(Natty) Connect only A2DP profile for bluetooth headset.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 18, 2011
I have a bluetooth headset with both support of HSP/HFP and A2DP. My goal is to connect this headset to my cell phone (over HSP/HFP) and to the PC (over A2DP) simultaneously, but ubuntu always connects both profiles.
I've tried to set following values in /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf:
But it has no effect.
Please advice how I can disable HSP/HFP connection?
HOWTO: A quick way to connect to your bluetooth headset
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 11, 2006
I think working with a bluetooth Headset is pretty annoying with linux. There's no way to quickly connect to your headset and get a visual feedback that the connection works. So here's a solution for that.
A small script which enables the connection and shows a popup via libnotify on your desktop. It will look like like this.
Please note: This won't help you to solve problems with your BT headset. You need a already configured bluetooth setup for this how-to. So before trying to do this how-to, make sure your setup is OK. For help how to do this, look e.g. here
To get this working make sure libnotify-bin is installed on your system
sudo apt-get install libnotify-bin
After that, you create the script
sudo gedit /usr/local/bin/headsetconnect
and paste this content
# HeadsetConnect 1.0 connect by Chrissss
# you need libnotify-bin to run this script
# Enter the bluetoot
Bluetooth headset HSP works, A2DP is silent/no sound
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 3, 2015
I have a headset (that is, with microphone) that connects by default as HSP. When I select System Settings > Sound > Output > Play sound through > [My headset] > Mode: > High Fidelity Playback (A2DP) I get no sound output. When I go back to HSP, I get sound.
With A2DP selected, when I click [My headset] > Test, I sometimes get the stereo test pane; sometimes the mono test pane. With the stereo pane, I never get audio when I click a test button. With the mono pane I sometimes get audio when I click test, but only sometimes. This is the only scenario when I get sound with A2DP; it sounds correct (no obvious defects).
I started pavucontrol. Under HSP, the VU meter shows I have audio. Under A2DP it also shows audio but at about 1/3 the volume. Turning up the master volume does not produce any audio in the headphones, though.

Blue-tooth headset only partially working (Ubuntu 12.04)
I have a Nexus Talknano bluetooth headset. It works fine with my Nokia 6300 phone and works in part with my computer. It works, in that I can use the microphone with Skype and hear via the sound card. However if i select the talknano for sound output nothing is heard. However I can control the slider showing the output volume by using the Talknano volume control buttons

When i get connect the talknano the following appears in seconds

How to connect bluetooth headset via command line on ubuntu 12.04
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I want to connect my computer to bluetooth headset. My computer has ubuntu 12.04 64 bits server operating system with no gui. So I must connect my computer via command line. But at internet documentation has no working example.
I have used hciconfig, hcitool, btsco e.t.c and I was not able to success.
My command line output is:

Debian Squeeze: connect to A2DP (bluetooth) through command line
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 3, 2012
I would like to turn my Lacie NAS into a A2DP bluetooth source, in order to stream audio to a bluetooth audio sink. The NAS runs Debian Squeeze in a chroot environment, and is connected to a Bluetooth dongle. I have no GUI installed on this NAS.
I can get bluetooth up with 'hciconfig hci0 up', and I can pair with the audio sink.
I created a file '~/.asoundrc' with the following contents:
Then I executed 'hciconfig hci0 voice 0x0060', which gave no output.
After that, I executed
pactl load-module module-alsa-sink device=btheadset
which gave the following error:
socket(): Address family not supported by protocol
Connection failure: Connection refused
Did I skip a step? Or is there anything else to accomplish what I want?
Ubuntu 8.1 Totem "internal data stream error" Bluetooth Headset
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 30, 2008
Totem will play a paticular video but not sound. So I get to see what the video is but there is no sound. When I configure my Bluetooth headset to hear the sound I get an internal data stream error. It only happens on paticular video formats.
Bluetooth Headset Bad Sound Quality
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 29, 2013
I have a Jabra Halo 2 headset connected to my laptop via bluetooth. I can hear whichever sound I play, but it plays it at very low quality. Whenever I connect the headset to my phone, it always plays it a higher quality sound. How can I increase the sound quality?
On the link below, the OP was able to solve a similar problem by selecting a different profile "High Fidelity Playback (A2DP)" for his headset. How would I do that on Ubuntu 13.04?

Bluetooth headset connects, but doesn't work
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 3, 2012
I've got a bluetooth adapter plugged into my laptop. I can receive/send files to and from cellphones just fine, but whenever I try to use my bluetooth headset it simply connects to the adapter and then that's it.
It doesn't output any sound to the speaker of the headset and it doesn't input any sound via the microphone.
The headset connects and actually inputs/outputs sound if I'm on Windows, but when using Ubuntu 12.04 it won't input/output anything once it connects to the adapater.
Bluetooth headset and Skype
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 9, 2008
I've been trying to get my Bluetooth headset to work with Skype, but with no luck so far.
I've got the headset itself working with ALSA, and can play sounds through it fine. However, when I try to use the headset in Skype, I get an infinite loop of connect/disconnect noises in the headset. The console output from Skype produces the following message periodically:
