Trying to pair my new Amazon Echo to my Xiaomi laptop I received the following error:
blueman.bluez.errors.DBusFailedError: Protocol not available
The solution is quite simple:
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-module-bluetooth
pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover
Just add something like this to your
# Enable Amazon Echo as Bluetooth speaker # First: apt-get install pulseaudio-module-bluetooth # Then: pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover
The comments will remind you on what you have to install and the last line will run the required command at you OS startup.
