Debian :: Bluetooth Headphones In Jessie 8.0 As Output Device

Mar 24, 2015

After a lot of messing around and research, I figured out how to actually get my bluetooth headphones to connect and stay connected. Although once I shut them off, remove the device and re-add it using Blueman.

Right now, `pavucontrol` shows "Headphones (unplugged)" and there is no sound coming out of the speakers. But there is no sound coming out of the headphones either. They are set to the fallback. I've opened `alsamixer` and made sure everything was turned up. Still, no sound.

Since `bt-audio` isn't on Jessie, I don't know what I should do. It seems like this may be the missing step but I am unsure.

Debian :: No Sound In Headphones On Asus Eee 1001PX With Jessie

Sep 23, 2015

I recently bought a used Asus eee 1001PX. It came installed with some spyware called windows which I replaced with jessie. Everything works great but one thing. When I plug in headphones I get no sound in the headphones. If I have some audio running and plug them in while it's playing it doesn't cut the audio from the built in speakers off like it should do. If I start and look at Output Devices in pauvcontrol it seems like it at least recognizes that I have headphones inserted.

I didn't have a chance to test if the physical audio jack was broken while it had Windows running on it but assuming that it's not physically broken, what might be wrong? I know very little about audio, alsa, pulse and that kind of stuff so I hardly know even where to start.

Some info:
Code: Select alllspci -v

Debian Hardware :: Sound Sometimes Ceased To Work On Headphones On Jessie System

Aug 1, 2014

It has happened to my debian jessie system that the sound sometimes ceased to work, but after a quick review of alsamixer, pavucontrol it was easy to put everything back to normal. Not this time

The sound works as a charm with no headphones, but not with them, and I find them particularly useful for talking with people since the sound quality is way better...

I have alsa and pulseaudio installed on my system

uname -a
Linux device 3.14-2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.14.13-2 (2014-07-24) x86_64 GNU/Linux

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 8 Series/C220 Series Chipset High Definition Audio Controller (rev 05)

In pavucontrol everything looks normal, and the output seems to be working...

Debian Installation :: Bluetooth Not Working On Jessie

Mar 20, 2015

How to get Toshiba Satellite's bluetooth to work. Here is output that I think may be useful.... but I could be wrong. Pretty much everything I have found is outdated, has dead links, or didn't work.

So far, I've learned (at least from what I've understood) it has to do with kernel drivers/modules not working. I'm on Jessie right now since my graphics driver didn't work on the stable kernel.

Debian :: How To Pair Bluetooth Keyboard Via Command Line On Jessie

Mar 27, 2015

I installed the Open Source Media Center (OSMC) on my Raspberry Pi 2. It's based on Debian Jessie. I bought a Blueooth Keyboard (Keysonic KSK-3211) and an USB-Bluetooth adapter (CSL Bluetooth Stick Nano). And now I am looking for a way to pair the keyboard with the raspberry via command line.

I'm new to all this bluetooth stuff in debian. It's the first time I try to install it. As far as I've understood I need an agent that is started with the pairing PIN. Then I type this PIN at the keyboard and that's it. Am I right?

The problem is, that every agent I've found in howtos or descriptions like bluez-simple-agent or bluetooth-agent (like described here [URL] ....) is not installed (and as far as I know can't be installed) under Jessie.

The bluetooth adapter is recognized

Code: Select allosmc@osmc:~$ hcitool dev
        hci0    00:1A:7D:DA:71:0C
the keyboard is found
Code: Select allosmc@osmc:~$ hcitool scan
Scanning ...
        00:12:A1:70:42:28       Bluetooth Keyboard

And I can ping the keyboard

Code: Select allosmc@osmc:~$ sudo l2ping 00:12:A1:70:42:28
Ping: 00:12:A1:70:42:28 from 00:1A:7D:DA:71:0C (data size 44) ...
0 bytes from 00:12:A1:70:42:28 id 0 time 14.82ms
0 bytes from 00:12:A1:70:42:28 id 1 time 9.91ms
0 bytes from 00:12:A1:70:42:28 id 2 time 32.62ms
0 bytes from 00:12:A1:70:42:28 id 3 time 28.81ms
^C4 sent, 4 received, 0% loss

So everything seems to be ok ... but I can't find the command for pairing the keyboard. Looks like something changed in Jessie so that the old tutorials are outdated.

Debian Hardware :: Sound Output Through Both The Headphones And Speakers?

Jul 24, 2011

Ever since I installed Debian, when I plug in the headphones the sound goes out through both the headphones and the speakers (they aren't blocked). I don't mind it that much, but could it be potentially damaging to my sound hardware?

Debian Multimedia :: No SoundCard / Dummy Output - Jessie 8.3

Feb 12, 2016

I have no more sound on my debian. The only audio output I can find is the "dummy output".

When I try ask to aplay -l to display my sound cards, here's the output :

Code: Select alldevice_list:268: aucune carte son n'a été trouvée... <=> french for "no sound card found"

But I can still see my card(s) using lspci :

I already updated the system, reinstalled pulseaudio and alsa without any success.

Debian :: Bluetooth Device Installed ?

Sep 22, 2010

I've been having trouble in a couple of distros (including when I had windows installed..) getting my bluetooth working,

I have a dell vostro 1720, and the specs from dell insist there's a bluetooth adapter installed, and the laptop even has a little light which (ostensibly) indicates data being transmitted via bt... and, it's enabled in the bios.

though, dmesg | grep bluetooth

gives no results.

I've read comments on dell bluetooth for other dists, but can't seem to find any deb-specific recommendations.

So, how do i confirm that this laptop does *in deed* have a bluetooth adapter.. and... if there is one... how do let the kernel know about it?

Debian Installation :: No Bootable Device Jessie Fresh Install

Mar 5, 2016

I am having a problem with my new Toshiba Satellite Laptop... I had installed debian for some time but last week suddenly stopped working.

- the computer stopped working at all... nor bios access.
- I did a new bootable installation in USB drive and downloaded the latest debian iso from official website and created the bootable device via dd as usual.
- I installed the new debian but after I removed the usb drive in order to boot into my new system. I was taken to a screen saying "Start PXE over IPv6 -- Start PXE over IPv4 ..." I followed several links looking for a fix, and all of them lead me to disable network boot option in BIOS setup...
- I disabled but after that it appears a new message "No Bootable device -- Press restart system" and nothing happens from there.
- I have found info in Internet regarding this issue, but all I find is "windows related"
- Someone recommended me this: "The BIOS can no longer recognize the hard drive as a bootable device. This could be for a number of reasons. Your best bet, if it is still under warranty, is going to be to bring it back to where you purchased it"
- But instead, what I did was to create a new bootable device, this time containing XUBUNTU and installed it to the machine, I had the good news that the installation proceed without any problem, so I could figured out that my machine it is still alive...
- Back to my issue and hoping that something unexpected happened that fixed the machine, I got back and did a new Debian bootable device, also hoping that the latest was corrupted or something, but after reboot to my new system... the problem persisted again.
- I chose to have 1 partition in full disk.

Now I don't know what else to do... I don't like ubuntu, I have used debian for some years and I want to keep using it and I would not like to be forced to move to ubuntu or xubuntu for this.

Debian Configuration :: Udev Static Device Change From Wheezy To Jessie

Sep 9, 2015

I am using a 3rd party kernel driver that does not support udev properly. When I was using wheezy I placed the required device files in /lib/udev/devices.

The udev in jessie does not appear to support this. Is there any way to have udev create these device files or will I have to create then using a script at boot-up?

Debian Configuration :: Dmraid Device Fails To Mount After Jessie Upgrade

Oct 18, 2015

I eventually gave up and migrated to mdadm. Works just fine. Having upgraded to jessie and solved one problem

[URL] ....

I find the next one. When I boot into jessie my RAID device (just a data partition not /) is not found causing the boot to fail as per problems reported here

[URL] ....

After booting I can mount my RAID device but if it's in the fstab when booting it fails. Also, I notice that some of my lvm device names have changed. After a bit of hunting around I found a couple of solutions pointing to running dmraid as a service during boot and changing the entry for the RAID device in fstab to use the UUID.

[URL] .....

This seems to work. However this seems to be a workaround and as the lvm device paths for my / and /usr partitions have also changed, I'm wondering if there is a bug here as mentioned in the second link?

The / and /usr paths changed to /dev/dm-2 and /dev/dm-3 from the /dev/mapper/ form.

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Bluetooth Headphones - How To Automatically Connect

Sep 10, 2010

I'm running 9.10 Karmic and using Blueman 1.2 with the latest bluez stack. I have a pair of Sony DR-BT100CX bluetooth headphones. I've got them paired and working with my system. When I turn them on I can click on the blueman icon and then select the DR-BT100CX device and then choose to connect the Audio Sink. As soon as I do this my Pulseaudio is redirected and all system output is driven through the headphones. This is great!

My only issue is that I have to select the device (I don't have to re-pair it) when I turn it on. On my Windows system when I turn on the headphones the bluetooth detects them and connects and then audio routes through the headphones. I don't have to click on anything.

Does anybody know how to remove the need to click on the device and add the sync. When I turn my bluetooth mouse on the system picks it up and starts using it, so I know this is possible. I just can't find a simple way to make this happen with the headphones.

Ubuntu :: Sound Does Not Come Out Of Headphones No Digital Output?

Sep 29, 2010

Sound comes out of my laptop speakers, but only when hardware is selected as "Analog Stereo". "Digital Stereo" does not function at all. I don't think this is a priority though.

More importantly, my headphones do not have sound unless it is only partway plugged into the headphone jack. However, this does not help as sound is still coming out of my speakers. The instant I plug it all the way in, the sound disappears from both speakers and headphones. I have not tested this with multiple headphones (no access), but these ones work just fine in Windows 7 plugged in all the way.

I have tried an amazing number of things back in '09 when I was running 9.10, but gave up as no one could provide the answer. The threads that are related are:
[URL] (Don't worry about read-only file stuff, that is all resolved) [URL]

I am now on a FRESH install of 10.04 Lucid Lynx, so any changes I made in attempt to fix it is gone.

Looking into alsamixer, I found that there is a headphones column, but no bar. It just says it's on. So headphones don't seem to have their own level of volume that's set too low.

Here are some outputs: lcat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Application Specific Audio Output To Headphones Only?

I would like to know if it's possible to split the audio so that an application of my choosing only outputs sound through my headphones. I was thinking it would be possible with some of the controls in pulse, but if it is I cannot figure it out.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.10 - Speakers And Headphones Output Sound Simultaneously?

I just installed 10.10 and I'm having an issue where sound outputs from the headphones and my speakers simultaneously, and the volume control controls both outputs rather than one of them individually.This has been asked about before at this thread, but none of the solutions I've tried from there have worked. I tried installing linuxant, but it just killed my sound altogether despite uninstalling it afterward. I tried updating the Linux audio modules as per this page but to no avail.I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 (64-bit) on my own custom built desktop, which for what it's worth, contains this motherboard.
