Hi Im on a freash install of arch.
Im trying to use bluetoothctl to connect to a bluetooth speaker.
I am able to pair to the device

[bluetooth]# pair F0:C7:7F:F4:CA:EF
Attempting to pair with F0:C7:7F:F4:CA:EF

[CHG] Device F0:C7:7F:F4:CA:EF ServicesResolved: no
[CHG] Device F0:C7:7F:F4:CA:EF Connected: no

and the squer brackets revert to [bluetooth].
When I try and connect agian, it instantly fails

[bluetooth]# connect F0:C7:7F:F4:CA:EF
Attempting to connect to F0:C7:7F:F4:CA:EF

Note: I was origionaly going to post this on nubi corner. Im note sure when you stop beeing a newbee so if iv done something newbish sorry about that.

Re: bluetooth problems; can pair, cant connect

Make sure you have pulseaudio-bluetooth installed (assuming you're using pulseaudio).

Install it, restart pulseaudio, and then try to connect again.
