Bluetooth Audio problem: Gaps in music Ubuntu 14.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 7, 2014
At this moment there is only few thing holding me back to Windows and this is one of the biggest ones: My Bluetooth audio streaming is not working as expected:
When I listen music (usually via Spotify, it can be from Online Spotify or from Client, doesn't matter) it can play just fine trough my home theater, but way too often the music starts to have gaps and it starts skipping forward to "catch" that gap. And time to time it losts the connection entirelly and that is super-annoying, as you can image . Then I have to re-connect which doesn't work all the time straight away, so I have to stop playing music, re-connect and then try again.
Some specs from my computer: Acer aspire V3-771G (i7-versio of the processor) and my bluetooth and WiFI are from Atheros. I have Procaster bluetooth receiver BT-02 in my home theater.
Now running Ubuntu 14.04
Please help me out with this. Thank you!
any bluetooth audio functionality inside ubuntu studio (13.04)?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 25, 2013
for nearly two months i'm trying to use bluetooth audio equipment like headset, handsfree set or external speaker with ubuntu studio.
unfortuneately it always fails. the bluedio H9 headset seems to connect properly but is non functional and the dual BT100 speaker connects for about 2 seconds but looses connection then.
the only device that works thru bluetooth here is my logilink mouse.
just tried it at different computers, with different bluetooth hw. i even bought a new bluetooth 4.0 EDR compliant dongle, but ubuntu studio behaves always in the same way.
meanwhile i'm still wondering whether ubuntu studio supports bluetooth audio devices, or not.
anybody out there who managed to use some bluetooth audio equipement inside ubuntu studio ?
or somebody who shares my expericence ?

Ubuntu 13 Audio Problems & Digital Audio Output
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 1, 2013
I am now running Ubuntu 13.04 using the Gnome desktop.
I upgraded from Ubuntu 12.10, which had NO audio problems.
Ever since upgrading to Ubuntu 13 on ALL games have sound problems
REMINDER: These same games did NOT have problems using Ubuntu 12.10
Two games have to be started using the padsp as prefix on the launcher command-line to get sound at all. My Steam games (of course) have no prefix.
1) The major sound problem is being choppy or having a reverb quality. A driver problem (Ubuntu 13 using wrong drivers, since Ubuntu 12 had no problem)
2) Just noticed that my [Sound Option] Digital Output (S/PDIF) Built-in Audio does NOT work, speaker test fails. Note I do not know if Ubuntu 12 had the same problem since I had no reason to check.
Ubuntu 12 audio not working after xinitrc customization
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 10, 2012
I am customizing my Ubuntu 12 install to use as an HMI interface and for this I am starting my app from ".xinitrc" file. I am running this app as a non-root user.
Audio output is required for the app's alarm system. But once I customize xinitrc audio is not working. These are the stuff I tried:
1) Installed espeak ( text to speech ). I get audio when I run espaek as root. But not otherwise.
2) I added "/usr/bin/start-pulseaudio-x11" in xinitrc
3) added the user to the group "audio".
Still no audio
Any help will be appreciated.

bluetooth audio on Debian Lenny

I'm unable to get bluetooth to pair with a Sony Ericsson HBH-DS220 headset. I can see it both via the Bluetooth "browser" and with an "hcitool scan" command, but so far I can't seem to make a connection via either method.
Here are the bluetooth-related packages I currently have installed:

iPhone OS3.0 and Ubuntu Bluetooth Teathering
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 18, 2009
Yay, Apple now break AT&T strangle hold on the iPhone and you are allowed to tether it where the carrier permits, and here in NZ, Vodafone allows it. 8)
So I have tested this from Windows7RC, Bluetooth pairs up, new adapter installed, I get a new IP Address and the phone acts like a router. Cool. Same on My Mac.
Now I boot to Ubuntu 9.04 - still learning my way around Linux though so please be gentle with me 8)
I got the phone and my laptop to pair, and the phone reports a good connection, but then I am completely at a loss as to how to configure the networking. The Network manager still only shows the wired and wifi interfaces I normally have. Is there a way to setup/configure the bluetooth connection too?
AdvancedN 6230 bluetooth audio
- date: January 5, 2012
I have a gazelle professional (gazp6) with an intel advanced-n 6230 wifi/bt adapter (8086:0189 Intel Corp.) and a pair of bluetooth headphones (rf-mab2) which I cannot get to connect with the internal bluetooth. I also cannot transfer a file to my android phone. I can do both of these things just fine with my USB wifi adapter.
I'm listing syslogs from trying to connect my headphones below, as they are my main concern. I can provide any additional information necessary.
I'm running Kubuntu 11.10 with the s76 driver installed.
