    No Sound via Bluetooth audio source

    Hi friends,

    When I pair my android mobile phone with Xubuntu 12.04 then after selecting audio source when I play song from my cellphone I am not able to hear anything. Though I can see data activity in lower right corner of blueman bluetooth manager's window.
    When I installed blueman in Ubuntu 12.04 then this feature was working fine.
    Can anyone please help me with this?

    Blueman is not at all intuitive, you often have to help it.

    Connect your phone

    Click on the icon and open devices, you should see the phone.

    Start playing some music on the phone

    Right click on your phone in devices and select audio source. If successful you should hear music

    If not, open up pavucontrol (install it if you haven't got it) and check your input/output settings.

    Also have a look at alsamixer, just to check that everything is unmuted
    The best things in life are free, so what are we paying for?

    I tried all you suggested no music. I immediately disconnected my phone and played music via clementine and I am able to hear sound, so I guess nothing is mute.

    Regarding pavucontrol, its just a volume controller kind of thing, do you really think that it can make a difference?

    Pulse Audio is much more than a volume controller! (I sometimes wish it weren't )

    In pavucontrol, is your phone/audio source there as a bluetooth input/output device? It should be. Also check in configuration as to which audio input(output) it is set to.

    Again check alsamixer

    Hey there! I'm trying to do the same thing. I connected to my iPod's audio source, but nothing is played. I checked pavucontrol and alsamixer, and none of them showed my bluetooth source. I don't really need it, but I'd like to make it work if possible. I'm using Ubuntu Studio.
