    Hardy 8.04 and Bluetooth headsets

    Alright I did as instructed and so far so good until I tested it. When I input $ arecord -D bluetooth -f s16_LE test.wav
    I received this; Recording WAVE 'test.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 8000 Hz, Mono
    Warning: rate is not accurate (requested = 8000Hz, got = 16000Hz)
    please, try the plug plugin (-Dplug:bluetooth)

    What does this mean?

    Yeah, I think you're right. At least it worked for me without loading the kernel modules, etc. But if I don't do all the steps, I can't see the BT device on the mixer screen.

    Hello,

    Is the OPPOSITE scenario possible?
    Making Ubuntu act as a headset for my nokia ? I want to make my phone calls while not holding my mobile cell nor leaving my laptop ..

    Is it possible?

    Thanks for this. I can at last get the Bluetooth option in Skype, but I can't get any input or output working. Still, closer than before!

    I got my Plantronics Voyager 510 to work fine with Skype 2 beta under Ubuntu Hardy x64. Thanks to psyke777 and pangloss -- I, however, did not have the problems that pangloss had with the 32 bit libraries. I copied in the shared libraries like they said, but I don't get the same error message. I get:

    ALSA lib ../../../src/control/control.c:909snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL bluetooth

    Both audio in and audio out work fine despite the error, however, using the pcm device created in .asoundrc, so no complaints here.

    Wow, this seems unnecesarily complicated. Since Feisty (I think) I've been able to do this graphically with an application called Blueman. There was also another app one member from these forums wrote JUST for headsets for which I can't remember the name, since I replaced it with blueman, but it existed. Just checked his site but he recently changed it so the page is broken. So all of you go check these out.

    Worked like a charm. You are my hero! Recording quality isn't the best, but so be it! Big thank you!

    prigog: are you referring to gbtsco? None of the sco tools work with Hardy because the whole bluetooth framework has apparently been changed (I've tried and someone else had also mentioned to not use gbtsco et al.). It seems that the solution presented in this thread works for Skype but not for Gnome in general. I'm assuming the problem actually lies with PulseAudio and not the bluetooth implementation itself.

    Yes, it was gtbsco. Hmm, that's odd that blueman stil works for me then. Maybe I did some tweaking that resided in my home folder and so it got preserved tru the upgrade? Anyways I can still skype and also listen to stereo music with amarok (taht one requires a bit more config). I found the original thread where we sorted this stuff out, check it out. It's tailored to make stereo bluetooth work, but it made the skype bluetooth entry permanent as a nice secondary effect. Worth a shot in my opinion.

    thanks priegog! I've done that but Ekiga still doesn't want to work (which is what I really meant by "Gnome in general" earlier). I don't use my BT headset for anything else so I guess I'm stuck for now until Ekiga recognizes PulseAudio ...
