[ubuntu] Initiate Bluetooth connection from computer

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have it setup so that my laptop acts as a set of Bluetooth speakers for my Android phone which works great. The only annoyance is that I have to initiate the connection everytime from my phone, by going into settings > bluetooth and clicking on the already paired connection to my laptop. Also the same to disconnect. The Bluetooth applet always shows my phone but doesn't have a connect (or disconnect) option, just send files. Which does work. How can I initiate the connection to the phone? I have tried some dbus commands from my Google searches but they don't work and may be old info (Hardware)
