Bug Description

After updating from Ubuntu 14.04.5 to 16.04.1, bt-autoconnect fails to detect my bluetooth adapter.

The buttons for Audio and Bluetooth settings also seem to have no effect.

I am not sure if I really had to, but I ended up purging bt-autoconnect from the system that I used it on. I really miss it so would like to bring it back, but I was having trouble with the bluetooth connecting overall and after removed it, I was able to connect it (but I have manually connect then change the audio!).

I am willing to troubleshoot if you need anything run on my system.

At present bt-autoconnect will only work with Bluez4 because the dbus interface introduced with Bluez5 is entirely different.

We recommend using the pulseaudio module-switch-on connect for autoconnecting to a bluetooth audio device.

I see. I'm still hoping to get bt-autoconnect back at some point for quickly switching transmission modes.
