nice summary, saved me 45-90 minutes.
Can now listen to music and wash dishes at the same time. Thanks for the Bluetooth post!
Thanks so much for the "How to get Bluetooth headphones to work with Ubuntu" article from August 2018. I recently bought a Mpow Flame headset and have been struggling to pair it with my Ubuntu 16.04 laptop. Following the steps you outlined to use blueman, I was able to pair it (trying to do so with the standard BT manager would lock up the OS) and then change the audio profile. Thank you!
