How to connect bluetooth headphone


I’m trying to connect my bluetooth headphone - but still without any success.

Which steps should be considered to connect to bluetooth headphone?



Ubuntu version?
Manufacturer and headphone name/type?

Kinda unrelated, but my Google Pixel Buds won’t connect either. I am using an old Toshiba Satellite so I believe that it is related to my hardware.


I use Ubuntu 18.10

manufacturer:Philips, SHB9850NC

Maybe broadcom drivers make some problems?

Hi, I just click on the systray blutooth icon, choose it and connect. Nothing special. Would you have connected to it from phone for example?

Hi, well I didn’t connect it from my phone or other media. I try it now. Actually it should work. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
