Have you paired and trusted the device already?
yes, and it seemed to work.
you could list all connected devices in pulseaudio with
$ pactl list short
--> pactl list short
0 module-alsa-sink device=default
1 module-alsa-source device=default
0 alsa_output.default module-alsa-sink.c s16le 2ch 44100Hz IDLE
0 alsa_output.default.monitor module-alsa-sink.c s16le 2ch 44100Hz IDLE
1 alsa_input.default module-alsa-source.c s16le 2ch 44100Hz IDLE
0 protocol-native.c pactl
but I have before to check whether pulseaudio is still alive, as it exits very often, as if there was a timeout,
which is not the case.
I also tried "pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover" with the
Connection failure: Connection refused
pa_context_connect() failed: Connection refused
Are you trying to do this from root?
no, but same remark as above for pulseaudio.
-->pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover
I tried again bluetoothctl:
bluetooth]# scan on

As I don't need to use the speaker far from the laptop, I solved
the problem by ordering a small wired speaker ...
But it's a pity that this basic facility is so difficult to setup on Linux,
and so easy on Windows( 30 seconds)
