently had to put Ubuntu on one of my computers because I bought some bluetooth speakers or headset as it is more commonly recognized by software. I googled around and found that I need to put 'Enable=Socket' in /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf. This gets me closer and allows me to pair, but the speakers never show up as an audio output in pavucontrol. Somehow this works in Ubuntu. If it works in Ubuntu, it has to be able to work in Arch. In blueman I right click and press audio sync and it tells me a failure message that i can't remember cuz i'm at work. If there are any logs that would be useful, let me know and i will post them. dmesg does not show anything useful. Any help is appreciated.
