Debian Hardware :: Sid (xfce) - Can't Get Bluetooth Headset To Connect

Feb 22, 2016

I am using Debian sid(xfce). I have a bluetooth dongle and a bluetooth headset. The headset supports only the HFP and HSP profiles.

I think I have installed all the necessary packages but I have problems connecting to it. Pairing works, but connecting via a profile doesn't.

The dongle works great for transferring files to other devices.

When I tell blueman to connect to either profile of the headset it connects for maybe one second and then immediately disconnects with the error:

Failed to connect: org.bluez.Error.Failed

Debian Hardware :: Pulseaudio Incorrectly Recognizes Bluetooth Headset As Mono

Sep 10, 2014

Having trouble with pulseaudio (0.9.21, Debian Squeeze) failing to properly recognize a Turtle Beach X-ray headset?

My tv connects fine, playing Dolby Digital through it without issue, but my computer doesn't. (A possible side effect: Flash videos play in slow-mo when the headset is connected to the computer's bluetooth adapter, but not when the headset is disconnected.)

Is there a way to tell Pulseaudio to give the headset 6 channels?

Some info:

Code: Select all~ » pulseaudio --dump-modules                                                 
module-alsa-card                        ALSA Card
module-alsa-sink                        ALSA Sink
module-alsa-source                      ALSA Source
module-always-sink                      Always keeps at least one sink loaded even if it's a null one
module-augment-properties      Arugment the property sets of streams with additional static information
module-bluetooth-device                 Bluetooth audio sink and source

[Code] ....

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth Headset Keeps Disconnecting?

Jan 15, 2010

short version: My bluetooth headset keeps disconnecting.Full version:I'm using a 64-bit distro of 9.10 on a 1.6 GHz AMD Turion 64 laptop, with an external bluetooth dongle and a bluetooth headset. The dongle is recognized right off, the headset pairs perfectly through the bluetooth preferences panel, and sound redirects through the soundpreferences panel... For about 2 minutes. I know, it's odd, but every 2 minutes or so bluetooth disconnects from the headset. Sound shifts to the speakers, the applications don't miss a beat, and when I reconnect the headset through the bluetooth control it shifts right back to the headset. This happens regardless of other programs running. I tried it with no other applications running, and with a fairly heavy load, and it reoccurs.Here's the odd part: I had the CPU set on "Ondemand," to save battery power, but when I plugged in and shifted it to "Performance," it started happening ever 4 minutes or so...I've Googled around and found plenty about getting my headset to connect, but nothing about KEEPING it connected

So I picked up a really cheap BT USB dongle (~$2) and can use the mic just fine but audio won't work. code...

I figure that I'm just overlooking something (I checked all the volume sliders and "mute" checkboxes I could find) or that I need to get a better BT dongle. Any thoughts?

Fedora Hardware :: Bluetooth Headset Disconnects?

Jan 23, 2010

I am on Fedora 12.I have a USB bluetooth dongle and a bluetooth headset.The dongle gets recognised fine and I can pair the headset as well. PulseAudio sees the input and output of the headnet perfectly. It also runs perfectly for about one minute, and then the headset is disconnected. Why?During the sixty seconds where everything works, I also hear a beep (about every 20 seconds).After disconnecting I have to put the headset back into pairing mode and then remake the connection. And then everything works for another minute, and then the headset is disconnected again. Why

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth Headset Pairing Succesful, But Can't Use It?

Jan 18, 2011

I have a bluetooth headset that I hope I can get to work with Ubuntu 10.10 so that I can use it with Skype.I am using these instructions to get it to work. However, there are some differences between my experience and what I expect from the instructions, ultimately leading to some errors.First, I should mention that according to Blueman device manager, it would seem I have successfully paired my device. It has a MAC address. I have attached a screen shot of the interface:It sure looks like the device is recognized by my system. However, when I get to step 5, the MAC address of the one device I see is not the same as the one in the interface above:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Bluetooth Headset As Headphones?

Mar 9, 2011

I have a Sony Ericsson HBH-PV700 bluetooth headset that came packaged with a Sony Ericsson K510i phone.I was hoping to be able to use it under Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat as a headset and POSSIBLY as a microphone...I don't think it supports a2dp, so maybe this is a waste of effort. The Bluetooth adapter I'm using is Bluetooth 2.0 compilant, as far as I know. (It may be 1.2, but there's no way it's 1.1 compilant).

I have paired it with my PC and tried finding it as output and input in the Sound option. There's nothing in [System > Preferences > Multimedia Systems Selector] either! I have also tried the instructions at the Ubuntu Community Help Pages for Bluetooth Headset. However, my system fails to initialise the module-alsa-sink and module-alsa-source via the pactl command .I don't even know if it is possible with this device, but I'm willing to give anything a try! P.S. I'm not comfortable with installing a ton of packages just for one thing, but if there's no other option it's fine, I guess.

Hardware :: Playing Music In Bluetooth Headset ?

Sep 10, 2009

I have compiled Bluez 4.50 for arm and have installed it. The bluetoothd daemon is running fine. But when I enabled the blueoothd -nd & i get an error saying, Failed to access HAL. After a bit of digging, i tried installing hal on the board in vain. The hcitool scan runs fine and shows all the devices in the vicinity. I compiled agent.c from the test folder and am using it to pair in command line because i donot have python on the board. I see the packets getting txd and rxd in the hcidump when i try to pair with the headset. even the light in the headset changes after pairing. but i donot hear any sound when i play a *.wav file.

Hardware :: Bluetooth Headset - USB Dongle Support For A2DP?

Feb 23, 2009

I'm running Slackware with 2.6.26 kernel. I've got bluez-utils,libs version 3.26 (Slackware 12.1 precompiled package), and kdebluetooth. I'm using a Digicom Palladio Usb Bluetooth adapter. In general, bluetooth seems to work; I can send files to my Nokia phone. Now, I've got this Bluetooth stereo headset (brand rather unknown, and I've thrown the package away, I've only got the little user manual, and there is no indication on who built this thing).

This is what I've tried so far:
- turn the headset on and turned pairing mode on;
- kbluetooth -> Configuration -> Input devices (input?) -> Search;
- kbluetooth finds the headset and asks that I insert the pin code; a little star appears next to the name of the headset ("Stereo Headset"), but after a couple of seconds disappears and at the same time I hear a beep coming from the headset (disconnection?). Anyway, just before the beep, noise came from the headset (as if it had turned on), then, after the beep, nothing.
- Important thing: the headset manual says the Usb dongle must support A2DP and AVRCP. I don't know how to find out whether my dongle supports them, anyway, if I execute 'sdptool', in the "Services" section I get: [Code} ....

Does this mean that bluez/my usb dongle doesn't support A2DP? Anyway, I followed the instructions on "Bluez - Trac - AudioDevices" [URL] and added the specified part to .asoundrc. Of cource, even if I tell xine to use "bluetooth" as pcm device, it says the device is unknown.

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth And Skype \ Make A Call Using These Headphones With Skype, Can Speak For Say 10 Seconds And Then The Headset Disconnects Completely From The System?

Aug 12, 2010

I recently bought a IOgear USB bluetooth adapter and a Sony DRBT101/BLK bluetooth headphones to use with my computer.Whenever I try to make a call using these headphones with skype, I can speak for say 10 seconds and then the headset disconnects completely from the system. I then have to reconnect the headset by switching it off and on. I do not have this problem listening to music using A2DP. It works fine with my mobile phone.When I change the profile to Telephony Duplex (HSP/HFP), it shows up as hands free, I thought it should be headset in blueman manager. My friend uses Plantronics headset with is Dell laptop with built in bluetooth and he says his comes up as headset not hands free. Could this be causing the problem?

Debian Multimedia :: Doesn't Seem To Detect New Headset

Jan 11, 2011

I just purchased a Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB Headset. It works fine in Windows but unfortunately the same can't be said for Linux. It doesn't even seem to be detected as when I use the command cat /proc/bus/input/devices I get

I: Bus=0003 Vendor=0b38 Product=0003 Version=0110
N: Name="USB-compliant keyboard"
P: Phys=usb-0000:00:1d.2-1/input0
S: Sysfs=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.2/usb8/8-1/8-1:1.0/input/input0
U: Uniq=

I checked Volume control and I have Headphone checked, and in switched Headphone is also checked. Actually... Maybe it is being detected... In the Device dropdown menu in Volume control I see "Logitech USB Headset". I checked that and the volume is turned up, speaker and microphone are selected in preferences... Sound is still coming out of my monitor's speakers though.

Debian :: No Sound For Jack-plugged Headset Or Speakers After Resuming From Suspend

Sep 4, 2015

When I suspend my computer, everything resumes fine... but the sound. The sound actually still works for the internal speakers, but not anymore for any jack-plugged headset or speakers. If I reboot, it works again. I also see nothing in the logs (dmesg, /var/log/messages).

These two commands return the same thing before and after resuming:

Code: Select allwoowoo:~$ cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [HDMI           ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel HDMI
                      HDA Intel HDMI at 0xf7a14000 irq 34
 1 [PCH            ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel PCH
                      HDA Intel PCH at 0xf7a10000 irq 33


I also tried

Code: Select allsudo alsa force-reload

As it was recommended a lot when I googled it, but it seems that the alsa bin/script is not available on debian. It tells me repeatedly to install alsa-base, which was already installed. The following commands have been run one after the other, in that order:

Code: Select allroot:~# alsa force-reload

The program 'alsa' is currently not installed.  You can install it by typing:

apt-get install alsa-base
alsa: command not found
Code: Select allroot:~# sudo apt-get install alsa-base
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
alsa-base is already the newest version.

[Code] ....

How to prevent me from rebooting each time I need sound after suspending my computer?

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth Keyboard Will Not Connect On Reboot On 10.04?

Oct 14, 2010

I have a Rocketfish bluetooth keyboard and mouse combo and am running Ubuntu 10.04. The mouse was easy to set up. I just went to the bluetooth icon and clicked add new device and it connected. The same wasn't true for the keyboard. It gives me the code to type so I typed it and pressed enter and... nothing. So I found a little tutorial and I had to install bluez and type in the terminal, "sudo hidd --search" then enter my password (which I needed to grab my other keyboard to do) and it connected. If I don't use it for a while or reboot, the keyboard will not connect. I have to do the hidd search again which means I need to keep my extra keyboard handy. I had it set up before where it would connect on a reboot, but I got a new hard drive and reinstalled Ubuntu, now I can't remember how I set it up. Could I have set up bluez wrong?

And the system answers :

On fedora 10, or 11, I can use this command with all users. On fedora 12, only the root user can connect and use this device. Other users have the message :

Can't open RFCOMM device: Permission denied What can I do to resolve this problem?
