HTC Hero and Ubuntu Bluetooth BlueProximity
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 22, 2009
I recently got an HTC Hero and wanted to set it up with blueproximity with my laptop.
Prior to the hero I had a cheep little nokia that was working perfectly on blueproximity so I think I can attribute this to the hero alone.
HTC Hero (sprint) firmware 1.5
Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 on ASUS N70sv
Bluetooth Applet 1.8
I can pair the devices, but then the phone reads "paired but not connected" under "Menu -> Settings -> Wireless Controls -> Bluetooth Settings"
I can pair the devices, but the bluetooth applet under "Bluetooth Applet Context Menu -> Preferences" shows the device as disconnected no matter how much I hit connect icon.
I can pair the devices, but blueproximity constantly connects/disconnects to the device. It seems like it just goes between connected/disconnected each second.
Does anyone have any experiences with BlueProximity and the HTC Hero, and if so were you able to get it to work? Any

Problems with Bluetooth headset in Feisty
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 26, 2007
Lenovo Thinkpad T60
D-Link USB Bluetooth dongle
Motorola H350 Headset
Using the gbtsco tool (http://www.stgraber.org/2007/05/20/g...dy-release-02/) I am able to pair with the headset. But I have yet to get any sound out of it. I followed these instructions (http://wiki.bluez.org/wiki/HOWTO/AudioDevices) to create a new sound device in ~/.asoundrc
When I try to use Skype, using either the bluetooth device (defined according to the Bluez instructions) or the BT-headset device that Skype comes up with, /var/log/messages fills with this sort of thing:

Auto switching bluetooth headset audio profiles
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 12, 2011
I've picked up a stereo bluetooth headset, and have been searching/configuring/tweaking for over a week now. I've gotten pretty far, and there's only one item on the list left: switching audio profiles automatically. Here the rundown:
*Running Ubuntu 10.04
*Blueman & earcandy installed.
*Can pair and input/output to my stereo bluetooth headset *manually* without issue; works in both ad2p and hsf modes, with music, etc. and Skype.
*Earcandy is doing a nice job of fading audio streams in and out - in other words if I'm playing music and Skype call comes in, it will fade out the music and fade in Skype.
*Here's where I'd like some help: While the system will fade in the Skype stream, I can not for the life of me confangle it to switch away from HQ audio (audio output only) to the hands free audio profile (LQ - audio out and mic in). I *can* use Pulseaudio volume control to switch the profile by hand, but that's not ideal. Blueman isn't doing it automatically.
Bluetooth headset and ALSA vs. PulseAudio
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 30, 2010
I running a fresh install of Xubuntu 10.10 on an Acer Aspire 3054WXMi laptop with a 3rd-party bluetooth USB dongle plugged into the side of it. - The bluetooth side of things appears to be working OK and I can pair my Samsung SBH-500 bluetooth headset and tell it to connect the "Headset service" or "Audio sink" seemingly OK, except ... I hear nothing thru' the headset, only thru' the laptop speakers.
I have read various postings about getting it working with ALSA or with PulseAudio - PulseAudio sounds easier, but the ALSA stuff is supposed to be installed already (including bluez-alsa), but doesn't seem to be working properly.
Where shall I look next?
Should I use ALSA or PulseAudio?
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.

Has anyone got Bluetooth headset to work under Slackware 14

I am trying to get my bluetooth (Motorola H375) headset to work under Slackware 14 (64 bit) on my thinkpad w530.
I run xfce and the bluetooth device manager that comes with xfce.
I can pair the headset with the adapter.

Android Bluetooth Buttons… Media Button Intents or Bluetooth Headset API?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: March 12, 2015
It think all this stuff is now well out of date, there have been many changes to this as android has developed. I'll post an answer when I have worked it out (if noone else has).
I really just want a background app to get first crack at bluetooth messages.
end of edit
I have an android app that needs input from the user - I want to use bluetooth headset buttons (actually bluetooth watch/band buttons - but technically the same!).
I have been looking at media button examples, there are many here and elsewhere which all basically say:-
1) Put receiver/intent in manifest
2) Register receiver in main activity
3) Do processing in the receiver class
This isn't working for me (even cutting and pasting sample code), with no errors, but no events being triggered.
However I also found this:
Which is a dedicated bluetooth headset api... has it superceded the media button approach? or is it just higher in
Pulseaudio not detecting bluetooth headset [closed]
- date: July 5, 2014
I am trying to connect a bluetooth headset to my RPI. My setup is the following:
archlinux-arm, kernel: linux-raspberrypi 3.12.23-1
bluez4 4.101-4 from AUR, built and installed
I scan for the device, successfully pair it, add as trusted and connect it:
bluez-simple-agent hci0 <MAC>
bt-device --set <MAC> Trusted 1
bt-audio -c <MAC>
After this, the device state is as follows (bt-device -i <MAC> output):
Name: PLT 510
Alias: PLT 510 [rw]
Trusted: 1 [rw]
Blocked: 0 [rw]
UUIDs: [Headset, Handsfree]
So, everything seems to be great, right? Well, not quite.
The issue is when I try to play audio, because it seems PulseAudio didn't recognize it and didn't register source and sink entries:
bluetooth]# pactl list sources short
