    Re: My Solution: Hardy 8.04 and Bluetooth headsets

    Havel,

    Good to know I'm not alone. I'm in the process of moving to Korea, so I'll probably be occupied for the next couple days. Hoping to tackle this problem over there. Good luck on the Skype forums. I'll post again as soon as I have more info.

    I have noticed that dmesg shows this output:
    Code:

    Not sure what it means yet. Maybe someone smarter than myself has some input.

    Re: My Solution: Hardy 8.04 and Bluetooth headsets

    HI,

    Progress! I can run the arecord and a play and get white noise in my earpiece!!! however I cant hear the recording! running alsamixer and the mic part is at 00 and wont let me increase volume?

    Also despite this i should get something in Skype and although I can see the device in the sounds config in skype it doesnt work - just keeps saying 'problem with Audio playback' - it works fine onthe main laptop speakers and mic.....

    any thoughts?

    /M

    Re: My Solution: Hardy 8.04 and Bluetooth headsets

    I followed the instructions step by step, and it works. Thanks a lot! However, since I changed my bluetooth device, I have not been able to play back to my headset anymore...

    I can still record voice, e.g. with arecord, and also play the recorded file with aplay on my notebook speakers. If I try to play the same file on my headset, the headset turns on, but the file will not be played. The headset remains turned on until I kill aplay...

    Any ideas what's going wrong? Has anybody had (and maybe solved) the same problem? Thanks for any replies.

    Re: My Solution: Hardy 8.04 and Bluetooth headsets

    Since I am not a Skype user, I don't know if this is a problem because using the bluetooth headset will only work with skype or if I am having some other issues.

    I am using a Plantronics Voyager 520, and my VOIP client is Xten. When I go to the audio wizard, it only recognizes the built-in hardware, and there is not option to point toward the BT headset. So is the problem because of the client or did I miss a step in setup.

    I am using blueman to manange the BT connection...

    I fired up Xten softphone, and when I went to the audio wizard, it doesn't allow me to change any of the devices (microphone or speaker). Looks like I am stuck using a wired headphone/mic and get rid of the bluetooth option altogether...

    **** The adventure continues:

    Digging around, I realized that possibly Xten didn't know how to play nicely with bluetooth, so I moved to twinkle (which can be found in the repositories). It does recognize bluetooth devices, and I was almost ready to dance a jig. Of course, when I fire up twinkle, it says it is not able to access to access the bluetooth device:

    Critical: Opening ALSA driver failed: snd_pcm_hw_params_any failed: Invalid argument

    Any suggestions on how to get that working?

    Re: My Solution: Hardy 8.04 and Bluetooth headsets

    using hardy..

    when i reach the part to do
    pactl load-module module-alsa-sink device=bluetooth

    it says
    Failure: Module initalization failed

    when doing
    aplay -D bluetooth -f s16_le /usr/share/sounds/login.wav
    it says
    ALSA lib pcm.c:2145snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM bluetooth
    aplay: main:546: audio open error: No such file or directory


    Seems hardy is poor in dealing with bluetooth headset.
    Is there no easy way?

    Windows is a lot easier..

    I must agree! I tried some of the other stuff mentioned and it was needlessly difficult. Why not just use a pre-made script which does it all? I feel it is my duty as an ubuntero to help others find the method which "just works". Not only am I listening to my music on my headset, but I can also control playback with the buttons on it.
    Something I am having a harder time with, however, is thanking secr3tuprising here. Can anyone explain to me how I can do that?
    Thanks,
    Brad

    I have two headsets. Plantronics 510 and Jawbone2. The Plantronics works perfectly, the Jawbone2 behaves like yours.

    This behavior is identical on my x86 and x64 systems.

    No idea.

    Is there an undo script to go with this?
