Bluetooth headset connects then disconnects
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 2, 2015
I have an Intel NUC with both an internal WiFi/Bluetooth adapter and an external Bluetooth adapter. With the internal adapter, I can turn on a Bluetooth headset and it auto-connects. With the external adapter (configred as described here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2276242), it does not auto-connect, though I can connect it manually by going to System Preferences > Bluetooth, select the headset, and click Connection > On.
I found http://metricrat.co.uk/xubuntu-bluet...n-audioheadset which notes /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf has an option AutoConnect which is unset by default. I changed it to AutoConnect=true. What I observe now is when I turn on the headset, the setting goes from Connection > Off to Connection > On and then after a second or so back to Connection > Off. If I manually move it to Connection > On, it stays connected.
(Maybe it was flip-flopping before and I just did not have system preferences open so I did not see it.)

How to get a bluetooth headset to work with PulseAudio (perhaps even Skype)?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 26, 2009
I just got myself a Nokia BH-105 Bluetooth headset which I already have been able to establish parity with Karmic.
The question is if anyone knows how should I proceed in order to get the headset work as a audio device? PulseAudio (with newest updates) doesn't seem to automatically understand the device as such and therefore it doesn't work with Skype (2.1).
Do I need to make manual configurations concerning modules in Pulse or maybe something completely else?
I have the same problem also with Jaunty, but it might be a lot different as i've understood that it uses different bluetooth software and Pulse doesn't have the same features...
Bluetooth Headset No Audio
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 16, 2012
I bought a bluetooth headset/headphones and I am able to pair it to my netbook (running Xubuntu 11.10), but the audio still comes out of the netbook speakers, not the headset. I also tried under Kubuntu with the same issue.
The headset is a Sony DR-BT101/BLK. I know the headset is fine because it works perfectly with my Android phone (Samsung Gio).
Does anyone know how to get these running under *buntu? It also has volume and media controls right on the headphones that I would also like to get working. Maybe I just need to switch the output in pulseaudio, I just don't know how to do that. Any help would be great, thanks.
(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?

Intercepting bluetooth headset commands
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 30, 2009
I have a Plantronics Voyager 510 bluetooth headset that I'd like to use along my bluetooth-enabled laptop running Ubuntu Jaunty for VoIP and stuff. I've read in the headset manual that once paired with a cellphone, you can use the buttons on the headset to place a call, terminate a call, redial last called number, transfer a call, etc. Some pretty nifty controls, if you ask me.
So I was wondering... Since I plan to use the device exclusively with my laptop, is there a way I could somehow detect those button presses on my laptop and have it execute a predefined script? I am fine with having to write a python or a C/C++ program myself or perhaps even a kernel module for that, I just need some directions.

Using a USB Headset with Ubuntu (11.04)?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 30, 2011
I've just done a fresh install on my box (Core 2 Duo, Nvidia graphics card, 4Gb Ram, 1Tb HDD) and most things are working great.
I'm trying to get sound working for Skype, though. I use it a lot, and would like not to have to go into windows just for that.
I have a Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 USB headset. I can't even use "test speakers" in Sound Preferences without that gui crashing, so something is very wrong.
It's detected, though:
[SOLVED] Bluetooth not working on Ubuntu 12.0.4 LTS on VMware
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 18, 2013
Hi guys, I have installed Ubuntu 12.0.4 LTS on VMware and I think there is a problem with my bluetooth. My computer is a macbook pro retina and I run VMware with my ubuntu distribution on that. On virtual machine > settings >USB and bluetooth I have enabled the 'share Bluetooth devices with Linux' however when I go to the bluetooth symbol and go on 'bluetooth Settings', I have a toggle button that is always off and below it says 'Bluetooth is disabled'. When I toggle the button, the bluetooth symbol in the top right does change from grey to white however it seams unusable.
I am unable to add any bluetooth devices which is an indication that my bluetooth is not working. Anyone know what I should do to fix this? Thank you!
Setup Ubuntu for Bluetooth connection with Iphone4
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 15, 2011
Ok the aim of this thread is to network an Iphone 4 with my Ubuntu desktop via Bluetooth. I would like to be able to share my desktop Wireless connection to my Iphone 4 wifi and sync my phone with the desktop also to transfer my documents.
Based on this old thread:
1.I start off by downloading and installing these packages:
sudo apt-get install
2. edit the /etc/network/interfaces to this:
iface lo inet loopback
iface bnep0 inet dhcp
3. In a text editor create 2 files: panup and pandown
sudo pand --connect 49:A0:98:J4:89:8E -n
sudo ifup bnep0
sudo ifdown bnep0
sudo pand -K
sudo transfer them to /etc/bluetooth/pan from your directory where you first save them
sudo cp panup /etc/bluetooth/pan/
sudo cp pandown /etc/bluetooth/pan/
