I have been trying to hook up a bluetooth speaker with my t400s laptop. I've  
not done this before so am working a bit in the dark, but I installed blueman  
(sudo apt-get install blueman) and used have used the ui to detect the  

However when I try to pair it always fails.

I am currently attempting to do this by selecting the device in the gui,  
going to Setup.., selecting 'Pair' radio button and pressing 'Next'. It hangs  
around for a bit before coming up with the message 'Failed'.

In the suslog all I see is the message:
org.bluez.Error.ConnectionAttemptFailed: Page Timeout
when I close the setup dialog.

Does anyone know how I can/should pair a bluetooth device ? Or know how I can  
get more information to troubleshoot ?
